This is the most weight I have curled since I was in college. The best I ever did was 225 x 3. Today I got 225 x 1, albeit cheating, but not too horribly. Heck, cheat or not, that is the most I have done in a long time.

Hey, I admit to cheating the rep, and I am lucky enough that the wife took the pic in full lean mode, but give it a try yourself, as much cheating as you wish, and then let me know;) .


The Barbarians were names David and Peter Paul.

Great weight! how about taking a video of the lift? that would be cooool

I have the digital camera, which I bought to post pics on this site, but I don't have a video camera. Actually, I do think I remember reading that my camera can shoot movie type things for 20 seconds or something. I'll take a look at it.

Oh, and thanks.

Kimpy, why do you think you would get banned? Are you serious? Think of all the things people have said about me and not gotten banned, that would certainly not even count.

I think the barbarian bros' 'official' style was flannel shirts with the arms ripped off, jean shorts (also cutoffs) and construction boots with wool socks, IIRC

Actually, in all of the pics I have of them in the gym, they wore full jeans and flannel shirts, in combination with the construction boots, of course. I actually have a picture of one of them squatting 5 plates with full jeans on.

hadn't actually seen gym pics; most of what I've seen were publicity pics . . .

that's pretty amazing to be squatting in full jeans... I betcha they ripped the seats out of a lot of jeans when they did that; I squat in umbro soccer shorts sometimes and tore the seam of one pair right thru the ass from the strain of squatting... material wasn't flexible enough. LOL!

that is awesome, when you did the 3 reps, did you do it with a straight back.

What can you curl with one hand

Thats just awesome.

nice curl but you look far to lean! I recommend upping your twinkie consumption to two boxes and throw in another box of dingdongs for good measure

How come your hands are so far apart?

Savannah

Ouch! You are confusing me with Pietro (the twinkie thing). My thing is to just consume a lot of everything!

That is just the way I have always curled. It has always been the most comfortable hand position for me.

chris mason
02-17-2003, 01:34 PM
Right around 200.

SWOLE
02-17-2003, 04:50 PM
very impressive. I ave a bet with my roommates that at the end of the semester i can curl more than any of them can bench. only because i am trying to get them motivated and i dont think any of them will be able to do 205.
still, very nice either way... I will have to try it this week on arms day.

Was she duly impressed, Chris???

BTW, your getting the awesome 'freaky' strength going again, I see... Something you want to tell me about? ;)

chris you like using that wider grip-is that the strongest position for the biceps? (as it would seem to be by your lift)

ElPietro
02-17-2003, 08:29 PM
I would like to see some proof that that is actually you in the picture please...

A photocopy of your birth certificate, driver's licenense, passport, and social security card is in order as well.

Nice curling, btw.

No I do not. I am working on getting a digital camera, but with an anniversary coming up, the funds maybe limited for a while. But, I am trying to find some one around here to let me use theirs.
Thanks for taking an interest in some of my posts. Trust me though, I am not impressive, so don't get your hopes up :hide:

haha only cheating a little you look like your falling back. huge bi strength none the less

chris mason
02-18-2003, 07:13 AM
Ok, for proof, I am going to have a picture taken of me with a sign saying F-YOU Pietro!

Now, as to the wide grip, yes, it is the best position for me.

Yes, I was in my basement.

No, nothing to tell you about Craig, although if I did get on some monkey juice, then I would be really strong.

As to the lean, she caught me in full lean mode. That only lasted about a second. It was rather severe, I agree.
