Pushups? Boring. Chinups? More like yawn-ups. Classic exercises like these are functional, build muscle, and accomplish at lot with simple movements. But they can do more—and can make you feel like a superhero—with simple tweaks that take them from regular exercises to extreme-ercises.

The following tips and exercise progressions from fitness experts will safely turn your chinups into core-blasting, body-control-testing single-arm chinups, your pushups into Rocky-esque one-arm versions and acrobatic handstand presses, your bench press into stress-blasting bench press throws, and more. You'll build a more complete, balanced body worthy of summer-blockbuster status.
