3 Chest Exercises You Should Do As Tri Sets

Updated on June 6, 2015

Questions About Tri-sets

What exactly are tri-sets and why should you do them, and what exercises should you choose to do if you do them for your chest? These questions will be answered throughout the rest of this Hub, but the main point of this article is to discuss what three exercises you should do as tri-sets.

With that said, feel free to read the rest of this hub to learn more about tri-sets and which exercises are the best to do as tri-sets.

Tri Sets: What Are They Exactly

Let's get straight to the point here. Three exercises performed back-to-back-to-back, with a rest after the third one is done is one tri set completed. Oh, and the exercises performed are for one body-part. In this case, the three exercises you will do are for chest. So, with this said, let's give you an example of what a tri set. If you choose three different chest exercises, then you will do them all consecutively, and count it as one set (a tri set) after you have done all three. You then rest and perform the desired number of tri sets. It's as simple as that.

Also, a lot of people seem to get confused between giant sets and tri-sets. Regardless of what people say, giant sets are different, as you do at least 4 exercises in a row, not just 3.

Why Do Tri Sets For Chest

There are a lot of reasons why you should do tri sets for your chest. You can give your chest a great workout with tri sets, and tri sets are quite intense, and you could use them to get ripped or bulk up. It's simple, if you do heavy weight with tri sets, then you increase your chances of bulking up and getting stronger on your chest exercises. If you train with light weight and high reps, then you increase your chances of burning off more fat and getting more ripped. In other words, use tri sets for chest if you want to get ripped, bigger, stronger and so forth.

As previously mentioned, tri-sets are intense, but you will find that they are useful to use if you are on a very limited schedule. In other words, if you want to get results in the gym, then consider using tri-sets.

The truth is that it is up to you as to what three chest exercises you should do as tri sets. But, there are a few pieces of advice that you might want to consider, and with that said, some of the best combinations, in our opinion, are found below.
