Peck Deck

I don’t have a peck deck machine available for the growth surge work out. Anyone have a good substitute ? I use my home gym and a community center gym. Not much in machines, just lots of iron.


Your question is relatively easy to answer. Given that you have ample access to free-weights, try dumbell fly’s. Done with proper form, ie. lay flat or inclined arms almost locked out, you should expect reasonable results above and beyond what the measly pec-deck provides.

Dumbbell Flyes

A cable crossover machine is another option… set up a bench in the middle and lock the pulleys about chest height. Every gym I’ve ever been in has one of those.

DB Flyes, It’s the loading of the Growth Surge program thats important, not so much the exercise…don’t sweat the pec deck.
