JACKSON’S CHEST TRAINING RULES
- Free-weight movements like bench presses and incline presses with both barbells and dumbbells should form the core of your workouts to build a solid foundation of size.
- Attack your chest from multiple angles, using the fat, incline, and decline benches to work all areas of your chest.
- Keep your chest high and shoulders back to maintain stress on the pecs.
“A lot of bodybuilders claim to be the strongest. But how many of them have a belt at home that says ‘World’s Strongest Bodybuilder?’ ”—Johnnie Jackson, 2009 Olympia World’s Strongest Bodybuilder
