View Full Version : Emphasizing the chest?

10-06-2008, 01:15 AM
Hey guys,

I train MMA 4-5 days a week - mitt work, sparring, rolling and basic wrestling-team style conditioning - and its been getting tough lately to make it to the gym for weight training. I still work hard at home though, but I think my chest is a weak point for me. What exercises can I do at home with what I've got to emphasize the chest a little more (or what do I need that can I get on the cheap)?

Equipment-wise I have a flat bench, two 20 pound dumbbells, a single dumbbell handle with 70 lbs of plates, a 25 lb medicine ball, a heavy bag, two semi-truck tires and a sledgehammer.

Thanks in advance!

I would do some banded push-ups. Basically use the bands on everything. The bands are cheap

I recomend the bands as well, and a chin up bar if you dont have one already. Where do you go about getting a semi truck tire ?
