    Curling video

    Ok, I took a video of me performing what I consider to be good form curls. I had a problem because, like an idiot, I forgot to erase the previous video from my camera. Thus, when I thought I was filming myself on my first heavy attempt, I was not ! I then decided to take a long rest and redo it. I think my form was a bit sloppier on the videod set due to my desire to repeat my fresh performance, but it was good enough. I got 185 x 2. Now, this is a lot less than 225, but the form was much better. Next time I train arms heavy, I will get a video of the sloppier 225.

    Anyway, I am going to stream the video to Howser and hopefully he will be able to get it online soon.

    So then, explain this when you put the video up, instead of making a post with nothing in it yet..?

    I noticed that you put up a sign that said WBB. That could have been done by anyone any time. So I suggest you put "Eric is my best friend!!!!" for your next vid

    Holy sh*t chris, good work man!

    You really need to get up a video of your friggin' support rows, them I am dying to see.

    I cannot get over how WIDE your grip is on BB curls. Mine is right at shoulder-width. Any benefit to doing them wider? Ill have to give them a shot that way.

    nice

    do you get any forearm pain doing 'em with the straight bar?

    I can only get 135 for a coupla reps but I find that with a straight bar it just kills my forearms; EZcurl bar makes it a lot more comfy

    For someone who claims to be fat you have great seperation in your arms.

    That's some really nice lifting. What kind of warm up do you do before that? That's just a lot of weight on the forearms, bi's and shoulders, not too mention the joints. I was just curious as to how you got ready for that.

    You're curling almost as much as I can power clean. LOL, if I tried curling that, it'd look like I was power cleaning it.

    As for the weight gain, that too shouldn't be a problem, just tell them your leaning out. Then flex your bi and tell them to ****ing get lost.

    Thanks.

    About the warmup, read my journal, I know nobody does, but I detailed it in there (please note the play for attention).

    Damn

    Chris that is amazing, Strength in its element!!

    Your pose was also quality it really demonstrated the true quality of your size, Think back to the last set of pictures you posted and how they didnt do you justice.

    The video rectified that
    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...
