I recently rediscovered a great old-school exercise. I think the last time I saw it was in Bill Pearl’s “20 Months to a Championship Physique” about 10 years ago in IRON MAN. The movement is part flye, part pullover and all-pec stretch. It’s called around the worlds.
I credit Milos Sarcev for bringing these back, as he’s had Dennis Wolf, Hide Yamigishi, Silvio Samuel and others add them to their precontest programs. Around the worlds are not a mass builder—you can’t go heavy, and if you do, you risk serious injury. As a finisher, though, this will tie the pecs together nicely while stretching out the lats, delts and even triceps a bit.
