Good stuff!

Wrist curls always destroyed my wrists, but i have bad wrists from years of kick boxing.

My forearms improved the most from ditching straps and gloves...Chalk only.

Farmers walks are great for hand strength. Those gripper things always make my hands cramp up so i don't use them anymore.

yeah i think you two are right,my wrists dont like them. so im gonna drop them and just stick with one arm reverse cable curls and 'pinwheel curls'.

i have had forearm and bicep insertion problems lately. cant do straight bar curls anymore...(fav bicep exercise) and forearms/bicep insertion at the elbow feel unstable when im doing db presses.

i gave up on straight bar curls for serious bicep work a while ago. periodically i try again, but it never works.

if you like the "feel" of it, do simultaneous DB curls with your palms facing up the entire time. i find it works far better.

My arms have always shaken like a mofo when i bench heavy, it looks scary on video, but i've done this for 10+ years and haven't hurt myself yet...lol

My elbows always feel unstable during heavy benching. the only thing that helped was HEAVY hammer curls, but they didn't help that much.

i don't train arms anymore and i can't tell much of a difference.

Magoo has a good idea, those DB curls with the palms up the entire time always fried my biceps. i have most of my trainers do these.

incline db press 3x7 57kg (deep and controlled...)
smith machine shoulder press 3x5-6 115kg (felt heavy...i done 130 kg for 5-6 reps at my strongest..so thats my goal to get back to that weight again)
skullcrushers 3x8 67kg (may have to switch to hammer grip db extensions instead....because elbows are starting to feel abit weird..)
chins 3x6 bw+30kg (dominated these)
db rows 3x8 63kg (very strict and controlled.....no coleman db rows  Cheesy )

duration: 65min

comments: incline db press is a great chest movement..only problem with dbs is progression=sometimes you have to make bigger jumps than you want because you have fixed weight dbs. the shoulder press felt heavy as shit, not happy with that. other than that it was an ok workout, weights are moving up at a steady pace, sometimes i have to hold myself back so i dont make too big weight increases.

skullcrushers screwed up my elbows for a while. i found the best replacement was incline close-grip bench.

well, it suits me..but maybe the routine looks a bit odd  Cheesy

as for shoulder press in standing calf machine...i simply use the standing calf raise machine ,grab the shoulder pads and press them up. i do these instead of standing barbell presses.

I like it, sometimes the "odd" things work really well.

Never seen anyone do that in all my years, i'm going to give it a try.

bench press 3x5 150kg (not benched in several months time....so have to work on technique)
incline db press 2x8 57kg
chins 3x5 bw+40kg (probably my fav exercise..always loved doing chins..specially with an underhand grip..gives the biceps a good workout too)
shoulder press in standing calf machine 3x6-7 110kg
db rows 3x8 67kg (pull towards the hip and really contract in the top position...slow and controlled)
close grip bench press 3x6 125kg

comment: good workout. took me about 75min.

been reading alot about the sheiko routines, but im not gonna make the newbie mistake and change routines all the time. so im gonna stick with what im doing for 2-3months..then ill probably try one of the sheiko routines (=powerlifting routine), just to try something different.

you should also convert to pounds like a NORMAL person, ya euro bastard.  Angry

excellent lifting though. i'm not sure if i've said this before, but i really had you pegged for a non-lifting troll initially, and i'm glad to find out just how wrong i was!

Awesome lifting, SB.  It'd be nice to see what you look like one of these days Cool  But no prob either way...I used to thrive on the thought that people on here thought I was some 150 lb twink Grin
