This is one of those exercises that you will see older and more experienced guys do. They have run the the gamut of exercises throughout the years and devised ingenious ways to keep their muscles on their toes. Changing-up keeps your muscles growing and this exercise is certainly an exercise that you can do once your chest workout gets stale and boring.

One thing to keep in mind is that you will need to have a spotter for this exercise. There is no way that you can do this exercise without having someone pick up the barbell off the floor and place it in your hands. Once your done, you will again pass the barbell into the hands of your spotter so that he can place back onto the floor again.
