    So, Wendler's one article about bicep training automatically proves the efficacy? What's funny is that there have been countless articles about strength training and how to increase one's total and that is the only one I've ever seen that directly extolls biceps (not to say the others demonize it). 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.

    No chance. It's an Anytime Fitness and it has everything I need and is dirt cheap, so it just works. I'm not a fan of a number of the things, but I've been there for 3 years so I just tolerate it until I move.

    And we just got a PF in town and I ripped up the mail I got from them. I wanted to go there just to deadlift and get kicked out. lol

    Thanks for your opinion . . . now stop arguing as if only YOUR point of view is valid. Not everyone is a powerlifter, so not everyone cares about your opinion.

    I am not a powerlifter so I g for aesthetics, I want a balanced upper arm. I see guys at the gym who ONLY work their bicep and ignore the tricep, it looks ridiculous aesthetically.

    So to ME you POV is invalid, the curl IS important TO ME . . . . so now you can STFU

    agreed....some of us could care less about 1rm maxes and are over 20 years old so what muscles are used in what sport means nothing

    tell this guy biceps aren't needed...i'm sure his sandow's will say otherwise

    I would have to agree. Seeing the curl ain't gonna hurt no one, id say if you wanna do it curl all you like. Who doesn't like bigger upper arms? Well, I guess if ya jealous....

    Cliffs: Celorza is a douche who believes only his opinion is valid, if you have a different viewpoint then he will belittle you.

    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)

    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)
