So, you’ve declared today to be chest day. Does the order of the exercises you perform make any difference, as long as they’re all exercises that hit your chest? If you want a truly effective workout, you bet it does. Start your routine using the heavier compound moves while you’re feeling fresh and your energy level is high. After a few such exercises, you can tone it down with isolation moves as your energy begins to fade. Finish off with refining moves, especially if you’re looking to tweak your symmetry or aesthetic. By using an order that matches resistance with energy, you’ll optimize your workout efficiency.
