20-30 Minute jog every morning
5 minute skip rope every morning
15-30 minute speed bag exercise every morning

Bicep curls
Dumbell bench press
Calf raises, + reverse

Changed my routine abit. I hear squats can damage knees, so I switched to lunges, and my usual quad and ham lifts.

LOL lunges are even worse for the knees bro

When you go ATG (ass to grass) it takes less pressure off the knees and puts more on the hamstring

day 1 - bench press, deadlift, push press (low reps, lots of sets)
day 2 - off/cardio depending how I'm feeling
day 3 - squats, straight legged deadlift, calfs (various exercises)
day 4 - off/cardio/wakeboarding
day 5 - deadlifts, dips, bent over rows, chinups or pullups (weighted)
day 6- whatever I feel like I need to work on I'll actually do an isolation day
day 7- off/cardio/wakeboarding

sometimes I'll change things around a bit if I feel like it but for the most part I prefer to just stick with heavier compound lifts..

one thing I have never been able to get a good answer about is if push press is good for building the shoulder or not..
some ppl say its more of a power movement.. some ppl say it can work well as a mass builder too

push press is an excellent shoulder builder..it allows you to push more weight that the ordinary military press

Why is this even debatable?
Lunges is not as EFFECTIVE as squat.

Squatting is hard work. It can be uncomfortable, it requires full concentration on the job in hand. Squatting works nearly the whole body - calves, quads, hamstrings, lower back, glutes, abdominals, heart and lungs etc. Because of the degree of difficulty, squats also force your body to release higher amounts of important anabolic hormones, such as testosterone and growth hormone, thus resulting in total body muscle growth.
They don't call it the King of ALL exercise for nothing

I think lunges are good to get the separation but it certainly can not be compared to squats

i think the OP was asking why squats are better for his knees than lunges. Obviously squats are the better mass builder.

Exactly.

I just want to tone up my legs abit. Not looking to become a body builder lol. Like I said, i do weighted ham and quad raises. But squats and lunges work more of your lower body, as well as those 2 muscles, so I want to include them in my routine.

what is "tone up".. how the hell do you tone up your legs.. you can only get them bigger or drop the bf% for better definition.. seriously if you're worried about your knee buy some knee wraps..

curious have you ever squatted?

You just answered your own question...thats how you tone them, lose the bf%, and ya, of course build em up a little. all i was saying is that Im not planning on getting HUGE like a body builder. Just lose some fat, gain some muscle. thats the overall purpose of my whole routine.

and no i have squatted. ive done lunges before. like i said, i want to work an exercise into my routine that works alt of the lower body. but i dont want to fuck my knees up. based on all the comments here, your saying squats are better though... i guess ill switch to them.
Im just looking for a clear answer as to why they are better?

monday-chest and calves
tuesday-back, rear delts and traps
wed-legs
thursday-shoulders and traps
friday-arms

every 2nd friday i do deadlifts only and insert bis and tris somewhere throughout the week.

exercises vary.


squats and deadlifts are the kings of all exercises imo. Lunges can be good but should never be chosen to replace a squat movement.

Push presses are absolutely awesome aswell. I never feel a pump in my shoulders like i get with push press and it obviously works the core better than a seated movement.
