    I stumbled across this when finding myself in some need of some more arm/ shoulder work.

    Simply curl a heavy wiegth and continue from the top of the curl and do a arnold press.

    and ofcourse always low rep and heavy :icon_twis

    This kind of reminds me of some of the exercise complexes I have stumbled across, like a snatch/overhead squat combo.

    Ya or hammer curls. Also, Urban may have said it best in another thread about trying to do bicep curls after doing some heavy-ass sets of weighted chins.

    Still gay, unless you can curl your Arnold press 5 rep max. I know I can't.

    Yeah, I'm with the coach on this one. But I like the creativity, Yomon.

    Whatever, you have to do curls, gay or not. If you don't you're asking for injury. Hell, even powerlifters and strongmen do curls. Hammer Curls are definitely the way to go (since I only do one bicep exercise).

    I admit there was a time when i did curls, but have to do them I think not. I am sure my biceps get plenty of work on weighted pull ups or one of the rowing exercises.

    Yes, and the relative strength of tricep:bicep is 1:1.

    The muscles that require assistance lifts for injury prevention are those where a natural imbalance occurs.

    So no, I don't agree, you don't have to do curls to prevent injury.

    thats why i stared doing curls. My triceps are getting much stronger then my biceps, tearing a bicep deadlifting would suck.

    In that case, you should. This imbalance probably arose out of your lifting program. So lift to fix it. Makes sense, Yomon.

    Besides, you do handstand push-ups between chairs. Anyone who calls you gay can suck MY DICK.

    Strength or size to be exact?

    And can their strength numbers be directly related and compared like Curls to French press?

    Or does it have to be certain exercises that you need to do for direct comparsion?

    Strength.

    I don't know how they measured the relative strengths, exactly, that's a good question, I've just read seen the numbers in my NSCA book.

    How about your muscle imbalance?

    That's size right?
