I want to show you how you can have a comprehensive chest workout with a power tower within this guide. Since we can apply different workout stations, we can have a more versatile and effective home chest training to build muscle.
First, I’ll show you the exercises, then workout ideas for beginners and advanced sportspeople.
Note: The videos below are made for the standard movements. However, you can imagine how to use the push-up handles to perform the exercises.
This post is part of the power tower workout series.
Power tower chest exercises
The push up is the king of the upper body exercises that works the shoulders, triceps, and chest muscles. Thanks to push-up bars on the tower, we can go deeper, leading to strength improvement.
We need to set our feet on something elevated for decline presses. A box or a chair will do. This way, the movement is more challenging, and more weight is put on the upper chest. There is no need to place your feet too high since that works mainly the front shoulders.
Incline presses are more comfortable to perform than standard push-ups since less load is put on the chest. Hence, they are beginner-friendly moves. But, these presses target the lower chest. You can do incline push-ups with the power tower by grasping the D-bars at the bottom. If the machine doesn't have such bars, you can use two chairs instead.
The regular dip targets the triceps, but we can put more load on the chest by leaning forward. This training is excellent to target the lower pecs.
Want to raise the power and size of your chest? Do single arm press up with the push-up handle! It's a challenging exercise, even for the most skilled athletes.
For this practice, you don't need to use the power tower. Just do it on the floor. It targets the triceps and middle chest.
Thanks to the push-up handle, we can have a more extended range of motion for this workout. This move engages all the muscles of the upper body.
This exercise is excellent for those who can do plenty of standard push-ups and want to move forward. We need to distribute our weight on the sides to put more load on the chest muscles.
