What excercises build the pec and ab muscles?
Asked by on Oct 24, 2010
I am just wondering how I can improve my pecs and abs! I need some more muscle.
The best exercises to build the chest muscles are chest flies and chest presses done on the weight bench, and push ups – both basic and variations. The best exercises for your abs include the various crunches – on the mat or on the exercise ball - that target the rectus abdominus (the ‘six-pack’) and exercises that target the entire torso, such as the bicycle, captain’s chair leg raises and the plank. To build muscle anywhere in the body, exercise on 2 or 3 non-consecutive days each week. Read about exercises for your chest and exercises for your abs from the Guide to Exercise at About.com.
