This week's Movement Monday will be focusing on 2 of the major chest muscles.

It will be a quick but informative lesson, giving you a basic understanding of your pec muscles.

So let's get started!

Today's focus is on our Pectoralis Major and Pectoralis Minor. Our Pectoralis Major is the larger of the two and lays above the Pectoralis Minor.

The Pectoralis Major originates at the Clavicle, Sternum, and costal cartilages of 2-6 ribs. While inserting at the Greater Tubercle and Lateral lip of the Intertubercular sulcus of the Humerus, which is a groove between the head and neck of the Humerus.

While the Pectoralis Minor originates at anterior ribs 2-5, 3-5, or 2-4 depending on the purpose and inserting at the Coracoid process of the scapula, which is a bone that runs between the clavicle and acromion process of the front of our scapula.

Below are 10 chest exercises that you can utilize in the gym or at home that focus on your pec muscles.
