Yeah I lift quite a bit but not really for anything else than health and to look semi decent  ;D

I went through a few new exercises to see what I should add to my workout. Tried a dumbbell tricep extension at 30 lb and that failed horribly lol. My muscles gave out immediately and I hit my upper black hard enough to make it blead.

So seems like a good one to do, just at a much lower weight haha.

Were you doing single arm or holding with both hands?

I was consistently going 3x a week, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  But then I got Covid.  Then I got strep throat.  I'm trying to get back in the grind.

oh for sure! The weight was underweight for all the other exercises I tried but I didn't expect my tricep to be non existent lol.

Single arm. Is one method better?

No not really.  They both will help develop a more full tricep. Certain angles will hit different heads of the tricep more.

But i always find the lighter dumbbell weights for both triceps and biceps are great because they allow you to focus more on time under tension(moving slower) in order to engage the muscles more.  Like i typically won't go much more than a 35 or 40 dumbbell for a single arm tricep.  Same with bells.

This is my all time favorite workout gear/general wear clothing.  Its definitely expensive but they have rewards and after a certain amount spent you get a 20% discount for life.

I have never found a brand as comfortable and durable as these, tbh.

i had been working out in my boxes but i just kept ripping them.   they just weren't flexible enough to survive when i did certain movements.   so i just stopped wearing them.

For power and bodybuilding for example

I'm starting with 20 pounds shared between both arms. It's pretty funny/awkward feeling to use these muscles since they're so undeveloped.

I'm definitely a fan of slow and deliberate movements. You get so much more out of each rep.

Pff no one does that  ;)

I routinely lift 100 pounds worth of toddlers, carrying them up and down stairs.  

Spoiler for Hidden:
what I should have said for my first post in the thread.

I have a great family photo where I did a "human totem poll" with my kids.  

I also have a great one of my then 5 year old on the shoulders of my then 7 year old.   I'm actually in the back holding the 5 year old up but was able to completely hide from the camera.
