I'm just curious: How can you measure your biceps and triceps separately? :rolleyes:

Back again :o
measurements pretty much the same
dropped 2kg though :D
so bodyweight's 98kg now
Dumbell pressing 55lbs for 8
Squating 40kg + olympic bar (could go higher but im a bit worried about my technique, might ask one of the guys at the gym to see what he thinks)
Deadlifts (110lbs REALLY BAD TECHNIQUE I SUCK AT DEADLIFTS :( , I think it's cause im not holding the bar high enough, keep hitting my knees on the way down and i know its got nothing to do with strength cause my BB row is almost the same)
Barbell Bent Over Row - 90lbs
Incline Dumbell Bicep Curl (35lbs - After back exercises and not much of an incline, more like seated to stop me cheating with my back :) )

I think I might be overtraining my biceps though :/
cause my Back & Bi day consists of
Deadlifts (2 Work sets)
Lat-Pulldown (2 Work sets)
Bent-Over Row (2 Work sets)
Incline Dumbell Bicep Curl (2 Work sets)
Hammer Curls (2 Work sets)

Maybe I should drop the hammer curls?

And I see what you mean about the measuring bicep seperately from tricep, I spose the correct term would be Arm size or something :)

Oh yea the measurements were flexed and I got one other question. Is bone size a measure of potential? Cause im around 5'7 and have a 7"inch wrist and a 12" ankle. Is that good?

Db pressing 65lbs for 5
Squating 90kg (inlc. bar) for 8

still aiming for those 85lb Db by midyear
