How to do the Svend Chest Press  
I had never heard of the “svend chest press” when he mentioned it to me, however when he showed it to me I immediately recognized it as an isolation exercise. Supposedly Svend Karlsen who was 2001′s “World’s Strongest Man” coined the phrase and name for this chest exercise.
1.  Grab two plates and squeeze them together against your chest.  Hold your hands up in a praying position with your elbows naturally out to your side.
2. Rotate your hands so that you’re pointing away from you, and proceed to “press” the weight in front of you.
3. Pause for a minute and then return back to the starting position.  This is one rep.
