    I made a slight variation that seemed to help my front squat a lil bit, recently. Cross grip like normal, but instead of laying hands across bar to the neck, I make a fist and grip around the bar,...

    Not commonly seen, but when I do dumbbell skullcrushers on incline or especially decline - I find less elbow issues arise. I find that heavier weights on dumbbells when hitting triceps tends to...

    I like that it(the floor) allows a safe way to get my chest work in, without worrying about injuring my shoulders. No sweat if I have to drop the bar either, long as the bar's elevated enough off the...

    I love Leroy Colbert! Used his routine for awhile and it was as tough as it was beneficial. Only thing I didn't like about it was there was nothing for hamstrings, glutes, forearms, or abs. Great...

    Standing landmine press might be fun to try(if resources are available for these), chest dips also great but watch the range of motion to protect those shoulders.

    If able to do any kind of chest press, might want to give reverse grip a try. It has great involvement of the upper pec area - more so than incline, reportedly.

    I find failure pretty effective, although I don't do just one set of it. I prefer 1 or 2 supersets to failure per muscle group(so 2-4 sets of total volume each), a compound followed by an isolation....

    Only thing I ever do specifically for biceps is either chin ups or underhand bent rows; and either standing or seated zottman curls. They're not where I want yet, but they're showing the most for me...

    I used them briefly at first, but I never liked training splits much, personally. Less volume, less flexible schedule, less frequency, too easy to develop/worsen imbalances because something comes up...

    If i'm trying to isolate chest, usually I use either a dumbbell fly or around the world after the compound I do before it.

    If you're starting out, stick to a few sets each of the basics for awhile.. Benchpress, bent row, squat, deadlift, dips, pullups, overhead press(or clean & press if you want more out of this...

    I've never heard of a donkey delt raise either. At first I assumed you meant donkey calf raises, but i'd be curious to try or at least see the delt variant. I'm always open to adding/substituting in...

    Floor pressing? Such a wonderful exercise, lil harder getting into with dumbbells but it makes for a worry free set. I used to do them a lot before I had the luxury of squat stands/bench to help out....

    I can't think of a single muscle that takes an entire week to recover, so it's a waste of your time and their potential to only hit them once a week, if you ask me.

    Muscles don't develop if they're being constantly used, they need time to recover and that does not happen overnight. Enjoy your days off, do something else fun or something you've been meaning to...

    You could try supplementing a push press in sometimes, and see how you respond to those. I always found something explosive usually helps with numbers on something strict. Worth a shot.
