And again, for the record...

I would never, and have never stated "pinwheel curls" are the 11th commandment. I like them, they are fun. That is all.

It's not about who has a bigger bench or bigger arms. Not at all. Never was, and never will be. It's about respect. This is not the only lifting forum that operates this way. Several other prominent lifting sites that have this rule, or similar rules, have managed to keep the forum free of e-stats and article commandos.

In addition, I need to state that this is not a business. All the money generated from this site goes back to sponsor lifters, and is returned via contests. I pay $100-200 each month out of my own pocket to keep this site moving, and to help promote lifters.


I have made a commitment to the lifters of this community, and I will abide by my commitment. I do not hold a grudge against anyone who dislikes our rules.

Much appreciated

Its a biz in the sense we want the site to thrive an prosper at the highest level possible. We will all do what is necessary for that.

Jason has made great gains this past year. We spent some time practicing poses (if you can call my maneuvering posing), and I was most of all surprised by his bicep peak. I commented to Jslep about his noticeable size increase.

I'm glad I'm not alone on this.

And I am like Jslep, I use only about 60's on pinwheels. I can't touch the massive monster weight some of these guys use.

I'm a fan of pinwheel curls..actually did them today. When I'm going heavy with these I use some body English and try to fight the negative. I'm all for using some momentum to get the weight moving as long as I feel it where I should be.

i think it's like you said steve olympic style lifts are more often then not done using momentum to explode the lift. a clean and jerk is most definitely not a restricted movement but can develop a ton of mass and working with kettle bells uses a lot of movement as apposed to strict but doing snatches with these are also something that could be beneficial to mass building.

now i don't want to take anything away from slow and controlled movements but to say explosive power movements for anybody part don't have a place i think is wrong. you may not use them in your routine but to tell someone else not to use them cause they are pointless or worthless i think is completely inaccurate.
