    That's mostly a back exercise. Yeah bicep curls!

    I did a special set yesterday and I'm sore as hell.

    My trainer would have me do them balancing over a fitness ball. It really makes you isolate your biceps. Also, butterfly press. Fitness balls and those little balance half-balls are actually very useful but only if you like circuit type workouts.

    Fitness ball!

    I think that's in P90X2. I'm not shelling out anymore $$$ for equipment.

    Pull-ups? Good for developing the back and shoulder muscles. And triceps or biceps, depending on which way you hold onto the bar.

    Mac, I have a hard time imagining you doing any of those workouts.

    You're just making things up to sound manly aren't you?

    You goofy INTP.
