    Along the way I also hit several milestone targets as to my chest, arms and quads.
    I wanted a chest over 50 inches, arms over 18 inches and quads over 28 inches.

    If memory serves, working out from 4-6 days a week for 1.5- 2 hours a workout for ten years ( this was back in the 70's and early 80's during the high volume Arnold training era), I built my chest from around 42 inches into around 54 inches , my arms from around 14 and half inches into 18 and a half inches and 22 inch quads into 28 inch quads.
    Wow! How much of that size do you still currently hold?

    28" quads would be awesome! Mine have never been bigger than 25"

    I hope you are doing well recently considering what has been going on...

    I hope all is as well as it can be.

    For those hammer curls with a twist at the top, im guessing thats a supination in order to burn out the forearm and biceps?
    Turn the other cheek and I'll break your fucking chin.

    I do them that way because it turns a move like a standard hammer curl that mostly hits the Brachioradialis in the forearm into a combo one that hits the Brachioradialis , the Brachialis and the Lateral biceps hard as well.

    Place the fingers of your left hand on top of your right Biceps and do a right arm standard hammer curl with your thumb on top.

    Then do another hammer curl except this time except supinate the move and squeeze at the top of the ROM.

    Feel the difference, the Biceps pops up.
