          damned if that so very true. extra/sufficient sleep will help you grow better than any secret exercise. but if youre looking to specialize, then try these much lesser known and/or used movements for new soreness and size.


          back - cobras(google for technique - it will be more than worth your efforts.

          chest - leaning forward dips(no lockout)

          traps - lie down on a low pulley cable row with a straight bar handle, arms locked, and slowly shrug the stack to your ears...as you release it back, let it really stretch out the fascia - insane deep negatives will yield amazing results and don't forget to vary your hand positions. excellent finisher for traps.

          side delts - lie on an incline bench sideways, and grab a light enough dumbell to really rep out for an unreal burn. the tension is extended on these higher up in the arc than the traditional standing variation. theyre wicked if you focus on the task at hand.

          Tri's - California presses. Using a false shoulder-width grip(or slightly closer), press a heavily loaded barbell to lockout(make sure to squeeze at this point furiously) and only lower the barbell to the top of your head, no deeper. These should be maxed out on, and someprefer to do them in a power rack on the pins to complete muscular failure. they will blow the back of your arms up.

          forearms/bis - underhand pull-ups. Using a true grip thats so close your hands are almost touching. focus on pulling with your arms. I knew a guy who only did these for his bi's and tie-ins, and he had serious pipes.

          legs - walking lunges have never failed me as an auxillary go-to movement. they won't fail you either provided your man enough to gut them out.

              Bradford Press:

              Press a BB to the top of the head only, and then lower it behind the neck,then back to the front, just clearing the top of the head,then back to the back of the neck, and so on.

              The constant tension fron not locking out is awesone.

              I usually Super-Set laterals with these, doing the laterals first to pre-exhaust the delts.......killer combo.

              Standing or seated, Bradford Presses rock!!

              I have yet to see anyone with stubborn delts fail to respond to this Super-Set.

                No secrets but Nautilus Super Pullovers. Great for the lats. If your gym has one give it a try.

                  Incline bench dumbbell rows and barbell rows Using the trap bar allows for a greater contraction since the regular bar hits the bench. I found these two exercises to help increase strength with regular dumbbell and barbell rows. The relative inability of cheating and focusing on pulling the dumbbells or bar up as high as possible strengthens the contracted part of the movement which transfered to greater weight on regular dumbbell and barbell rows since the limiting part of the range of motion is the very top as its being pulled into the stomach

                    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.

                                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?
