Triceps Dips vs. Lunges

We all have exercises we love and exercises we work hard to avoid. I have heard complaints about both triceps and lunges. These two exercises are workout staples for me. Each exercise has so many variations and you can make them both walk.

Actually crab walks and walking lunges sound like a great pair of full body exercises, and I think I will do them at my next workout. So obviously, I love them both. In the battle for your heart, which exercise do you love more?

Being a guy, I tend to have a fitter lower section so leg exercises feel like waste of time. Most of my leg work comes from running, dancing, and other cardio activities.

For tricep dips I just use a sturdy chair and the height works out fine.

Tricep dips! I have a spoon body shape so I can't do lunges without jeopardizing my body shape. Tricep dips are fun. :D

I love lunges, but hate triceps dips, my elbows make this awkward creaking and cracking sound, so I suspect that dips are not for me.

I have no problem with my triceps... but I always struggle with form when it comes to the lunges. I always feel like I'm going to fall over.

I hate lunges, but I do them anyway. Tricep dips are awkward! I've tried different heights, I just can't seem to get into a comfortable position.

I despise lunges, but I do them anyway because they are good. I love tricep dips! In general, I actually prefer upper body exercises, but I do lower body anyway just to keep everything balanced out.

ohhhh I hate lunges. They just kill me. I have really bad ankles and not so great balance so I always feel like I'm going to kill myself!

I find triceps dips awkward, but I could do lunges all day.

I find tricep dips a little hard to do because I can never find a surface of the right height
