thanks, pushups are quite a favourite of mine, especially variations such as marine pushups (elbow to knee as you go down, alternate with each one), clapping pushups and elevated ones.
Also, just for laughs at rugby training we try to do them with someone sitting or standing on your back. (This is hard, but if they sit with their feet on the floor, they can control how much weight you take)
I find them great for my arms and shoulders, and some of the variations work the abs a bit as well, but for some reason it never puts any strain on my pecs. I might be doing them wrong, I'm not sure.

For pecs there's always the good ol' pushup. For added difficulty you can elevate your legs and/or wear a backpack with some weight in it.

I keep fit (insofar as I'm fit anyway) by lifting weights and playing sports like racketball.

Hi. Just a quick question.
I prefer to work out at home or outdoors, I've never been a fan of gyms. Most of the stuff I do involves no equipment. This is great, but I haven't been able to think of any simple exercises to improve my pecs (useful because I play a lot of rugby). I'd be grateful for any suggestions on this, or any other exercises which can be done without gym facilities.
Also, what does everyone else think on the idea of exercising in general: Do you prefer to keep fit by playing sports, using gyms, keeping active outdoors or just working out by yourself?

I was finally able to do a standing ab wheel rollout. My back nearly broke.
