IFBB Pro and MHP athlete, Victor Martinez, is a legend in the sport of bodybuilding.
And while he’s getting older, he’s not slowing down in the gym.
Instead, he’s finding ways to modify his workouts to remain injury free and prolong his career.
Today, he’s focused on stimulating the muscle. He’s no longer going heavy and opts for an extremely high volume workout to keep his chest conditioned.
This video outlines his chest workout. Check it out for yourself and give the workout a try during your next chest day.
|A1. Incline Dumbbell Press||4||15|
|A2. Incline Dumbbell Fly||4||15|
|B1. Machine Chest Press||4||10-15|
|B2. Low Cable Chest Fly||4||15|
|Hammer Strength Machine Decline Press||5||12|
|Barbell Bench Press||5||12|
On incline dumbbell fly, hold the weight as close to the end of the top of the dumbbell as possible.
On machine chest press, perform each set in a strip set fashion. After your second set, rest for a brief period and continue to press one arm at a time. The first set, you’ll perform 15 reps, the strip you’ll perform 12 reps, and on the unilateral, you’ll perform 10 reps. That equals 1 set.
On Hammer Strength decline presses, you’ll want to lean back a little bit. The way the machine’s range of motion is fixed, you end up pushing out and up. If you lean back slightly, you’ll be able to create a more traditional pressing motion.
On bench press, for the first and last set, you’ll perform 6 reps and hold in the bottom position for 5 seconds. Then, you perform another 6 reps followed by a 5 second hold and rerack the weight.
