    I like doing hanging Windshield wipers. Some people say it's an ego exercise, but it took me a long time and a lot of russian twists to be able to do it and nothing makes my abs feel like they're on fire like a few sets of that. I feel that it's mostly responsible for carving out my obliques.

    Threads like this one make this one of the Best Forums on the web period. I'm a member at many other forums, but 90% of the time I spend cutting through Bullshit threads. At least here beside Adonis and a few others we are at least on a somewhat intelligent playing field regarding bodybuilding.

    I hear ya on both of those. Rack Deads for pulling some of the lift off the legs to hit the back harder. And someone showed me Incline Extensions at the Powerhouse in Detroit... haven't gone back to doing them on a flat bench since... I prefer the stretch and position on the incline bench.

    Dumbell Squats - what is the exact positioning of the dumbells while descending...I squat powerlifting style with my feet spread wide so I can keep my balance and get ass to ankle...any help appreciated and thanks for the reminder of this exercise..

    Natural glute ham raise? I do straight leg dead lifts and machines..sorry to be a dumass, but can you explain this exercise...???

    I'll google Gironda press...is this Vince from Oz Gironda??


    Danok,

    DB Squats I try and hold the DB vertically against my abdomen/lower chest. I do these with my heels on 10 lb plates. I love em cause it barely hits my lower back and you feel it all in your quads. Often times I'll make my final set a drop set

    glute ham raise - Layne put that one up, Layne is the man at this exercise. I do 4-6 good reps with no additional weight and cheat to get 8 reps. I've yet to get to the point where I'm adding weight, someday. I've been doing them for 2 years on and off.

    Gironda Press - tough to explain, I've found it takes a lot of weight off the front delts. When i bench press, it's almost all front delts from halfway to the down position, so I use the gironda press, you can't do nearly as much weight but the chest ROM is great

    One last exercise for today. This one if for shoulders. It is a single arm front cable raise. Take an adjustable incline bench and set the angle somewhere between 30 and 70 degrees. Use a d-handle or rope on a low cable pulley. You lay face down on the incline bench facing away from the low cable pulley. When doing the exercise with your right arm, you need to set the bench off to the left of the low pulley so your right shoulder, arm elbow, hand , and low pulley are all in one straight line with each other. In the beginning of exercise, your arm should be right along side your body, then you do the front raise with the arm so the arm is along side your head. Pretty strict way to do this exercise and it burns pretty well. Good for the rotator cuff too. Weight needs to be pretty light.
    Similarly I will lay on my back with my feet against the low cable machine. Front raises with both arms, using the rope grip. Great for really isolating the front delt.

    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.
    Yeah...I find it really works the top portion of the tricep

    Not so much as secret, as you just don't see people doing them a lot.

    Incline curls and the tricep ext/close grip bench combo with the e-z bar.

    The best exercises are the forgotten ones that deliver results. No one like free weight flyes, straight bar curls.etc

    another challenging exercise that would be impressive is the exact opposite of the glute ham raise. I dont know if any of you ever saw a sissy squat machine. But if you have the normal way is to squat down with both hip and knee flexion and extension. But the harder way would be to do no hip flexion and extension during the movement; only knee flexion and extension. know what I mean?
