Go to this web site exrx
Click on the muscle you want to work or the exercise you are thinking of doing
and you should see a short clip of how that exercise is performed.

No one can tell you all that will or will not work for you, but this site should be a great starting point.
Also do a search for the pumping station for more info and exercises.

Chest-any pressing movement, work them equally (top, middle, bottom)
Back-Deadlift, any rowing movement. Bent over rows, tbar rows. Good for lat width, in my experience, are wide grip pull ups and lat pulldowns while keeping the torso straight, pulling right under the chin
Traps-shrugs of all types. Barbell in front, behind...dumbell to front, back, side etc
Calves-seated and standing calf raises along with seated on the leg press
Biceps-standing curls with the EZ curl bar...with the curve facing up rather than down has really helped lately
Triceps- Dips, Close grip bp, skullcrushers
Legs-Squats, leg press
Shoulders- any press upward. Db, barbell..I also like upright rows
Forearms-Heavy grip work
Hamstrings-Stiff leg deadlifts

for back, i like doing multiple variations of lat pull downs and dumbell rows. when doing any of these exercises i try to use my back only, and not my biceps at all. also, for the rows, its good to use not only a neutral grip, but also a palms forward grip for variation. another variation of dumbell rows that boxers do to significantly increase punching power is to hold the weight in one hand, and turn your body so that it is parallel to the floor. then snap the weight back as hard as you can, being sure to twist your body. for traps, i like doing one handed cable shrugs, and straight arm rows with either a dumbell, or on the seated row machine. for delts, ive gotten good results doing incline bench with the bench almost straight up, and reverse grip military press. on the military press i make sure to bring the bar down as far as possible, and i try to concentrate on using only my delts, and not my triceps. i also like doing lateral raises on an incline bench, and straight arm kickbacks for rear delts. another exercise for shoulders that most people dont do is to hold a 5 or 10 pound dumbell in each hand, and quickly raise and lower the weight over a very short distance, as in an inch or two. do this at every possible angle you can think of. this sounds really random, but its used by kick boxers for increasing punching power. for chest i like doing cable flys for sets of 6-8, starting with the first rep targeting the lewer pecs, then doing the second rep targeting a little higher, and so on, so that the last rep is targeting the upper chest. for triceps il do close grip bench press with my elbows in as close to my body as i can, dips, incline tricep extensions, and cable extensions with alternating grip. with triceps i really try to tear it up until i can bearly do anymore weight. for biceps, il do regualr, hammer and reverse grip incline dumbell curls, and upper cable curls. for forearms il do wrist curls, reverse wrist curls, and on the seated row machine, il do wrist curls with a straight bar, making sure to start the movement with the very tips of my fingers, such that it is more of a total hand curl.
