"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I'm a fan of squeeze presses. Dips come in a close second.

I've never tried the squeeze press - thanks for the tip.

Interesting point, especially when much of what I've read within HIT states that variation is unnecessary.

Of course someone selling a set of machines or a routine is going to say that is all one ever needs.

For me a shoulder width "false / death" grip paused bench press produced best results, when i watch people bench, they almost always use a wide grip, elbows flaired. Along with the bench, overhead presses cover the upper pecs.

Funny you should say that about overhead presses. I recently did a workout where the only two upperbody exercises I did was weighted chins and overhead presses and my chest was quite sore the next day (along with a lot of other muscles too).

Yeap, chins and overheads stimulate the pecs too a large degree, and then some. Prob not the "best" pec exercises, but a good job none the less. The strongman / owner of a gym i go too never benches, flyes etc, and has a massive 60" chest, the combo of overhead presses (log or axle or Thomas inch DB or Viking press), heavy rows, deadlifts, loaded carries, tire flips, truck pulls etc seem to do the job.




I always thought that many of the old timers had relatively under developed pecs and put it down to a focus on overhead press with little if any horizontal pressing.


Which old timers ?
I was looking at photos of the new " Champs " in bb and I had always thought something was " off ". For instance look at Shwartzeneggar , he has a massive chest. A few others are Serge Nubret and Sergio.
Today's champions all seem to have relatively " small " pecs in comparison.

Performed correctly, the barbell bench press, is the best exercise for strength and muscular development of the chest muscles.
