I was skimming through Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness august 2005 issue and found an article called Unique Exercises to Chisel Your Chest. (pg .70) written by Steve Downs, C.S.C.S. There are 3 unique chest exercises that I've never heard of. I was wondering if Bobo or others ever heard of the Purvis Press and Snyder Press? These look like some great exercises.
Purvis Press incorperates using ankle cuff attachments on the cable cross over pulleys. The bench is placed in the center of the pulley area. The ankle cuffs are attached to each foream just above the elbow. Then you have a partner hand you a pair of dumbells and then you preform dumbell bench presses.
The Synder press incorperates dumbell bench presses with palms facing each other. You start with the dumbells touching each other on your chest (palms facing each other) and you then press the dumbells up untill the elbows are extended. Throughout the exercise the edges of the weight plates touch each other. Take a short pause at the top of the lift.
