Small Session

Bodyweight - 245

Band Pull Aparts - x15,15,x20

Poundstone Curls - bar x 115  PR

Tricep Band Pushdown Facedown on Bench Extension Thingee - 3 sets

Notes - Got my bands from elitefts so I'm playing with it.  Did hit a nice PR in the Poundstone curls.  The last few reps, that was as far as I could curl my arms.  They are shaking as I type this.  I can now also do the kind of tricep extensions I could only do at the gym on a cable.  I do them prone with the band however.  These are elbow friendly and work very well.


  1. Paul,
    I tried out the poundstone curls for the first time a week or so ago and they were brutal.. it's amazing what curling the bar alone can do. 115 reps is ridiculous!!

    Just finished the book and i can't say enough how fantastic it was. i can't imagine what kind of effort and time went into that.. thanks for all you do.. keep up the good work.

    1. Yeah I was determined to just break past the 100 rep barrier tonight.

      I'm glad you enjoyed SLL. It makes me feel like a champion when someone tells me how much they enjoy my work.

  2. What the hell is a Poundstone curl ?

    High rep barbell curls ?

    1. Empty bar with as many reps as possible. Generally 100+

  3. Paul, what's up with all the arm work? Are you doing it to maintain balance/overall symmetry? I ask because I seem to get enough from chins, OHP, etc. but I've been thinking about going back to doing just a few arm exercises for the sake of my own vanity :) P.S.Bought the book, looking forward to it!
