    I didn't expect that to come from B. I'm with ya on that one though!
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    So when you are curling 185 lbs you don't have to waste energy picking it up from the floor , or, as the other fellow mention, for convenience.

    As always Chris there are exceptions to the rule and you are certainly one of them. I think i could go as far as saying that 95% of trainees couldn't curl half of that weight!

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

    nah, 95lbs isn't THAT heavy for curling, BigRon.

    Now those 225lb curls that mason has the video of? Those were cool.

    I agree Ron. Belial & Chris are part of a select few. Most people I see put at most 2 25lb plates on a barbell. At our gym, we have 2 100 lb barbells....on the barbell racks....at waist height.

    Also, if you are curling 185 lbs, I seriously doubt you are going to waste any energy lifting that weight of the floor. Well, unless you are a curl jockey will no lower body strength.

    yer rigjht, it needs to be in context

    if you're doing BB curls in the squat rack while people are waiting to squat, while using the best knurled oly bar in the place, with an entire DIME on each side, then you deserve some kind of scorn....

    I just need some inspiration here, what are some of your bicep/tricep routines how many sets of each and do you go light or heavy?

    In terms of direct work for biceps i use:

    2 sets of BB curls interchanged bi/weekly with preacher curls

    and

    2 sets of weighted dips

    Thats it, bi's and tri's dont need alot of direct work, unless your Arnold or Lee Priest (whom advocate 20 sets for each)

    I also suggest reading the 'Want big arms?' thread, its kicking around here somewhere pretty recent.
