U're misunderstanding me. You use the curling rest, you lift right in front of it, then you put the weight back and move off to the side while u rest.

Then why use the curling rest at all? If you're going to have to put it somewhere while you rest whats the point.

And that still doesnt help the fact that you've made a squat rack (or bench press) with no bar in it in order to do your curls.

This is a curl bar rack. They also come with straight bars. It has nothing to do with the squat rack or a bench press at all.

Only half the gyms I've been to have those. And normally they only have the curling bar ones and not the straight bar ones.

OK to be fair, he was using a 45 lb olympic bar with (I wasn't staring so this is a guess) at least a 25 lb weight on each side.

He probably didn't have much options beyond the weird press-rack thing with a seat (he was standing) and maybe the floor (which is totally an option--who can't deadlift what they can curl?).

And our gym is seriously short on bars. I keep ending up with a chalked up, middle knurl bar for squats and it drives me nuts and gives me a bizzare C7 callus.

Try front squats. You'll leave traditional squats forever.

My suggestion, do heavy standing curls (without swinging of course) with the crooked bar first. Then do seated curls with the straight bar.

how is that 130kg? (~286 lbs?)

That looks like 225 lbs to me, which I can do.

ever notice the 20.4 kg on stamped on your 45lb. plate?

it appears they are 4x25kg plates, plus the bar, plus the two clamps at 2.5kg each = 130kg.


I've done 260lbs. and then I got sick for three weeks, missed the gym for a good month and dropped back down.

I just cooked a week's worth of food. I'll be back down below 200 again in a couple weeks.

When were you ever?

Your diet game is looking a little soft. Let's get you back on point.

Speaking of which...I'm bloating like crazy and have been sick for the last week. I was 211 (water weight) before my morning deload. Should be be back tp 201-199 in a week. Then probably another cut as I start conditioning training to prepare for my insertion into Obama's Great Muslim Brotherhood Army Militia of Holy Divinity.

I was sitting pretty at 198 this time last year but I'm much stronger at my current 211

So, almost done my first week of p90x3, the new p90x. A few things I've learned. While its possible for a man to get a good workout with resistance bands in the original p90x and in x3 they say you can, you cant, you need dumbbells. 2, if you are thinking of doing x3, you need to do at least run through all the original p90x videos and learn all the moves. Preferably you'd graduate p90x first, because **** all. I'm not as tired at the end of the workout but I'm toast some times during it. I dont know how anyone could do x3 without being used to how p90x workouts worked. The first ******* day would not have even been close to possible if I hadn't gained a crap load of balance from doing yoga, and I wouldnt have even tried yoga without p90x. I also like how x3 they just give up on making you follow a specific diet, its just eat healthy (your own personal definition of healthy) and manage the calorie intake for how you want to shape yourself. Otherwise, I like it so far, besides the new 1/2 hour long yoga. Its just not enough time, and its just not nearly as hard. I think I'll do the normal p90 yoga and cut out the yoga belly x part.

Oh and my magic bullet broke, so I'm drinking terrible lumpy warm gross protein drinks.

Went to the gym last night looking to take revenge on that 455lb deadlift I missed last month....and I got it. Went pretty smooth.

Also hit a 365lb squat this morning. That brings my current total up to 1070lbs between bench/squat/deadlift.

Now I'm gonna diet down back to 199lbs or lower. Currently sitting at 206-210lbs because I started eating to get stronger faster (**** works, lol).

Long term goal now is to have a 1150lb total at 190lbs or lower body weight.
