YOu could reach new heights man.

Nah man, I lift/workout to maintain my health, putting all that stuff in my body would defeat the purpose of why I do it. I'm already starting to approach the limits of how big I want to be, my arms are just under 19", my chest is 49" and I honestly don't want to get much bigger than I am now. My goal now is just to get down to 215-220lbs and be in the 11-13% body fat range, lean out and get more vascularity.

Plus, once you get off the gear your strength gains generally go out the window. Nevermind the fact that I am a huge cheapskate!

Respect the hustle!

After Tough Mudder training I'm at 167 at 6.5%, body fat according to the device that sends electrical impulses thing. And this was by accident.

I don't believe it for one sec (estimated more like 8 or 9.. lower abs well past showing non-flexed, striations in quads clear as daylight.. no veins in glutes though), but MY GOD, the hillesprints and the calisthenic circuits mixed with the intermittent fasting paleo diet REALLY RAELLY work.

Just a suggestion for those looking for fatloss. And obviously at this point I'm a skinny b!tch and it's time to fukking up the calories and get strong.

^^ It's such a tough balance between keeping your body fat down and gaining muscle. With me personally, every time I cut I look small, and every time I bulk I look a bit fat. So finding that happy-middle is a constant battle.

Been dealing with a strained wrist the last two weeks, can't remember if it was the weighted dips or the tricep pulldowns that hurt it but it's been really annoying.

Dealing with the same thing. But mine hurts when I do barbell curls. Had to resort to doing 'Dumbbell hammer curls' to relieve the pain. It doesn't hurt during push movements though, thank gawd.


On another note, I found another Arnie motivational youtube vid. Pretty good, enjoy!

mine hurt all the time, its probably the only reason why i dont bench or curl more they are the first that give up. they are as thick as my d*ck. most of the girls have thicker wrists than mine.
and from what i know, no muscle can be gained there so im pretty much f*cked. and i dont think its genetics my father and brother are decent, i guess i didnt get enough milk as a kid

I re-aggravated it tonight, was doing DB rows with some heavy ass weights and instead of just dropping the weight I slammed it to the ground with my hand still on it like a moron. Of course my wrist was like "WHAT THE HELL MANNNN" and sent a shooting pain right up my arm.

Great video, this is a Arnold classic as well

Do you remember how you hurt them? LOL, I have some thin ass wrists too, thanks to my arms being really long, you can get a tiny bit more thickness on them with wrist curls. But, since yours are in pain as well that will make it a bit difficult for now.

That's just how it is sometimes, I have thick ankles and naturally big calves but my wrists are pretty thin I think.

Got the same problem as you guys: small weak-ass forearms. What I did was take a week and a half off from lifting until the pain went away. Then when I started working out again, I made sure to work my forearms during every work out. Mostly doing that exercise where you wind up a weight that is hanging on a rope attached to a small tube. Just wind it up and down in both directions until your forearms are burning.

I do it every workout just like I do abs. I have much less trouble now.

I've been on and off since I last posted. Nothing really consistent, then I went to Canada for 2 weeks and came back out of shape. Luckily I was eating a ton, so I've been working hard to transform it to muscle.

I don't know what my weight was when I last posted, but I'm at 170 as of 2 hours ago (after taking a dump).

Arms and chest are getting defined, they're also starting to grow a bit more.

Gonna have to do squats and calve raises.

I'm the complete opposite of most of you guys on here. I have large forearms, and strong wrists, but the shitty end of that is my arms (in my opinion at least) have never looked big.

I've got to say, having strong wrists is a big advantage in the weight room. I see a lot of people when benching letting the bar sit on their palms when they get to a heavyish weight for them (I dunno, I guess 185lbs + for most people). I'm lucky enough to have strong wrists and therefore comfortable in keeping all the weight behind my wrist, even on heavy sets of 275lbs+ and not having to put all the stress on the wrist when being bent and having the bar sit on your palm.
I think if you do have that problem, its good to drop the weight and get comfortable with it behind your wrist. Its going to save your wrists, and you'll be able to push more weight once you get back to your heavier weights with these new habits.

Anyone know a good calf workout for mass besides donkey calf raises. I lack the resources available to do that particular exercise.

That is exactly what my problem was. I had to reduce weight and train myself how to hold the bar properly so that the force was going directly through the wrist and into the forearm.

Forgot to add my wrist also hurts when I do Barbell rows. Started doing them over-hand (instead of under-hand) to relieve the pain.

Great vid man! I love that era of body building. To me those guys had the ideal bodies. Not like the freaks today.

Great advice Plow. This is what anyone should do who is having wrist problems.

Grip is definitely a limiting factor for a lot of us. Definitely not always good for the ego.
