Both hands at once, like with a cross-over set-up?


One arm at a time.

They are sloppy reps. And I'm not lean but...

My arms have got to be 18" or so by now, maybe more. I don't know. I'm afraid to measure, because I don't want to be disappointed. ;) I'm all tricep anyway. I'll see if I can get a picture up soon.

I have the XXXL elbow sleeves from efts and they aren't tight enough where I have to pull them on and off between sets, but I'm getting there.

I couldn't even get the XXL's on right now if I tried.

I know exactly what you mean. I'm pretty sure somewhere in my log you'll find me saying the same thing about DeFranco's. I walked into a room of guys who warmed up with weights well above my 1RM, who could smoke me sprinting, who could jump higher and everything else you could imagine. How could I not get stronger?

The expectation of excellence and a constant reminder of where you could be really does push you. Even if they don't actually try to compete with you, it doesn't matter, you have something to live up to.

It is a close grip bench press.

You do it in the smith, and hang your ass off the end of the bench. When you are pressing the bar up, you need to also press the bar towards your feet.

I got it from the DC (doggcrapp) guys over on intense muscle.

People seem to love it, so I figured I'll give it a try.

Does this reflect your approach to accountancy as well? "Yes, Mr. Smith, I think your taxes for this year come to 10 thousand. I'm pretty sure. Or there abouts." :lol:

haha.

That is why we set materiality levels in audits. Appears reasonable is my favorite thing to say.

Taxes... depends on the client. Some are to the penny, some... Not so much.

lol

I had a patient in Washington who was an accountant in the planning department at Boeing. Apparently, in planning you can round off. At Boeing they round off to the nearest million. When they said "120" they were talking about $120,000,000! I would think it would be hard to transition to the real world after work. When the guy at the window at McDonalds says "That'll be one-ninety-eight" you'd say, "gee, I don't carry that kind of money with me."

nyg.....I'm looking to get some elbow sleeves....elbow pain is starting again. I don't feel like digging through a ton of threads, and I remember you posting something about sizing. Is the xxl good for a 16" arm? EFS. And you're using the heavy duty, not the super heavy duty right?

And your pic looks good man....definitely putting on some size! :thumbright:

Thanks man, that pic is 10 months old though, and I'm a bit bigger and a bit leaner now too.

The XXL's should be fine for you. But I blew up and out of them quick. Thing is the XXXL's will be too large for you for about another inch or so. You might have to pull the XXL's on and off between sets, which is annoying, but the XXXL's will be too big until you get close to 17"

I'm hoping to outgrow my XXXL's this year. :rr:

But who knows.

And yeah, the regular duty, NOT the super thick kinds. Also, drop skull crushers if your doing them. They are responsible for 79.65% of my pain.

Thanks for the info. And I'm not doing skullcrushers.....I did a couple sets about a year ago and that was all it took. Unreal elbow pain...instantly. I'm going to play with CGBP a little, but with my shoulder I'm not getting crazy with it yet. And I need a new bench....I have an old one and the supports are close together.
