“It’s really exciting,” said West Hollywood Councilmember John D’Amico, who came up with the idea of Go-Go Dancer Appreciation Day in 2011. “This is the first-ever Tom of Finland display at MOCA. It seemed natural to tie go-go dancing to the opening of the exhibit.”

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Biceps!

The kind of soreness you feel in your muscles after thick-bar training is that DEEP muscle destruction sensation that lasts 2 – 4 days. In other words, it’s one of the best feelings in the world!

Just make sure you focus on FULL EXTENSIONS on every exercise and really kill it with the THREE SECOND TEMPO on the dumbbell hammer curls at the end.
