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.
Building Gladiator Pectorals
This is a very distinct exercise to add muscle mass in the pectoral muscle and was widely used by the former Mr. Olympia Larry Scott while training in Vince ‘s Gym.
This type of movement mainly works the chest, in a slightly different variation of other movements for the pectorals.
I’ve never understood why male bodybuilders want to build huge, bulbous chest muscles.
For those of you who are not familiar with this exercise I will explain it as Vince Gironda describes in his course “The Vince Gironda Workout Bulletin.”
Another Vince Gironda favorite was wide-grip neck presses.
Larry Scott Ring Flyes.
I always liked Larry Scott’s pectorals. They were not bulbous like so many guys today. How did he exercise his chest muscles?
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.
