A tricep bar??

Posted: October 23, 2010 in Uncategorized

So what is a Tricep bar – also known as a hammer curl bar? It’s an oval shaped bar that typically has two parallel hand placements that run through it’s middle and weight shafts on each end. Even though it is called a tricep bar, you can use it to work other body parts besides the triceps.

Similar to the EZ curl bar, you can use it to work the muscles from different angles and it can reduce the stress that a straight barbell can place on the joints in the arm (the wrists, elbows and forearms) by allowing for a much more ergonomic grip of the bar. Why? Ultimately, this will minimise the chances of injury (keeping in mind that you must have good form as well).

Simple huh?

What do you use them for? French curls, skull crushers, bicep hammer curls and more. Run hammer curl exercises through your fave search engine to get a better idea. .

These are a great utility bar to have around – once you’ve started using one, it;s hard to go back. I say, if you’ve got the cash, grab one.

(FYI: for anyone not sure, the triceps are the large muscles located on the back of the upper arm. They are principally responsible in life for straightening your arm (extending the elbow joint). In weight training, they are secondary mucscles in all bench pressing exercises. They can trained using isolation or compound exercises – the hammer curl bar uses isolation exercises. And of course training them does add extra width to the guns…).

Can’t decide.

I like to sweat so hot is good. Get a better pump.

But it’s good to warm up your body when it’s cold. Extra energy….

Either way, it always seems too hot, or too cold.

When you only follow two sports – there is a big gap between football stopping and cricket starting.

The commonwealth games ain’t cutting it!!!!!

The AFL grand final was crazy.

We just kept thinking it won’t be a draw, it can’t be a draw.

Other than conference organisers and the AFL (who both see the $), who the hell would see a repeat grand final as a good thing??

too much gym equipment

Posted: September 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

Not wanting to attend a gym (too puny relative to the juicers at my local) I bought a heap of equipment.

Is it too much? How much does a piece of equipment need to be used to be considered worthwhile? I have tools I use less often than some of my gym euipment but I never reconsider their place in my garage.

Stupid tools.

Gym equipment

Buying gym equipment seems to be a lot like buying a fridge. They all look the same, seem to have the same features, and cost roughly the same.
