Re: Chest Building
First of all, How old are you? If you're still young your chest will fill out towards the end of puperty anyways so don't worry about it being small right now, And judging by the size of your waist, your chest isn't that small. But is that the shirt size? or the actual inflated and flexed measurement?
Anyways, If you're new to working your chest then yes do 3 sets of 10 on bench (try incline as well) or another compound chest exercise for the first little while. That will set you up with a good foundation and develop stabilizers for when you get into a solid routine. (if you're new to working out all together this is a good rep scheme to start with for all exercises)
Stick to basics, don't get into a 6 day split with 5 different exercises per muscle doing all sorts of sets and reps for each one. 3 days a week is plenty, and don't forget to do cardio on your off days.
But if you're worried about your chest measurement work your lats as well.
Make sure to keep a pretty solid diet as well. try to take in 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight and try to eat as healthy as you can. Getting into massive specifics is just frustrating.
work your entire body, your chest will develop much quicker
I'm going to be completely honest with you, compared to average, a 37 chest (especially if this is inflated and flexed) would be considered small, but as I said above, proportionately it's not. After a few months you won't have to worry about it anyways.
talk to ya later
Each Rep Is Right, Each Set Right, Each Workout Right, Each Meal Right And Each Night's Sleep Right
