Re: Natural lifting- summed up in one picture

For those of us who are uninformed can someone state, from left to right, who each of these gentlemen are. I believe Sean Connery was also at that contest or maybe a year or two afterwards. Many don't know that "James Bond" had done a bit of bodybuilding in his younger days prior to getting famous. J

Re: My Triceps Pushups Stand

You know what? Some of you might be wondering, golly gee, Bruce, how'd you come up with this? And I don't blame you. I'd be wondering this, myself. And I'm glad you asked. I was doing my triceps pushups against my pool noodle on the edge of my table when I thought I'd really like a couple of handle...

Re: My Triceps Pushups Stand

Yes, you hold the handles with palms facing each other and the edges of your hands resting on the foam cushions. The device is braced against the edge of a table, counter, or whatever else you want to do triceps puhups off of. Here is a pic of trceps pushups with fists on a folded towel. The Tricep...

Re: What Are Triceps Extensions?

Wow, four pages on this subject, so far. Looks like way too many folks with way too much time on their hands. The correct verbiage for what this exercise is called is The French Curl. French Curl - That's what I first heard them called. And then I'd heard "Kickbacks" called Triceps Extensions. At s...

Re: My Triceps Pushups Stand

http://shenster.angelfire.com/Images/trithingy1_5.jpg Made this little honey some time ago. Works beautifully. I had filed/sanded down the diameters of the PVC on either end of the handle assembly so that it would rotate freely within the elbows on either end. Beneath each handle is a 3/8" thick fo...

Re: TRAINING LOG 2018

Here's a question for you guys. If a routine you see in a book says 5x5 (obviously 5 sets of 5 reps). How do you know if they are counting warm up sets? or if it is 5 "work" sets or even 5 straight across I think they call it. and just 1-3 or more .warm up sets they don't count? Sticks you make up ...

Re: What Are Triceps Extensions?

I've gotten the impression that there are some people here who have somewhat dabbled in weights, so I've got a question for you... I have always called pushing a barbell or dumbbells up from behind your neck Triceps Curls or French Curls. I see, though, that these are sometimes called Triceps Exten...

Re: A Bit o' This 'n' That

My dad bought of those Bullworkers in the early 1970's when I was a teenager. I messed around with it but never really found it did much of anything. The chest exercises and perhaps the arm exercises may have been of some use, but again, I go back to barbell training. I just think for all the gadget...
