Men tend to associate getting chiselled muscles with spending hours in a sweat-smelling room pumping weights to the sound of loud music. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you’re really serious about building your chest muscles, you can get a very effective chest workout in the comfort of your own home.
“Really?” You will ask. Yes, really. Think about it. Do you need weights to perform push-ups and dips? Yes you need them to perform chest presses and flyes, but you can use your own dumbbells. So there, you see. Some of the most effective weight training exercises can easily be done in the comfort of your own home.
You can perform this major workout for the chest anywhere. At home, on the road, even at work if you can find an empty conference room. You can get more out of the workout by varying the width of your hands. Place your hands wider to work the outer part. Narrow them to get your triceps working as well.

This is another exercise that doesn’t require any gym equipment at all. It does a great job of developing both your chest and upper body.
Simple, effective and no gym needed.
Even though you’ll probably miss the luxury of having a bench to do this exercise, it can be done just as effectively on the floor. You will need a set of dumbbells though to get the most out of the exercise.
This exercise is like the dumbbell fly, but different. When you start, your arms should be above your chest (like the dumbbell fly), but this time let your palms face forward. Lower your arms until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle on both sides. To return to the starting position, push your arms straight up to the sky.
