I love making up exercises, almost as much as I enjoy being able to lay down while doing them. Introducing: The Lying Landmine Chest Press! This will smoke that upper portion of the pectoral, and is great for filling out the rest of your chest day.
___
This exercise, known as a unilateral movement, is similar to a single arm incline DB press, in that it isolates one pec while driving at an upward angle. Doing unilateral exercises not only gets a more unique stretch of a working muscle, but also works on the core due to the rest of the body having to work to keep from rotating toward the weighted side.
___
If you have a landmine attachment at your gym, this will be a bit easier to perform. If not, place a barbell in the corner of a squat rack with weights only on the side you'll be holding. Grab the end of the barbell while lying on your side, roll onto your back while also rolling onto your elbow/tricepto get in position (imagine doing a floor press), and drive your arm forward with your exhale. Inhale and slowly lower back into position without letting the elbow rest on the ground.
___
Simple as that! Now drop on the deck and flop like a fish! Yall got this!

Rough Monday? Grab your balls and fling 'em at the wall! Medicine balls, that is. 😁😣
_
Medicine balls are one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you can use in the gym. Just about every toss and slam variation you may encounter is great for strengthening the muscles of the "core" (internal/external obliques, rectus/transverse abdominis, erector spinae), while also helping to elevate the heart rate to get a good sweat going.
_
Here are a few of my favorites (with my made up names), in order:
-
Squat to high point toss: also targets legs, chest, upper back, and shoulders. Simply squat, then toss as you stand up!
-
Side toss: great for isolating the obliques. The further you twist, the more torque you put on the oblique muscle.
-
Chest pass: targets chest, back, and shoulders as well. The recoil off the wall forces you to "brace" your core as if you were about to be punched in the gut. The harder you pass, the better!
-
Overhead slam to overhead toss: hits just about everything. The slam acts as a crunch, the upward toss acts as a deadlift variation, and the heavy object repeatedly flying toward your skull will definitely get the heart rate up. 🤣
_
Hopefully your gym has a spongy medicine ball like this! A sand filled ball would work, but you obviously won't have the same rebounding effect. Now go chuck some balls! Y'all got this!

This how-to brought to you just in time for International Chest Day: the Flat Bench Press!
___
Every gym bro/broette's favorite exercise, the bench press is one of the best builders for the pectoralis major (think: boob/moob), while also targeting the anterior delt as well as all three heads of the tricep. Before you go slapping plates on, make sure to focus on a few cues before setting that new PR:
___
1) Retract those shoulder blades! Far too many people lie completely flat on the bench, allowing their shoulders to take the brunt of the impact, or at the very least, losing tension in the pecs rep to rep. Pull your shoulder blades back and together, and keep them there!
___
2) Don't flare your elbows! Your elbows should be pointed slightly downward, away from the bar, during the motion (think: 75 degree angle). If your elbows are parallel to the bar, you'll put more strain onto your shoulders than you will tension onto your chest muscle.
___
3) This is more of a note than a cue: you don't *have* to touch your chest! Touching your chest doesn't necessarily mean recruitment of more muscle fibers. Some people insist that you MUST touch your chest, but unless you're in a powerlifting competition, touching of the chest isn't necessary. If touching the chest provides a better overall stretch for you, then great! Keep doing it. But if touching the chest is too stressful for your shoulders, consider pausing the bar about 2 inches from your chest before pressing.
___
It's that simple! Now get under the bar and pump those pecs! Y'all got this!

Cannonball! No, I'm not diving in a body of water. I'm doing Cannonball Squats! This variation of a front squat is great way to target the outer sweep of the quads more directly than the traditional close stance squat, and using a dumbbell is a much more comfortable way of learning the proper mechanics of the front squat before trying out the barbell variation.
___
The primary difference between Cannonball Squats and a normal close stance is that the feet and thighs are held together during the cannonball variation. This puts a ton of load onto that outer sweep of the quad, leading to better definition of the front of the leg. Be sure while descending that your heels stay on the ground, with your knees staying in line with your toes. If this is a serious challenge for your mobility, it may be a sign you have tight hip flexors and/or hamstrings, and need to stretch!
___
Give it a shot and see what you think! Y'all got this!
