Example text

The pectoralis major adducts, flexes, and internally rotates the arm, thus moving the arm forward and across the chest during movements such as a push-up or a bear hug. Even though the muscle has only two anatomic divisions, functionally it may be considered as having three sections—upper, middle, and lower—depending on the angle through which the arm is moved. As the position of the shoulder joint changes, certain fibers of the chest muscle have a better mechanical advantage for creating motion.

The pectoralis minor muscle lies deep beneath the pectoralis major. It has only a minor function and does not contribute to the size of the chest. Sitting on an incline bench, take a shoulder-width overhand grip on a barbell. Lower the weight slowly until the bar touches your upper chest. Push the bar straight up until your elbows lock out. 48 Muscles Involved Primary: Upper pectoralis major Secondary: Anterior deltoid, triceps brachii Anatomic Focus upper chest Trajectory: The angle of incline determines trajectory.

The upper pectoral is best targeted when the backrest is inclined 30 to 45 degrees to the floor. Steeper inclines of 60 degrees or more switch the focus to the anterior deltoid. Grip: Dumbbell orientation affects hand position. Grasping the dumbbells with a pronated grip (palms facing forward) affords a greater stretch as the weights are lowered to the starting position. A neutral grip (palms facing each other) generates a better contraction at the lockout position. Range of motion: To maximize pectoral work, flare your elbows out wide as the dumbbells are lowered and touch the dumbbells together at the top of the movement.
