You can get a lot accomplished at home with weight training with a set of weights.  I am going to give you some examples of pec exercises that are very effective. 

The first is a simple push-ups.  Keep your form tight, your abs engaged.  It’s better to not go down as far, and have better form.  If you are more advanced, try push-ups on a stability ball. 

Another standard pectoral exercise is a chest press.  This can be done with your shoulders on a stability ball, or a bench.  Your 90 degree bent arms should be down parallel to your ears, and then push straight up.  Then return to the original position.  Make sure that you work as hard on the way down as the way up.

We’ve talked about proper form for the dumbbell chest flye.  Keep the shape rounded (like hug-a-tree).  Don’t go down further than parallel with your shoulder.  Again, make sure that you don’t ‘drop’ the weight.  If the movements are too fast, it can put a strain on your rotator cuff.  Those injuries can take a long time to repair itself. 

A standing chest press with a tube securely tied around a very stable pole, or if your tubes have a toggle on it, you can secure it in a door frame. 

You don’t need to belong to a gym to exercise.  You can do weight bearing exercises with a little expense. Go to a used equiptment store.  That is where I bought my Universal gym for $500.  You can get barbells for a lot less than a sporting goods store.


 You just need some dedication and drive to wake up and do it.  You’re doing exercise for you, mentally and physically.  I think your worth it!
