    Just ordered my own CAP Super Curl Bar. My gym only has 1 curl bar like this and if it's busy, you aren't going to get it. Since I'm getting back into bodybuilding again, I need to put more focus into my arms, which is why I bought this. It comes with collars, which is really cool. I will post a review after I use it a few times !!!

    Got a new phone last weekend (the Note 8), and it's been tracking my steps. Surprised the stuffins out of me that I've averaged 4 miles a day on my feet, and this afternoon, working 3.5 hours at the store, it says I walked the equivalent of 3 miles. Funny how they add up...when I retire (if I ever retire) I'll have to make a point of walking.

    Last night I benched 130Kg for 3 doubles, I am inching my way back to the magic (for me) 137.5 (300 lbs for you US types). Hopefully I can get to three triples by the end of October...well that's the plan - time will tell. :)

    Haven't done curls in years, all I do is squat, bench, deadlift, over head press, dips and pullups. Anything a bit specific is too involved for me :)

    I'm not a fan of curls myself, or any direct arm exercise for that matter. But since my arms are not a responding growth muscle for me, they need some direct work if I have any chance in increasing their size.

    Weighted Pull Ups...35/6 and 35/5
    1 Arm DB Rows...120/10 and 120/8
    Body Weight Pull Ups...2 sets to failure
    Curl Bar Bicep Curls...85/10 and 95/6

    Sick workout today. Back is my favorite body part to train by far. Biceps, not so much. I used my new CAP Curl Bar today for the first time and I love it. The inside and outside angles are more steep than the the gym's curl bar, which for me feels more ergonomically correct. I followed the workout with a shake of 1 scoop of whey protein, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and 1/2 cup of oats. I followed that up 2 hours later with half a rotisserie chicken, the other half 3 hours after that, and I have a nighttime shake ready to go before bed. TIME TO GROW !!!

    Standing Shoulder Press: 105/8...115/6...115/5
    1 Arm Side Laterals: 35/10...35/8
    Barbell Shrugs (behind back): 225/25...245/20...245/15

    Another great workout today. I used my new CAP curl bar again today, this time for standing shoulder presses. Wow, they feel great! The hand positions on this bar feel very ergonomically correct. I also do barbell shrugs behind my back. This way just always felt better to me than in front. TRAIN HEAVY, EAT CLEAN, GROW !!!

    Thanks. I expect the shoulder press numbers to rise quickly. This was the first time in years I used a barbell instead of dumbbells for this exercise. Once my body gets used to the movement, I'll be doing 135 before you know it !!!
