    First: What is the benefit of incline seated dumbell curls as opposed to standing dumbell curls if any?

    Second: For bench press, should I go from doing a good amount of weight for 10 reps/4 sets....to about ~6-8reps/4sets with alittle more weight?

    It takes body movement out of the equation, and forces you to use your bi's only.

    I would, 40 reps is fairly high.

    Depends on your goals, but switching it up would help anyways.

    From what I've read, 8 reps is the minimum for hypertrophy and if you're a noob you should be doing sets of 10-12 for maximum benefit.
