    Add resistance bands to your weights. Get your preacher chair and face it to a cornor were you can stretch a band around and put band in middle curl bar then curl. Makes the negative movement tougher. Cause thats were you get your tear anyways is your negatives. I hope that came out right lol

    Somewhere around the two minute mark I started feeling like I was watching a commercial, sure enough there’s a link to James Grage’s resistance bands in the description.

      If you can’t understand the logic of what he’s saying, then it’s your own loss. Resistance bands give me a much better workout and pump than I ever got in the gym, and I can travel with them.
      If i was in his position I would develop my own resistance bands and sell them too, why let another company profit from your hard work when making a good video?

    Resistance bands are not to be shrugged off, with bands that go up to 200 lbs of resistance you could easily overlap 3 of them and hit 600 lbs. Hell you could always tie or grab the bands differently to create a shorter distance that will give you the lock out resistance at the beginning of the lift.
