Assisted Negatives                   

These are a favorite of Lee Priests, which would explain the absolutely insane mass that he has acquired on his quadriceps!  Simply lift a weight and have your partner apply pressure on the negative portion of the rep.  You need to perform these on machines and or exercises that don't risk trapping you under the weight.  For example I would not recommend this on a bench press, but I would recommend them on pull-ups and barbell curls.  Machines are the safest way to go, so keep that in mind.  If performing leg extensions you would lift the weight concentrically by yourself, and then on the eccentric portion have your partner apply as much pressure as you can handle, while fighting the negative on the way down! This takes advantage of the fact that you can lift more weight on the negative portion of a rep then the positive.
