    I'm going to have to say that I refuse to do bicep curls. This is largely attributed to the fact that weighted chins will give you much more of a bicep workout than any curl will.

    Plus, there is far less strain on the wrist and elbow.

    lol sorry bro, I'm sort of nit picking here but do most strongmen not consider themselves serious trainers because most strongmen i've seen do some sort of curls or upper body isolation movement, as an assistance exercise, or even a pre-hab exercise.

    I don't mind the thought of curls or anyone else doing them to that matter, as long as a routine isn't based around it. Hell magnus samuelson can curl a piss load, and that piss load is enough to crush us, so fair plair to him lol

    Seriously I think doing curls at all has become synonymous with the "bench and curl" work out which strikes me as a bit of a shame.

    Carnal doesn't do pullups, so your point is irrelevant.

    B0rt by lung dump.

    I'm heavier than Carnal now and I can do pullups. Because I'm a fucking champion.

    Fixed.

    According to Sports Illustrated, Vasily Alexeyev could do 32 pull-ups while weighing in the mid-300s.

    Don't forget to "assist" it with both arms, otherwise the bar will go up unevenly...

    Well... If you follow your bench and curls work out with squats and SLDL's youll be golden.

    I have always thought that if you feel your back exercise like rows or pullups in bi's your doing it wrong...
    But then again it is a compound movement AND Im pro cheat AND hammer curl.
