    practice launching your girlfriend off your chest after a long "workout" session.

    bonus points if she's sleeping...

    or... clap pushups seem to work well for me, except for when i tried a triple and face planted :(

    Paused Bench /w Chains or Bands.

    Use a barbell weighing around 40% of your 1RM. Use enough chains or bands to make the weight 70-80% of your 1RM at the top.

    Do triples.

    Lower to the chest. Pause for a full second. Fire it to lockout as quickly as you can. Pause at the top. Repeat.

    Basically it allows you to develop good explosive strength. The chains/bands are responsible for the load. The barbell weigth is fairly irrelevant. Hence the low % of your 1RM.

    And don't wear a condom, that will work on that explosiveness pretty quickly
