Chest Training with Victor Martinez

One of the most popular bodybuilders is older, wiser, and still a force in the pro ranks.



  • Incline Dumbbell Flye 4 10–15
    • superset with* Flat-bench Dumbbell Flye 4 10–15
  • Incline Barbell Press 3–4 10–15
  • Incline Dumbbell, Machine, or Smith Machine Press** 3–4 10–15
  • Flat-bench Dumbbell or Smith Machine Press 4 10–15
  • Decline Dumbbell Press 4 10–15
    • superset with Dumbbell Pullover or Parallel-bar Dip 4 15
  • Cable Crossover*** 4 12–15

*Unlike with a traditional superset, Martinez does rest in between the two flye variations for about 20 to 30 seconds, just enough to regain some strength and maintain proper form on the second exercise.

**If he does a second incline exercise, it’ll usually be one of these three options.

***He’ll do these every other workout during the off-season, and every workout pre-contest, switching it up between the high and low pulley versions.
