    the redpill is that biceps arent meant to be trained in isolation, do chin ups or rows

      Pain is because it’s a straight bar, just use EZ bar or dumbbells.

      Chin ups aren’t that great for biceps, found it out the hard way

        big biceps are unaesthetic on natties. if you're natty just do compounds for a balanced physique.

          big biceps are never unaesthetic unless they're synthol.

      How the fuck do I hold it then? I put my middle finger on the markings. My left forearm is completely fine, I thought I was holding in a way where it would put more weight on my right side but it's not the case.
      I tried putting my left middle finger in the marking and my right pinky on the marking to feel less my right forearm but it still hurts.

        Chances are this is coming after a history of not treating the curl for what it is which is an isolation exercise so you've gotten weak at the bottom of the motion. This is one of those moves where time under tension does you more favors than going up in weight

        You could improve your form by reducing the weight. If you can't even lift the bar with proper form just stick to EZ bar curls, dumbbell bicep curls or a bicep curl machine at your gym. (Those are the only options my gym offers but there might be other alternatives)

      I used bandages to keep my wrist straight but still hurt.
      >you don't know how to use bandages
      I used to use them all the time in MT practice.

    Machine flys with bicep activation (arms curved instead of straight).
    Do one set with both arms then one set unilateral but push the handle beyond your chest and towards your opposite shoulder. Turn your head to the arm that is doing the pushing while you let your arm take your whole body, like your throwing a hook punch.
    Do it fast, hold at the extension, then control the return.
    You should go heavy in these as there is no risk for your forearms or tendons.
    Do it and thank me later.

    Try using EZ bar like other anon mentioned or put your back against a wall or other straight plane and really focus on perfecting the form
