    Biceps 21s


    This is how I do 21s rather than the conventional version. The pump is insane. The growth is even better.

    There was an article posted here a couple weeks ago detailing just that. It looked interesting.

    Dammit. Well either way here it is in action. I can't say I'm the first to do it this way but I can say I didn't see someone else do it first and claim as my own

    Shaped eyebrows? Other than keeping the unibrow in check, those aren't shaped. The hair, oh well. And what's wrong with the shirt?

    It's one of those tweaks that seems logical and common but not everyone does them. The gym I train at there are big guys and a lot of average joes. The average joes don't seem to take to the big fellas. I offer my input on things and they ask questions which have sparked my recent videos.

    Careful man, I've seen a lot of gelled hair and tank tops with gold chains at Sox games before.

    I don't use extended set principles at the start of any workout.
    It drains you too quickly. Regardless of what people want to say about them, they are finishers.
    I do 2 sets of these as my last biceps exercise.

    no problem.

    My only other thing I will start doing is a flex after each exercise (not after each set, at least to start).
    i.e. do 3 sets of chest press. after the 3rd set, flex my pecs and hold for 30 seconds.
    might move to every set in time, but for starting out, it will be sparse.

    I agree of the pump is insane. 21s are probably my favorite exercise to burn out on during tricep training
