I'm mainly limiting carbs every day except for preworkout, postworkout, and one postworkout meal. That's it. Everything else is lean meat, cheese, butter, veggies, ect.

What this does is allow me to be human. What I mean is, I already know my protein is very high. Every day, I cook either 2 lbs of lean ground beef and 10 egg whites (mixed together) w/ some veggies and chip away at it all night shift long, OR it's 3 gigantic chicken breasts along with some eggs and whey.

My carbup days are almost exclusively on my off days from work because that allows me to enjoy the day with my family and eat meals without worrying about carbs. Those are the days when I'm eating my apples, whole wheat tuna sandwiches, Subway, ect.
Thats pretty much how I go about things,it allows you to be human like you say.I also am finding my workout energy is off the hook eating ground beef and brocolli or tuna and salad.All the carbs I was eating before just made me feel sluggish.

D, let me ask you, have you ever done tricep extensions off pins. In other words sort of like you would do pause presses off pins except with extensions.

To make a long story short I start doing that with a barbell and also doing something similar with dumbells where I use a racked bar to "rest" my wrist on (neutral grip). Probably just because it's something new it's working well for me. My elbows take it very well and my shoulders, etc..

But I was wondering if is was missing anything as far as detriments. I don't think ROM is a big factor especially since the typical extension actually produces more stretch in the triceps than the bench does. And of course it's not the only thing I do.

But I've never seen it done before although I'm sure I didn't invent it, lol. What do you think? For all I know it could be completely common.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I've never seen those done either. Thinking I may have to give them a go.

Just another way to get the right needle

Eric, those extensions off of the pins would very closely mimick a JM press, which is an extremely good strength builder for your bench. I'd probably favor doing barbell skulls to my face or neck in the rack as you've described because it's a lot of stress on my elbows when I do them free range.

In my case, due to time restraints, all my skullcrushers I do are on the floor which is about the same thing. If I want more ROM, I usually lay down on a aerobics platform.

The only time I used the pins was for doing an 'elbows out' face press for high reps. Just keep a closegrip, elbows completely flared, and set the pins just above your face.

That was my thinking that is somewhat mimics JM presses but I wanted to see you say it, D. JM presses my shoulders just will not tolerate but these in the rack they don't mind. And I prefer the dumbells in the rack for the same reason...elbows.

Elbows out I was never able to do either but I'll try it with pins.

Thanks, muchly, D, I will experiment and synthesize all of this.

I've never done EZ bar extensions on the floor, Hits.
