    I remember reading an article from him saying his arms, never exceeded 18 1/2" cold. Maybe reffering to contest condition maybe. He said something similar about Bertil Fox as well.

    :werd: Do you HIT? I know there's a lot of hate on the web most places, but it's all that's worked for me.

    I've tried HIT or Heavy Duty on and off for years.
    I personally got better results from higher volume.
    On the other hand, two brothers I know have only done HIT and they're not only developed as hell, but damn strong as well. Genetics?
