    I like to use negative-only after I have plateaued on an exercise. The negative the part of the movement causes the muscle trauma (which can lead to supercompensation if proper rest, nutrition, etc. is applied).

    Each of my worksets form dumbell preacher curls are negative-only sets.

    Firstly i do 2 sets to failure...these are my 'warm-up sets' (tho not 'warm-up by the standard definition)

    Then i do 2 sets of negative-only work.

    I train by myself so i spot the working arm with the non-working arm.

    IMO this exercise works wonderfully.
