Pls don't tell me 100lbs EZ bar curls for 10 reps is the average for any gym goer Posted on April 22, 2023 by Anonymous I barely curl 77lbs but bench 290lbs.
nah dude I can bench 305 and I can probably only ez curl the 90 for a clean 10 i doubt i could do 100 with strict form.
Not sure if extremely subtle trolling or genuine post
Since we are all bench bros here: You guys think that bench is a shitty triceps builder?
Yeah, triceps are the secret to a big bench. No one will tell you this however.
you guys are all trolling right? im
why are the numbers so different?
Currently I curl 60lbs for a set of 12. After that I get 12, then 10, 10 with some dodgy form.
idk 185 or so maybe 200lbs tops.
Dude I bench almost 100lbs more yet curl only 17lbs more. Fuck compounds. I just drive volume through isos.
Curls are my favorite movement and I have an arm day.... so yeah it should be better.
For some reason I really enjoy going to 100% failure and they respond well.
I also do them first. I bet if you guys wanted to 100+lb curls are doable.
my triceps are weak. Currently I am doing more bench, but on my arm day I do pushdowns to failure, ez bar lying overhead extension+ ez bar cgbp.
Seems to be working, but I have a long ass way to go.
you do you.
Your telling me CGB and chins are not enough for arms?
Can we drop that meme exercise already? Chin ups give you enough bicep work.
>t. calesthenic biceplet
>nooooooooo I need to justify all the years I’ve wasted on this meme lift
Been a while since I seen this much cope
I fell for the "hehe chinups are enough for biceps meme!" for ages and now my biceps are one of my worst bodyparts. I got close to lmao2pl8 for reps and I still had fucking 14" arms. I started actually focusing on curls and pushing progression and hey presto, my biceps are growing again. Funny how that works
To everyone lurking ITT, please do your fucking curls if you want to have big biceps. Chinups are amazing for lats, but they're poor for biceps. Just do both so you don't end up like me
Cinups and curls work the biceps in very different ways. They are both useful.
>t. tiny arms
Chinups are primarily a back exercise, not a bicep exercise. Just do curls for biceps ffs, that's literally the only thing they're for
Chin ups are garbage for biceps
i did 2 sets of 8 reps with 40kg ez curl bar today
switched to 35kg for the last set cause too tired
40kg - 88lbs
35kg - 77lbs
not far off mate
the bicep strength standards on some website are strangely inflated, or maybe im coping and just weak but im not far from a 3pl8 bench yet i cant even curl 9O lbs for 6 reps i think
i barbell curl 75 and bench 155 for reps. am i just a fucking compoundlet?
