Firing up the Forearms

Various curls and a bit of gripper work.


In the midst of assisting my flatmate's training this evening I decided to test the post-flu waters with a bit of grip and arm work. This consisted of various curls and a bit of gripper work, as well as the usual combination of spotting and talking.

GRIP CoC Grippers (each hand) 2x10@T, 2x10@1 (partials) Bicep curl (dumbbells - each side) 2x10@11.5kg Zottman curl (dumbbells - each side) 2x10@11.5kg Wrist curl (dumbbells - each side) 2x10@11.5kg
Total time forgot to check - about an hour
