Biceps

Aright guys, just a quick question, are ez bar curls and barbell curls just as effective as each other? or one better than the other?

thanks

    Apparently, Ez curl bar isolates the bicep, which I think is Bs. But the upside is that if your wrists hurt with straight bar curls, Ez curls may not put the same stress on your wrist and vise versa. If your wrists still have the same stress with both, use dumbells

    Such subtlities are irrelevant amoungst the beginner IMO. How intense you train and diet are much more important factors.

    do whatever places the least or no strain on your wrist.

    after say 2 sets on straight curl, i feel a slight strain on my wrist, when i feel this, i finish my bicep routine with 1 or 2 sets of ez bar curl. i try not to do more than 3 sets of 10-12, just keep it intense and make sure your elbows are tight next to your side, when you reach the top, theres no need to lift the bar up so you can rest it in a position under your neck. at the top, the bar should end up say about 5-7 inches from the top of your chest, keep there for a sec, then return to start position. for super strict form, do this against a wall or a bench, but in the bench, put some weights behind it because youll find yourself moving it back.

    ive seen too many guys do heavy weights on curls but with utter crap form. then when i do mine, they see my form, next time i come into the gym, i see that theyve decreased the weight and started to do curls against the wall or leaning against one side of the squat rack

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
    There is no room for junk food in any diet whatsoever, leave the junk in the bin.
