* I was a little tired today so I shortened the length of my workout which allowed me a chance to try a barbell cheat curl. My 190 lbs failed attempt is not a total failure. I could only bring the weight about half way up and made two attempts. I felt a huge burn in my biceps after setting the weight down. Sure I am using my legs and back to help me drive the weight up but my biceps still take an ass kicking just the same. All I know is that curling 135 lbs is now a joke to me and I do believe that once I can cheat curl 225 lbs my arms for sure will be bigger.
I have also noticed that I can develop pulling strength much faster than pushing strength for some reason. So instead of worrying about the bench press and overhead press I am going to focus on pulling power. My short term goal is to barbell row and RDL over 400 lbs for sets and reps.
