    This isn't secret but unique. My gym has a reverse hyperextension machine that powerlifters often use. you can do one arm rows on it very similar to one arm dumbbell rows. I got the idea after watching battle for the olympia 2003 where melvin anthony uses hammer strength leg press machine for rows. The reverse hyper works pretty well for the one arm rows

    It's not secret just forgotten but I like to do Spider Curls while sitting reverse on an incline bench. Basically the bench will support your weight but lets you dangle your arms straight down, the angle also helps to prevent any swinging motion in the upper body/arms. I got these from a Charles Glass workout clip, they used a barbell I prefer Dumbells.

    An exercise for the bicpes and brachialis that not many people seem to do is lying face down on the floor ion front of a low cable attachmentwith the upperarms alongside the the head. Then do behind the head cable curls. Having the arms braced on the floor does not allow them to move forward as is usually done when doing the same exercise on a lat pulldown machine.

    Forearms:
    Lay crossways across a regular flat dumbbell bench face down with your chest and face hanging over the bench. Your forearms should hang over the other side of the bench. Your hands and about three inches or so of your forearms should be hanging off of the bench with dumbbells in your hand. Then do wrist curls. They are similar to standing behind the back wrist curls but are much stricter. With your forearms braced on the bench pad it is more strict. Takes a little while to get used to but works well try it and let me know how it works.

    OK, most of us have at least one exercise that we swear by that few others seem to do, or at least a twist on on of the usual exercise. So post up yours, and why you do it.

    Mine is incline bench french presses for triceps, mainly because it gives a great stretch and seems to add thickness to the triceps when viewed from the back.
