I'm looking for a new and unique way to train my pecs. My gym has tons of equipment available, but I feel like I've done them all to death! Any ideas?
There is nothing worse than being bored at the gym (except perhaps being bored in the bedroom)! So you say you've used every piece of equipment in your gym? I bet there is one thing you haven't tried...the SWISS BALL! Try an entire chest workout using basic exercises, but all done on a swiss ball. This will challenge your mind, muscles, and nervous system with a completely unique stimulus. Be prepared, however, as swiss ball training can be quite exhausting! It will tax not only your chest, but also your lower back, hips, butt, and abdominals as well. If you have no experience with a swiss ball you may want to buy a book or video on their proper use. Or, you can ask someone who has experience to teach you correct technique. Here is your routine:
1- swiss ball dumbell press...2 x 6-8
2- swiss ball incline flye (hips low to make incline angle)...2 x 8-10
3- swiss ball dumbell pullover...2 x 10-12
4- swiss ball pushup (feet on ball)...2 x failure
