    I don't know but if ur doing it properly then you should definately be feeling your biceps. Have u just started training? Maybe ur triceps are still very weak that's why u feel them. try lowering the weight

    I feel some strain in them as well, especially at first.

    Switching to strict dumbell curls fixed this

    Try bringing your elbows in (tuck right into body) and maybe use and EZ bar

    I have to say, i've never felt any kind of stimulation on the tricep when doing bi curls.

    have a look at this link mate, shows propper form for bi curls.

    PS. do you use a straight bar or a 'curved' EZ bar?

    If you use a straight bar.

    When you are on the negative part of the movement, bring the back of the hands all the way down to the top of the quads, this will get a good stretch in the biceps and then perform the following reps required.
