    The muscle under the bi is the coracobrachialis, given its name because of its proximal insertion at the coracoid process of the scapular. Its role is flexion of the arm, it has some week adducting abilities also. I don't see any real reason that hammer curls would target this muscle. Possibly he could also meen the Brachilalis, it is responsible for flexion of the elbow. Perhaps he thinks that this muscle acts to cancel the forearm supination caused by biceps but it is unaffected by any pronation/supination of the forearm

    I understand this just fine, but think you're a tool for using this type of language considering most people like the "POSTER" get 0 out of it. :greddy:

    Actually the muscle known as Biceps Brachii is the superfical muscle of the humerus and it is able to flex when the forearm is supine (when the palm of your hand faces up). Brachialis is the major forearm flexor (bends arm at elbow) and is deep to the Biceps Brachii. Brachialis would therefore be used more appropriately when the forearm is not in the supine position, and thus hammer curls would target Brachialis (the bigger of the two muscles) to a greater extent.

    I disagree, in both flexion with supination of forearm and semi-pronation, the Brachialis is equally recruited, just the biceps arent recruited with supination. It is inserted at the ulna which hardly moves in supination

    And if you guys dont like my posts, then ok I won't answer people any more
