What exercise will increase endurance for my chest?

Really, any chest exercise can help build endurance in your chest muscles. To increase endurance, you simply have to tweak a few variables in your program. Because muscular endurance is defined as the ability of the body to produce low levels of force for prolonged periods of time, you will simply need to perform less sets (1 to 3) of more repetitions (12 - 25). Additionally, these exercises should be performed at 50 - 70% of your one repetition maximum with a rest interval up to 90 seconds. Great chest exercises include: push-ups, dumbbell chest press, barbell chest press and variations in angles of working your chest such as incline and decline chest press.
