    This is a great one. I actually lean forward slightly to compensate for the angle of the Smith Machine, and I go up on my tiptoes (without surging with the ankles). I find the stretch and pinch better.

    I do several exercises that few people do that get me odd looks in the gym... or maybe it's just my funny lookin face that gets weird glances. Anyway...

    For triceps - JM Presses

    For Lats - bentarm closegrip decline pullovers

    - one arm rows holding a short barbell in the middle (extra demand on supporting muscles to keep bar balanced makes it a great exercise)

    For chest & serratus - straightarm widegrip pullovers

    For traps, core, legs - overhead squat

    For legs - bulgarian (single leg) squats

    For traps - overhead shrugs
    - high pulls
    - powercleans

    real heavy one arm dumbell snatch, for reps.....helps me break though my strength plataue's..........except for the bench.......lets say im feeling week in the shoulders and back, well i will come into my gym and do nothing but superset deadlift's with the db snatch or the bb snatch............like the video.....then when it gets to be too much for me to snatch, i clean and press it, when im too fucked to do that i start to clean it, and when i finaly fail at that........its upright rows from off the ground........then i stop, and do my deadlifts and repeat...until i cant do it anymore

    I see a lot of people do bar pulldowns but I like it better with a rope. I saw Phil Heath do it on his Olympia prep videos and thought it was the best thing to get that squeeze in the back.

    I dont know if it is the same but I do a shoulder exercise called iron crosses. a friend used to do kettelbell training, that is where he learned it. he passed that one on to me. how is your version done...im guessing holding yourself up with your arms parallel to the floor like they do in the rings? sounds painful!!

    CAble dips, hopefully your gym has the pulleys close apart about 6 feet like mine . Sit on a bench in between the handles lean forward like a dip, push handles down like a dip. Kills your chest

    Honestly - weighted pushups. They are seriously neglected, but are a great natural movements.

    I'll usually drink about 23 shots of Evan Williams on a friday night and then start to pick up random cars, break tree branches, and toss trash cans full of trash on my way to the bars. You would be surprised how sore you are in the morning not to mention the insane pump you get.

    Back- 1 arm t-bar rows. It's a lot like dumbell rows but works when the dumbells in the gym don't go up high enough. Use 25 or 35 pound plates for a good ROM.

    Trap Bar Rows- Just like a barbell rows, but the trap bar allows you a great ROM.

    Hamstrings- Sumo RDL. Hits the hamstrings harder than a typical RDL with less stress on the low back.

    Quads- Bulgarian Split Squats with added ROM. Putting the front leg on a step makes it harder and leads to greater flexibility.

    I really like to try new exercises so I do a bunch of different variations.
