Wow, Stu, I'm impressed. If you other one is like this one (i.e. no significant asymmetry :lol: ), then I'm really amazed.

So...4" guns, eh? Who needs biceps when you have those, I suppose.

That's the one. It was doing a salute for the burial of a retired admiral. This weekend is the Battle of the Atlantic and it will take part. It normally berths at the other end of the base I'm on and in the summer it's moved down to the Museum. It's fun to watch it go by because it has no engines. It has to be moved by tugs.

I hope that the reason Hoose is asking about posting pictures is that he's about to post the picture he just showed me on Facebook.

I say any advice he gives for getting large bis and tris be taken very seriously. Remember, he's the one saying "squat and DL".

I'd go with that. I often think the best use for curls is to stick them at the end of the workout to make the trainee feel better about the workout. If you give them curls to do, you stop them from either curling on their rest days. Also, you make sure they won't secretly drop that whole silly "Squat, deadlift, and press" workout you gave them for that 10 sets of curls workout they heard about at the gym.

I bet if you tried handing out routines to new lifters and stuck curls at the end of some and said "No curls!" to the others, the first group would stick to the program better. :wink:

back on track: this might be an answer to hoosegow's post.
I don't think they've squatted to get that big, but YOU should still squat and deadlift.

Touche Wouter, touche.

I'd be willing to bet there were more compound lifts than curls, though.

Other than dumbbell hammer curls, I don't do much isolation biceps work. Once I became able to do chin-ups and dips for reps, my arms stopped being lagging bodyparts.
