    I think they are great for mass, especially walking lunges.

    Squats, hack squats, leg press then lunges. For me. But they are a good exercise to switch things up a bit.

    yea they are great. use them to finish a workout rather than start it. do all your heavy lifts first and then grab some dumbells/bar and lunge the length of the gym a few times

    I agree!!! Walking lunges are one of the best exercises as part of a mass program. Ask any Pro and they'll also agree.

    This is what I do. Hopefully you have stretched sufficiently as well or you may regret it heh heh.
