Building Gladiator Pectorals

Decline Pulley Hug

All beginners are advised to  start with this exercise. It is the only way for a weak person (male or female) to hit the lower-pec line, which will then quickly make itself apparent and improve overall chest appearance.

A Cure For Slow Growing Pecs

My pecs are slow to grow in spite of the fact that I do a lot of straight arm flyes every workout. I also do floor dips between benches to get a stretch (3 x 15) and I get a good pump.

Vince Gironda, I need an exercise that builds the whole pec, not just the bottom part, which always seems to happen when I do a lot of regular flat bench presses.
