You also completely ignored the fact that two of this sites most impressive lifters, hungry4more and maraudermeat, both include them in their training.
You have completely ignored the fact that neither of those two are anywhere near as butthurt that X doesn’t agree with your opinion.
LOL @ the interwebs.
This discussion could have been good, but no, you guys have to pull out every tired bullshit personal attack you can think off. Should I do a check box for you?
rrjc, your dumb anti-X posts aren’t’ helping the OP anymore than what you are complaining about X doing is.
Fact is, OP is a strong kid with a bright future looking to learn. And rather than have a conversation about this, you guys would rather critique X’s post rather than what he said.

Really? Your one post in this thread is to defend another fully grown man? Good thing you’re here, cause prof hasn’t backed his shit up at all.
I won’t even go into how big of a joke it is when someone has an opinion different than his, and all of a sudden the name calling, belitteling, and RIDICULOUS arguments start.
If it’s not the prof X way, it’s the wrong way. Despite the OP addressing prof X on the first page, explaining why he does them and why he will continue to do them, prof X will still fight tooth and nail on why the OP is still wrong. Fucking ridiculous.
I don’t know what thread you’ve been reading, but both prof X and I have a handful of posts in here. If you were to actually read them, I’ve offered insight on the lift, how I’ve included it in my training, and ways for anyone reading this to improve the lift (in my opinion, of course.) Prof X, on the other hand, has been going on and on about a POTENTIAL injury that will not IN ANY WAY affect prof X and belitteling people like he always does. He has literally offered NO insight on the lift, despite the fact that the OP said he will continue to do them no matter what because of his situation. He’s just not okay with OP training differently than him, because like I said, if it’s not the prof X way, it’s the wrong way.
On top of that, here’s something to keep in mind:
The OP blatantly stated he’s interested in powerlifting.
I’ve trained at Supertraining Gym for over two years. I’ve been lucky enough to lift (or at least talk and pick their brains) with lifters that include: Mark Bell, Scott Cartwright, Stan Efferding, Donnie Thompson, Ed Coan, Mike Tuscherer, among hundreds of other powerlifters ranging from weekend warriors up to people who total elite in their first meet. I’ve squatted 705 (in gear) in competition and have pulled 605 (in gear).
Professor X bodybuilds. He doesn’t have ANY experience with this lift. He doesn’t squat, bench, or deadlift. He’s just right - ALWAYS.
Funny how you single me out when there are numerous people in this thread (you know, powerlifters) who are disagreeing with him, yet you still single me out.[/quote]
Dude, honestly, what the fuck is wrong with you? I said this exercise creates a risk of damage to that tendon. It would create that risk by compressing that area…which could potentially effect someone who was also doing heavy curls or other biceps movements. If you want to do the fucking exercise, then do it.
There is nothing to be RIGHT about. Several other people have said the same thing in this thread about why they would avoid it yet I, AS ALWAYS, am the only one you seem this upset at.
If you have such a fucking issue with everything I type, put me on ignore and go on about your business. You have made entire posts in this thread now about bullshit like whether I have competed or not when NONE of that has shit to do with the discussion of this movement.
I have been at a pretty high level of strength for biceps movements since I don’t see too many people curling that much so I am not really sure how you think I am clueless about what could cause damage there when my brachioradialis is the muscle that got injured on me.
That was why progress was mentioned…because unless you also train biceps that heavy you don’t even have a reason to be screaming about me being wrong.
