    tip of the day: despite what the dipshits in my gym display......wrist wraps sould not be used for any chest exercise. EVER. If i see one more douch bag wrapping up dumbells to do presses i am going to lose it. wraps are for pulling. If you dont have the grip strength to rerack the weights then go lighter.

    Also dont use them for biceps for gods sake. tool bags.
    i've been at it for about 7 months, but ive never seen anybody do that before. i use straps for deads and shrugs.

    I've seen straps being used for dumbell, chest work outs. I lol.

    The guy has the worst form I have ever seen. I will laugh when he has to release those heavy weights in a hurry and pulls his arm out of his socket

    Yeah pretty much the only thing they should be used for are:

    heavy shrugs
    pull ups
    heavy pulldowns
    heavy rows
    Deadlifts

    basically anything where your muscle could do more but your grip strength gives out first. I say HEAVY sets because you should try to do as many sets without wraps as you can so your grip strength improves.

    I see dudes using wraps for DB presses all the time. Also for DB curls.....and i have even seen guys wrap up on BB presses. It boggles my mind.

    Dont even get me started on weight belts and wrist wraps....

    There is some chode looking guy, maybe 5'5 210, at my gym that doesn't understand the concept of controlled release. he jerks the weight, then literally lets it go and slam down as hard as it can. low rows, for example. he just swings and pulls it all the way to his chest, then lets it go and the stack falls and clanks all over the damn place. same thing with pulldowns. on top of that, he grunts like a congested little girl too. makes me rage.

    my legs especially my quads are completely shot today i did a circuit that made me want to die i haven't worked out legs in over 3 months before today seeing as to how i was in a cast for those 3 months heres what it consisted off
    8x8 leg extension
    8x8 leg curl
    8x8 leg press
    8x8 goblet squats
    and i would've done 8x8 of seated calve raises but that motion highly risks me re-braking my foot so i'll pass for another 3 or four weeks till fully healed
    edit: and it was extremely fast i got this done in a little over a half hour which is very fast for me

    It's a great workout. I mentioned that earlier in the thread. 4 hours over two days. May hit it again tomorrow when this wind dies.

    /\ Ahh, my bad. Missed that...


    If i was stuck in the snow, I would build a bad ass snow fort. Like an igloo snow fort complete with tunnels to a second snow fort. Shit would be serious!!!

    you don't have to "tap" the weights at the top lol, thats some of the dumbest shit i have ever heard. i bring them down to chest level, so that is past 90 degrees. 90 seems much to small of a rom for me.

    this kid was like 14 and was telling me how i should do it. i kinda laughed but just needed to make sure. i dont understand why you would bring it up and then proceed to tap them over the head. i was getting a full effect but i guess the tap makes your bigger
