If you're looking for variety it can be a lot of fun to use variations of the same stuff. Zercher squats or front squats can be a lot of fun, and deadlifts from a deficit or heavy rackpulls are both really different experiences from the standard. Different soreness and intensities. Pushpressing is a lot of fun for a heavy overhead lift, and dumbbells make it even more awkward (strongman style). I don't think you really build the muscle as well w/ pushpressing since the triceps are only finishing, but it can make you feel pretty macho w/ that much weight overhead and it is a good workout for the core as long as your form is safe.
Thanks for the great ideas guys!! I will be including Arnold presses, rack pulls, and push presses
Much needed day off today. Pretty sore still. I'm starting some new exercises starting tomorrow. Can't wait to try it out!!
