Flyes using rings, TRX, or Blast Straps are highly effective, but you can make them even better by setting the rings further apart. This really scorches the pecs.

Tip: Cable Hip Belt Squats

Looks odd, but it's brutal on the quads due to the constant tension, even at the top of the rep.

Band-resisted-trap-bar-rows

Tip: Band-Resisted Trap Bar Rows
