After lunch decided on a little experiment with wrist curls. Have been doing them Scott/Pearl style with a block of wood and towel on bench to keep them strict. Trying Sipes style, on legs, angled down, shoulders toward knees at less then 90 degree angle to keep tension on forearms.

Wrist curl
130x30, 152x20, 20, 20, last five reps last set I used a little leg action to get bar moving, nice pump!
Reverse wrist curl
62x20, lowering weight for more top contraction, 52x20, 20, 20, again, nice pump, will feel these tomorrow.

 Visited Mexico many times, gave some seminars down here, liked the weather. The illegals are almost always the poorest, uneducated. However there are the middle class which you never hear about. Also Mexico is country number 4 in the world with billionairs. I have an unusual niche here as I train bodyguards and police, and trust me they need the training, as well as a martial arts school.

 I have been working on wrist curls hard for about 2 years now. Used to throw in a set or two as an afterthought, couple sets of 15-20 with a hundred lb barbell. Decide to treat them like any other move. I think you can make great gains if you spend a little time with them. I started mostly with barbell, but have gravitated toward more dumbell. My all time high was a bb with 242 lbs, one rep. Tried 250 but don't weigh enough to counterbalance the weight up. This was Larry Scott/Bill Pearl style, with forearms resting on small bench and levering up the weight, thumbless grip. When you can use 2 45's on each end of an OLY bar, people really freak out.


Bought a 6 ft chain, weighs 5 lbs, gonna try it out today. Still got the flu, hacking up all the bad stuff, workout will kill me or cure me.

SL deads
175x 6x6, thats it, I'm dead..uh...done.

19 min

Never planned on working out every day, but with 20-30 minute workouts, seems doable, and I feel like I have time and energy to hit everything. Am now cutting time, leaving weights where they are. Starting to see some physique changes. Soon will start tightening the diet.

Pullovers, dropping 5 lbs

20 min, fried. It will reamin to be seen if I can keep the weight up and drop the rest time. Never did catch my breath all the way through this workout! I'm starting to have doubts, hehe.
