Thanks, but keep in mind I am talking bench pressing, not curls, and I've been lifting weights consistently for 3 years. Still not able to bench 225 with barbell for reps. Since I've lost a few lbs, I find myself losing some strength as well, so not sure I will ever get to that goal.

Had a friend that was really into his rowing machine and getting excellent results. The next time I saw him, he told me he had tendonitis in both elbows. So be careful not to overdo the rowing machine.

I quite my gym membership about a year ago and enjoy working out at home with a combination of bands and dumbbells. The drive back and forth to the gym finally got to me.

This is the first time I have heard of a rower getting elbow tendonitis. Does he have a good sliding seat rower, with a cable or chain pull? With this type machine the movement at the elbow is entirely passive. It's almost as if your arms are cables, and when your back and lats finish the pull, the elbows are just along for the ride. Rowers' biceps do not get large.

The dumbbells and bands arrived and all look nice. Dumbbells are very easy to switch weights. I did today place an order for a weight bench. I wanted to be able to do some things that I just couldn't do without one...
