Tag Archives: Barbell Cheat Curl

Back, Biceps, Forearms

10 sets x 3 reps wide grip hammer chins using 22.5 lbs attached to my waist, followed by 10 sets x 7 reps barbell pullover, 10 sets x 7 reps cheat curl, 5 sets x 30 reps seated wrist curls, and 5 sets x 10 reps reverse barbell curl.

The chins are easier then when I first started and will be using a 45 lbs plate again very soon without difficulty. Also, once I start using a 25 lbs plate the weight hangs much better of the belt and the plate has enough surface areas to no longer dig into my body.

I just incorporate the barbell pullover into my program and started with 95 lbs. This is such light weight for me but I could feel a small pull in my left elbow so I am going to take my time and work up in weight slowly. Last time I stopped around 155 lbs fore sets of 5 reps but was afraid of hitting my head as I don’t have a spotter. I have never had an accident in this exercise but similar to the skull crushes it is an exercise you don’t want to ever goof on.

I used 105 lbs in the barbell curl and suppose I will keep increasing weight.

I am using 110 lbs in the seated writs curl and finding it easy. The muscle soreness I experience each time I perform this exercise is less and less. I might have to go really heavy or super high reps.

For the reverse wrist curl I used 50 lbs and also make sure I use chalk so my grip doesn’t break. This is a baby weight for me as I will be about to reverse curl 100 lbs plus for sets and reps.

Comments:

* My grip broke. I am not sure why I had the grip strength to do this my last workout but today I seamed to lack the grip strength. The only difference is that I did a few triples on some of my warm-up sets. As a result I decided to drop the weight down and do some reps.

Comments:

* I failed on the 2nd rep of the first set and the third rep of the fifth set however, I was still able to manage to do three reps on each set. I believe my focus was off today and the power clean is definitely a movement you can’t perform while you are day dreaming.
