Oops, and also without the push ups and squat clean.

Doug, have you ever tried man-makers? they are pretty awesome, and add a couple extra components to what you're already doing. If you like these, I think you'll like them.

start light -- they are SNEAKY EVIL.
Try it with 20# DBs to start.
When those are no longer a challenge work your way up the rack.
