  3. Incline Dumbell press 4 X 10

That’s all you need to do, to follow Chris Bum Chest Workout Routine. He follows a strict diet and takes his supplements.

1. PEC DECK 3 X 20

A pec deck is a machine designed to increase strength and muscle mass in the chest. It’s so effective that the American Council on Exercise ranked it as one of the best exercises for building chest muscles.

“The pec deck works both your chest and its supporting muscles, primarily your pectoralis major, which is the muscle that allows you to swing and bring your arms together,” explains Caleb Backe, a certified personal trainer, and health and wellness expert for Maple Holistics.

2. Incline Barbell bench press 6 X 10

The incline bench press trains your chest, triceps, and shoulders, but what sets it apart from other exercises is its ability to train the clavicular head of your pecs—also referred to as your “upper chest.” 

For instance, certain exercises, like the flat and decline bench press, emphasize the larger sternocostal head of the pecs, while others, like the incline and reverse-grip bench press, emphasize the smaller clavicular head.

3. Incline Dumbell press 4 X 10

Unlike the more traditional flat bench press, the incline press shifts the movement’s focus to the upper portion of the pectoral muscle groups and the front of the shoulder. This allows for more significant hypertrophy (muscle growth) of the upper chest when the exercise is performed regularly.1

The incline dumbbell press is designed to increase chest strength and size, so it’s typically included in a well-rounded, intermediate strength training program. If you split up your weekly workouts by body part, include this chest exercise on your upper body or chest day, after exercises like pushups or the flat bench press.

4. Dumbell Fly 4 X 15

The dumbbell fly is often thought of as a classic bodybuilding movement as the goal of the exercise is to isolate the chest for aesthetic purposes. The movement itself can be used to help build a stronger bench press but isn’t typically thought of from an increased performance standpoint.

5. Cable Chest 4 X 15

A cable machine is a type of equipment that attaches some form of a handle to a cable pulley system, which connects to a weight stack. There are various kinds of cable machines, but for the purpose of this article, we are referring to a cable crossover machine, which is the most versatile cable machine and the one used for chest exercises. 

6. 100 Pushup

The last workout of Chest Day is 100 Pushups, if you are able to do 100 pushups after doing all this exercise, you may be or can be Next Olympia(just kidding).

A hundred Pushups is the ultimate program to train the body to go from just one pushup to 100 consecutive reps.

So this is all about the Chest Workout of CBum, you can follow him on Instagram as well as on YouTube.


Chris Bumstead, age 27, was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. At six feet tall, he has a contest weight of 225 pounds. In the offseason, he typically gets up to 260 to 265 pounds.
