    What scooter said. You could also do Dimel deadlifts, aka romanian deadlifts with a lot of speed and a big pop at the top.

    This bodybuilder came up to me one time while I was doing Pull-throughs and asked me if I knew what I was doing. I said yes, they're called pull-throughs, then he proceded to do curls with the benching barbell.

    Do you understand that the second you
    look in the mirror and you're happy with
    what you see, baby, you just
    lost the battle!
