    I'm assuming your Paul? Lol all I know is I PERSONALLY think there is a direct correlation with rows and pulls and biceps. The stronger my bi's are the better my seated rows, pull downs and pull ups are.

    I don't think the fact he defends his ground is arrogant but the way he comes across making it sound like his opinion is right yours is wrong and your an idiot if you don't agree with him shows arrogance.

    Strong this.

    It isn't the opinion or the knowledge (perceived or legitimate). Its the presentation of those things that most people have an issue with.

    Take Jason for example, ZiR.Red, he is easily the most dedicated person on this board but he doesn't come off as a know it all when he talks to people. (Not to say that celly always does that but it does happen)

  7. i cant believe this fukin thread is still going. do mods neg each other?

  8. Wow, check out Cel's useless bicep. Why does he flex this useless muscle? Better question: Why does he even train this worthless muscle? Maybe that muscle is bigger than his brain.

    it doesn't take guts to sit behind the internets and type . . . I can tell you anything I want and it won't make a difference because you don't know me or where to find me. Don't try to look for me, my avi is not really me.

    Bro if you read it was him and me.

    Then him and Texas (they have prior issues)

    Along with Rodja and Jason providing the answers to any questions along the way.

    That is in no way 1 vs the world (or the thread in this instance)

There's also a large element of marketing about this as Wendler is now a one-man business. Rewriting PL info that has been repeated for decades will not make you stand out; making an outside the box statement will.

    At the time, Wendler worked for EFS and most likely had free reign to post whatever he would like. Tate also is not the editor for EFS and hasn't been so for some time now.
    There have been multiple discussion points regarding biceps training from athletic prowress to injury prevention and performance enhancement.

    When the conversation tilted to subjective opinions over the efficacy of biceps training enhancing various lifts, a world renowned powerlifting coaches opinion was posted. Don't get sideways.

    The argument is whether biceps training correlates to performance and it does. You can argue how much so if you'd like but that would be a different conversation. And actually, the argument is whether or not curling 160 pounds is impressive. And a legit 160 lb dumbell curl would be. That's some heavy ass weight considering the lift.

    Did you read what I said earlier? Cel comes across as if his way is the only correct way, yet that is NOT true. He is a powerlifter so his needs will be different for someone such as a bodybuilder or a performance athlete.

    Sure, it may be true that bicep strength is not of significant importance in his sport, but for those of us pursuing other endeavors the bicep may be important. Therefore his POV is inaccurate to others, yet he will insult them for their opinion. THAT is arrogance.

    It's not a cookie cutter personality its just a matter of respect.

    He doesn't treat others with respect (sometimes) which is why some people don't get along with him here.

    ok, since you put it that way then I can say THIS:

    Celorza, thanks for being you. Without you AM would be boring. The world is a more interesting place with douchebags, that is true.

  17. Yeah a 160lb curl would be impressive. Crossfit powerlifter guy will say no because that's not how they train BRO. And crossfit guy is all knowing.

    I'm so confused. I'm going back and forth between laughing and then having my brain hurt from reading this.

    And in an attempt to contribute to this thread (I don't know that it's even worthwhile, but whatever): I don't see any reason in attempting to make each muscle group as strong as it can be. As with most anything, it ultimately depends on your goals and strength vs. aesthetics will differ, but also have some overlap (again, like a lot of things). I like to have both, but at the end of the day, I'd train more for aesthetics than for strength. That's just my personal preference. But biceps don't need a ton of direct work anyway as long as you're doing the compound lifts you should be. I like to add in a light day of doing isolation work on bis and tris, but that's just the way I like to do it.

    Just FYI, I don't think he can join, given his age and the content of this forum.

    However, I wouldn't peg a 5 year-old for browsing forums, either. Then again, kids are using technology at younger and younger ages...creepy stuff.

    You can make an effort to justify it based upon vulgarity but an insult is still an insult.

    THAT (Celorza) reaks of newbie overcompensation. And literal ignorance outside his own view, and even within it.

    I believe Celorza actually learns through antagonistic behavior though. I don't care to guess what makes his default antagonistic and negative but it is his communication pattern.

    He won't admit it when he learns something new though, unless its from someone he's already made himself "vulnerable" to. My guess is a Napolean Complex here.

    In fact, it was trapp mann who demonstrate a direct relationship between the size of the bicep and the width of his trapps. Trapp told me once that when he did bumbell curls he lats grew at a ratio of 5:1 to his biceps. For all you dummies that means when his back width increased by 5 inches his arm diameter increased by 1 inch.

    I am barely an inch taller than Cel, but I do not have any issues . . . I guess I am more grounded in who I am, I am wiser through my years of existence.
