As a young up-and-coming personal trainer, I was fascinated with the feats of strength the old time strongmen were famous for.
Stuff like tearing phonebooks, breaking chains, and hoisting preposterous poundages...
But my favorite feat was steel bending.
Once I ordered a steel bending practice set from Iron Mind magazine, I was hooked:
The feeling of solid steel slowly bending under my relentless effort was a total thrill.
I tapped into higher levels of strength and focus... and the results showed.
I knew I had to use this technique with my clients... but how?
Steel bending is incredibly tough on the hands and just not practical for most people.
The answer came a few years later in the form of a decidedly throw-back exercise gadget.
While studying the work of a modern French strongman, I discovered how a simple spring-loaded stick could mimic the steel bending pattern.
The chest, shoulders, and arms were used to bend the stick (hence the term "pec stick"), creating a pump-inducing squeeze.
Best of all?
Totally repeatable, user friendly, and FUN.
This was the answer I'd been searching for.
I snagged a stick off Amazon and immediately found great use for it in both my own and my clients' training.
And now, after 5 years of practice and experimentation, I'm putting all the best pec stick exercises, challenges, and programming concepts in one place...

"I’m bench pressing for the first time in a very long time.
The pain I had before has really minimized.
My forearms and chest get toasted for sure.
I am traveling this week for work and I plan on bringing the stick with me in my suitcase."
-- Jeff, kettlebell instructor
"After 2 weeks, my max-rep push-ups have gone from 15 to 19!"
"I religiously adhered to the challenge for 30 days and in that time I added 7.5kg to my bench press comfortably, was able to PR on a 32kg strict press and got super close to 36kg.
I'm curious to see what other PRs are down the road.."
-- Maggie, powerlifter & strength coach
-- Molly, strength coach
"I completed the month-long pec stick beta challenge.
Lots of fun with a unique stimulus. All I did that month was the pec stick and some deadlifts.
No dips, pushups, pull-ups, etc.
Forearms firmer with more muscle development - especially the brachioradialis.
Biceps, pecs, deltoids, even abs all firmer with a bit more muscle in the delts.
Tested push-ups - 6 more.
Pull-ups - 2 more.
This may not look good on paper, but I took it to mean that without performing them for a month, I was able to maintain baseline numbers and even add some reps.
Overall, the stick is definitely something to keep in the training arsenal."
"The pec stick fills a crucial role in training - working the chest without the need to lie down or have a big cable stack."
-- Andy, strength coach
"It may look weird, but damn it's fun and I'm already noticing a fuller chest and stronger forearms."
