Pec Minor Dip
Body part worked: Chest
When to do it: After bench presses, or mid-way through your chest workout
How to do it: Suspend your body over parallel bars and, keeping your elbows locked, allow your shoulder blades to come together as you lower your body closer to the floor. You’ll feel a slight stretch in your pecs. Now spread your shoulders and push your body upward again. The movement is slight, but you’ll feel your pecs working.
Benefits: This kind of dip works the pec minor, the smaller pec muscle that lies under the pec major. You can’t target it well with conventional chest exercises, but it contributes significantly to the overall size and shape of your chest.
Prescription: Do three to four sets of 8–12 reps after you’ve completed any bench pressing. Try stretching your pecs between sets to encourage even more blood flow to the area.
