You gotta warm up dude. Of course straight up arm wrestling somebody can cause an injury. Thats like a max squat with no warmup.


#3754

Fuarkkk


#3755

:rofl:

#3756

I don’t get why anyone would compare Eddy’s lift to this one. Ain’t they just completely different?


#3757

Yes.


#3758

Deep water intermediate week 2
10×10 axle strict press 35kg 4 minutes rest. That sucked lol. Axle feels better on my shoulders.

Curls


#3759

I see no volume. So that means you skipped Curls. I feel better about skipping curls now


#3760

i was supposed to do 5 sets, i did 3 but on the last set did a dropset and then did band curls immediately after. i dont like curls tbh


#3761

W-What?? You don’t like that SKIN TEARING PUMP. THAT LUDICROUS LACTIC ACID?!?! I love curls if you can’t tell.


#3762

There just so boring, also i can never seem to progress on them either and it pisses me off.


#3763

Just max out ur cheat curl


#3764

Max out on dingleberry curls, gotta use fake plates to confuse the audience… right babe??


#3765

Maybe because you keep changing the programming on them because you think they are boring?


#3766

This^ you won’t get the results you want it if you keep changing things up.


#3767

i dont think thats the case, since ive started lifting i havent been able to curl more than 10kg dumbells for reps

cough cough Conjugate


#3768

Use a barbell, per the program.

Conjugate doesn’t have you switch things up. You stay with conjugate the whole time you do conjugate. You don’t do ME work on Monday and then 5/3/1 on Wed.

Yes, you change movements in conjugate as PART of conjugate. That isn’t what you are doing here.


#3769

I’ve never really done much barbell curls, are they easier to progress on?


#3770

also @isdatnutty seems to do well and constantly changes things up


#3771

Yup. Allows for more cheating as needed, you are able to stabilize better, and you will be stronger with 2 arms working together.

Edit: Using an axle also hammers the forearms pretty well.


#3772

Just gotta hit the gym hard, not miss days and eat! I don’t think programming and all that matters that much up until a certain point. Your muscles don’t know if you are doing full body or upper lower or whatever.
