I can't endorse the website one way or another, but this seems to capture the idea:
I believe you can also do it without a bench but have never tried it.
Pull ups are the best move for your back, biceps and even your core, doodals. It doesn't matter if you can't do one now. If you don't train to complete a set of 10 you never will be able to do one. So start training yurself to do pull ups, start with assited pull ups, and so on. Sooner than later you will be making 10-12 without any help.
Oh...I didn't know that helped with building muscles to allow you to do pull ups. Thanks!
Congrats on the new job.
Hope to see you around more now!
What the heck is this roped shoulders that everyone is talking about?
You should try it as it will engage more of your core muscles and give you a more full body workout. Try standing with your feet shoulder width apart and step forward with your left foot with the dumbell in your right hand. Bend at the waist to get in the appropriate position to do a one-arm row with your right hand and extend the left arm out to the side for balance. You'll have to decrease the weight of the dumbell, but will feel the difference right away.
I also echo the suggestion to use the weighted assist machines for pull-ups. Those are awesome for pull-ups and dips.
Lots of great workout advice here by SeaJen, Betel, Archibald, Calypso, New Shoes and others! This thread really gives good natured advice on every single aspect, no matter how distantly related to menswear. Having said that, staying in shape is somewhat necessary if you want to fit in your suits down the line.
I don't see that personally, but everyone gets their own impression on things. The main differences between the cuts are that L&L has a very particular shape from gorge to quarters: very rounded and very symmetrical between top and bottom of buttoning point; the buttoning point is also often higher and the lapels are more isocel and less elongated. You can that lapel shape reasonably well on the Ethan picture. The Formosa cut is not symmetrical above/below the buttoning point : the lapels are elongated and plunging to a lower buttoning point. The quarters are not as open and rounded. In a nutshell : L&L cut = ϽC while Formosa = )( Also, Liverano has a voiced distaste for extended front darts (which are common in Neapolitan tailoring from Rubinacci to Formosa) so their coats don't have any.
