    Don't squeeze your hands while curling, try to keep your ringers relaxed and extended if possible so that your ceps to the work and not your forearms.

        Normally yes, you'd want to fully grip whatever you are lifting but if OP isn't feeling his ceps while curling, he must try something different.
        What do you suggest he do to fix this issue?

          Need to know what type of curls anon is doing anyway I would recommend him inclined curls or concentration curls.

          I have the same exact issue as OP. If I do something like preacher curls, barbel curls, or standard dumbbell curls, I feel zero activation in my bicep and 100% of it in my forearm.

          I fix this by using the ez curl bar. Use a very close grip, you want your hands touching in the middle of the bar. Stand straight up, plant your elbows at your waist, and curl from this position. This made me feel my bicep and zero forearm.

            Natural hypertrophy also says he feels it most in his forearm when he does preacher curls, but he still does them and they are his main bicep builder.

          What issue? His forearms are weak. He's lifting. They'll get stronger. Soon enough he'll be able to hold more than his working weight for curls and then his biceps will get stronger. That's just how compounds go. One day you feel it more here, one day you feel it more there.

      How much you're using your forearm won't affect the biceps ability to generate force. You can only "shift" the load to another muscle when they're working together on the same movement plane.

      If OP is feeling his forearms but not his biceps it's because either the forearma are massively underdeveloped or because he's using improper technique that doesn't tatget the biceps effectively.

    You're evidently compensating with forearm muscles instead of relying on your biceps

      Your forearms are weak. Keep doing them.

      Thats a different sensation and different phenomenon. He is not feeling in that way.

                why level in 07?
                I had no interest in 07 because 08 was a launch day patch, 07 was only a sp patch and only on the early discs.

                I don't remember all the reasonings I had for starting out in 1.07 but you can craft something like a +35 MPK ring pretty easily which really helps to get an untwinked character going.

                There are other nice items in 1.07 which you can rack but I can't be bothered to dig up all the stuff. Check them out, there might be something you really want to have in the present patch. Besides, can't go wrong when starting from the very beginning. You can always move the character forward in patches but can't go back in time. Well, that's my ethics anyway.

                I've done more reading than I'd like on old patches. but I already said my reasoning for not considering 07 as anything more than a novelty. I try to treat my sp characters as if they're realm characters, just finely aged. and 07 was never available on realms.

    would you FRICKING homosexualS stop injecting this useless word into every one of your goddamn moron sentences? why the frick do you do it? if you had just typed "I feel curls more in my forearms than on my biceps," do you have any reason to suspect that readers would presume you were speaking ironically? why do you say it all the time? do you think it adds a little flair to your posting? a little more panache? well it doesn't. fricking stop it.
