Give me one practical reason why someone should work biceps outside of chinups, rows, and deadlifts??
Curls are literally useless and just for you fuccbois who lift for girls. Stay cucked nu-males
I used to think this but they help train muscles used for weighted chin ups and rows. ez bar preacher curls are pretty sweet. They help with tucking your elbows in for pulling movements and seem to put your joints in the least danger compared to other curl variations. They are accessories though.
>Curls are literally useless
Respect, and peace, OP, you are right.
However note that bicep work is often unavoidable when doing certain other exercises, like rows, so they get developed whether you intended to or not.
That being said most people should do work that develops triceps, they're at least as useful as biceps and often get ignored.
Depends on the person (and heavily on their form/proportions/etc). Some people need a ton of isolation work to balance everything out, some need only a little bit and a few can get away with none.
My cousin competes nationally and internationally in powerlifting. She had the same, "lol why would I train biceps, I dont need them to be strong" thought process you have. Then she got tendinitis from having triceps that were too much stronger than biceps, which set her training on her bench press back significantly. Train your biceps, you need them.
Curls are excellent for elbow health. That's a fact. If you're serious about lifting, you're doing yourself a disservice, if you aren't doing regular isolation work for your elbow flexors.
Also, some people (usually those with a great mind-muscle connection to their backs) don't get a lot of arm stimulation from compound exercises and will need to do some isolation work in order not to have a weak link.
Also, if you think that looking good can't actually be practical then I've got news for you, pal.
