With my knees, I prefer lunges. They really wreck everything below the waist-line. And I'm too fat to do pull-ups, but I work the same muscles on the lat pull-down. And there's no way I'm going to do presses. I want my back and shoulders to be healthy for tennis, not wrecked.
If I did what you suggest, I would be at the gym maybe 3 times a week, with recovery periods in-between, and it would be too hard on certain joints. For me, that's not what works.
But yeah, I feel the T increases. Especially after my lower-body work. Big muscle groups being torn to shreds definitely spurs the T dumps.
