Quick question, /fit/.

Do these curls build something BESIDES biceps? Is it worth doing them at all in my routine?

Asking because after 8 months I haven't seen much change doing them as opposed to doing something else.

I do them because otherwise I look lanky and dyel. The only use I've found for them other than bigger arms is in opening windows that slide upward

I know what it does, it's just not doing what it's supposed to.

>>34503227
This is what I need.

With how much weight do you guys do it?

I started with 30 kilos, now I'm nearing 60. 8 reps per set, 5 sets.

>>34503228
That's useful though.

It's 55kg. But I've worked on construction parallel to college for five years, they tend to make you work your arms.

>>34503297
This is exactly what I mean.

>>34503189
if curls are only hitting your biceps then your form sucks
stop swinging the weights you faggot
>>
>>34503189
most people curl too heavy, and end up hip driving the damn thing, the come on /fit/ raging about still being lankatron after 9 years of lifting

for a change of pace, try one arm db hammer curls, and focus on keeping your body rigid so you can isolate your arm movements
