So, combine pain and apparent pussification, and you have an exercise that few people want to do. These people are wrong. Lunges are great for building leg strength and mass. Of course, when you introduce these into the strength training world, the first thing you’ll do is add a plate to whatever weight the “regular people” are using. This usually results in you doing a really bad genuflect, followed by a rounded-back get-up. Awful. Take big strides, maintain an upright torso and do them right.

The big question here is how much weight to use for the “down” sets of 10 reps. The first time you try this, go light. Very light. Go with something you know will be easy – maybe around 30-40% of your max. From there, you can work with 50-60%, or whatever you want. You don’t have to progress on these down sets, although you don’t have to use the same weight, either. Although you can. It simply doesn’t matter! Just do 5 sets of 10 reps and build some muscle. Since you’re already warmed up, you can pyramid down here.

Pushups Though not as manly as the dip, the pushup still has its place in training. One drawback, however, is that pushups are hard to load. Wearing a weight vest is probably the easiest solution to this problem. If you don’t have a weight vest – and most of you probably don’t – there are a few options you can try. First, simply do a ton of reps. Next, use rings (or EFS Blast Straps) to make the movement more difficult. You can also use chains or bands across your back to add resistance. Blast Strap pushups (with bands) were a staple in my bench routine when I first began powerlifting.
