    Yeah, I dunno. I guess I can't really relate since lately and for the foreseeable future I spend 99% of my time on what you might call 5 moves. And recently I've spent a large portion of that 99% on...

    IMHO you can ignore curls, leg raises. Swap some kind of pullup or chinup for curls, use weights if they're too easy. I do front pullups and hang weights off a simple looped rope arrangement around...

    Holy shit GDA, you're killing it lately. I know I couldn't do 370 right now and I've got 50lb on you. Well done. How many lb difference you reckon the belt makes? I've never used one personally.
