    There is no comparable replacement, it is that vital a piece of equipment. I would look for a new gym that has a pec-deck!

    gym that doesnt have cables? Go with dumbbells or try this:

    take a plate in each hand while standing (either 5's or 10's)
    bring your arms together so that the plates are touching face to face your hands are palm to palm in front of your chest, arms fully extended but not locked (works best if the plates are the kind with the smooth side facing each other) you will get a good burn in your pecs. I usually do 4 sets, 6 reps, hold each one for 5 count then release.

    I caution on going to heavy as its easy to turn over your shoulder and put stress on it causing injury. Great exercise that is often overlooked. Will definately add to muscle endurance, great burnout at end. I do this frequently in place of flyes.

    I didn't really start using it until more recently. It will be one of my last exrecises. Love doing drop sets with it.

    Hai.

    The gym in my area doesn't have a preacher curl machine. What is a good replacement exercise for it?

    By the way, there is no comparable replacement, it is that vital a piece of equipment.
