Looking for the best chest workout so you can achieve maximum gains? You’re definitely not alone! Just keep in mind that you may not find the answer in a single chest exercise—or a single workout, for that matter. We’ve certainly seen more success with a more holistic approach to chest-building exercises and workouts.
But why is building a strong chest so important in the first place? For one thing, our pectoral muscles are some of the largest muscles on the body; along with other upper body muscles, they’re responsible for controlling arm rotation, punching, and upper-body strength. But hey, if you also just want to enjoy a strong, sculpted chest—we get that too!
If you’re ready to finally achieve an awesome, chiseled chest, we’ve collected 5 of our favorite Studio SWEAT onDemand classes with the best chest workouts you can try at home.

While we are putting the spotlight on the chest for this blog, the best chest workouts are the ones that work the ENTIRE body. That’s why we love this full-body workout that doesn’t forget the chest—and pretty much gets you sweatin’ your heart out. In an hour, you’ll be targeting areas like the chest, back, glutes, legs, and so much more. Plus, we threw in a few surprise cardio sprints just to shake things up!
