Roles Of All these Workouts
Incline dumbbell press- This workout mainly works on the upper chest, but it also works on your front delts (shoulders).
Flat dumbbell press – It mainly works on the center of your chest.
Decline dumbbell press – This one works on the lower part of your chest.
Pec deck fly – It creates the vertical line in between your chest by lifting up your inner chest.
Front dumbbell raises- It works on front delts (shoulders) as the main muscle but works a little bit on the upper chest area as well.
Side dumbbell raises- This one works on the side of your shoulders and gives them that bowling ball-like look from the sides.
Dumbbell shoulder raises- This workout works on the upper part of your shoulders.
Incline dumbbell rear lateral raises- As the name suggests, this one works on the rear part of your shoulders.
Seated one arm overhead extension- This workout works on the long head of the tricep, which makes up most of your triceps.
Dumbbell seated overhead extension- This one also targets the long head from a different angle. For the best results, you must include both one arm and double-arm seated overhead extension workouts.
Tricep cable pushdown- This one mainly hits the lateral head of your tricep.
Reverse grip tricep cable pushdown- It targets the medial head area of your triceps, which is the smallest and often ignored part of your triceps. You must work on this one to gain size and detail in the lower part of your triceps.
If you’re gonna follow this push workout plan, along with a good pull workout plan on other days and a good diet plan, you’ll be able to add some impressive size and details to your muscles within 2 to 3 months.
