1. Chest: Gymnastics Flyes
“Gymnasts have tremendous pectoral development,” says Ferruggia, who suggests modifying the old-school dumbbell flye with gymnastics rings for a better chest workout.
Set up a barbell high in a power rack and loop the straps around it, letting them hang slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Grab them, keeping your body tense in a straight line, and lower your torso down by widening your arms as far as is comfortable. Reverse the motion until your arms are out in front of you. Perform two sets of as many reps as possible as the last chest exercise in your workout, resting two minutes between sets.Back to top
