I did reverse spider curls as well as a pronated hammer curl. I have a calve and forearm day as part of my split as well.

I've always tried several ways but never found which one is best...anyone? Bueller?

I approach any shoulder exercise whether it be press or raise/lateral with a parallel grip if using a barbell. It's been shown to the safest and most stable position to be in, and actually sets you up best for injury prevention as you are at your strongest.

And where you are at your strongest.....that's where you can recruit the mist fibers!

If you study the way muscle groups work, it's typically for moving along a certain plane of motion. I've never been a big believer in hand placement affecting certain "areas" better except for compound muscle groups.....especially something like back.

Of course small tweaks in grip position will stress certain areas slightly more.....I feel genetics still dictate muscle shape.

No way I can effect any muscles shape by steady application of fat to it
