Strengthening your pectorals using 2 chairs is very easy and you can do it by training at home.
The months of confinement have given us the knowledge that you can train at home without equipment.
There are some recommendations on how to train chest muscles using two chairs. If you've been training at home for months, and it looks like you will be doing it for another few months, it is time to improve your routines.
Sometimes good sports equipment doesn't have to be the newest, nor the most expensive, you just need to be willing to train and be creative.
Chest work is divided into three areas, more focused on the shoulders, more on the upper pectorals and the lower part.
Tips for training pectorals at home with 2 chairs:
- One-handed push-ups: Place your hand on the floor in a plank position, with one hand on the floor and the other on the bottom of the chair, and start doing the push-ups. Ten with each arm.
- Push-ups: You put your hands on the seats of the chairs, lift your whole body until it is almost horizontal, and start doing the push-ups and pull-downs with all your strength in your arms. 10 repetitions. If you find you can't, use foot support.
- Push-ups on chairs: With your feet on the seat of the chair you start doing push-ups, but each time you do one, you move your hands a little bit, opening and closing spaces. One push-up with your arms wide open, another with your arms tightly closed. Like that, up to 10 repetitions.
To train at home you just need to be willing and master the technique of each exercise to avoid injuries. There are many people who have taken advantage of confinement to train at home and be healthy.
