Anatomy of the breast, what muscle groups can and should you workout?

Before we jump straight to chest Workout, it is good to know how this anatomical works.

The pectoralis major is located on the front of the chest.The pectoralis major is located on the front of the chest. It is a thick, fan-shaped muscle, which is divided into two parts that start at the armpit and that the largest portion of the front of the chest.
The upper, clavicular part is attached to the clavicle (collarbone). The lower, sternocostale part is largely attached to the sternum (breast bone) and the cartilago costalis (rib cartilage).

This muscle is used as you move along your arms for your chest, if you lift your arms and leave bags and if you use your arms about. The clavicular portion lifts the arm on the sternocostale part and pulls the arm down.

The pectoralis minor is a small triangular muscle that lies deep beneath the pectoralis major.
The main function of the pectoralis minor is stabilizing and ensure a downward rotation of the scapula (the shoulder blade).

The chest muscles, exercise can be done by means of different chest exercises.

The most famous chest muscle exercises are the following.

How often you train chest muscles per week?

How often should I work out?
I hear that question often.
The optimal number of training depends on your goals. You just want to improve your fitness or work out then 1-2 times a week sufficient.
Would you like more muscular strength or muscle mass then you have at least 2 times a week a training required.
Clear progress book you only when you 3 x/week.
The best is 3 x or more spread about the week in which therefore cardio training in it.
Muscles need rest did you know that?
A muscle group GROWS after each workout for more than 3 to 4 days long.
By the muscle group within 3 to 4 days after a workout to train again work only against growth.

Where was Arnold Schwarzenegger famous for in his bodybuilding days?

Arnold SchwarzeneggerOkay, his biceps were big, but what else was far more impressive were his chest muscles.
Arnold had very well-developed chest muscles, so big that you could put a glass on the top.
How he did this is not by secret chest exercises or something, but just by the exercises you just have seen.
Where he is possessed of was is super heavy exercises with free weights, well the equipment at that time were not as if now, but multiple muscles at once you train with free weights so you get a balanced spierbalanse.
