Use the dumbbell preacher curl to overload your brachialis, brachioradialis and biceps brachii (i.e. your elbow flexors).
Use the dumbbell box squat to eliminate the stretch reflex, making the exercise more difficult and allowing you to overload your muscles with less weight.
Learn how to perform the dumbbell wide-grip upright row effectively and safely, without increased risk of shoulder impingement.
