Alright, I just noticved this post got terribly long while I was typing- teach me to look at the screen and not the keyboard. Skip to last line for the short story. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might go about increasing the size of my pectorals without one of them what're they called, butterfly-something-things. I'm not a member of any health club, and don't really think I need to; I'm quite happy with my body apart from my utter lack of pecs (Well that, and REALLY skinny wrists - feel free to give suggestions about them too...). I have decent shoulders and arms and a 5-pack, (Don't feel like giving up all my favourite foods just to put a crease into that last small bulge on my belly ) but I just can't seem to do anything about the pecs, which would really make the difference in how I look at the beach. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've tried doing push-ups in every imaginable way, but it seems can never get to the pecs. All the equipment I have at home at the moment is one really old full metal ~7kg dumbbell that's being used as decoration. Been thinking about buying a barbell and a bench to do presses on, but I wanted to see if anyone has any cheaper/smaller solutions? I'm not looking for body-builder dimensions here, I just want to look a bit healthier. My current workout schedule is as such: - I sporadically (but relatively often 1-6 times a week, on average maybe twice a week) run a few laps around the woods, or ski around the lake in the winter. - I used to do 30 pushups a day just because I felt guilty if I didn't do anything with my arms all day, but now I do a 4 sets of 30 on a given day every week instead, if only to maintain the little musculature I have. - situps, "every now and then," until I get bored and/or tired. It's no body-builders schedule (if it can be called that), but it keeps me from going terribly out of shape, which is all I need. Now I'm just looking for something to add that could help me beef up my pecs a little bit. SHORT STORY: I need help beefing up my pecs, without getting a gym membership if possible.
