incline press without bench

Don’t have an incline bench? No elaborate home gym? But don’t want to sacrifice your ability to develop an impressive upper chest (you know…the area where it meets your collar bone and forms almost a “shelf” that stands out in almost any shirt!)

DON’T WORRY…I’ve got you covered!

target upper chestThis is actually one of the more common mistakes I see guys make. Getting locked into thinking that there’s only ONE way to train a certain muscle…or that a certain piece of equipment MUST be used in order to get results! With ATHLEAN-X…that couldn’t be further from the truth!

MISTAKE…Workout programs that make you “equipment dependent”, as I like to call it, are usually successful at only one thing…providing you with an excuse when you DON’T have one of the things that they recommend.

Instead, with A-X…not only has the recommended equipment been minimized (to only a pullup bar, some dumbbells, a band, and something to lay on…yep…that can even be the floor!) but with the way the exercises are constructed you’re NEVER up a creek without a paddle even if you didn’t have one of these items!

In other words, ATHLEAN-X leaves no room for X-Cuses. But then again, as an avid watcher of my videos and someone looking to get in the best shape of your life…I don’t think you’d have it any other way would you?
