    there's always someone doing more, somewhere, but if you're doing 155 strict form. :bowdown:

    My workout is usually 70x8, 80x6, and 90x4

    I started to go up when I added in hammer curls and reverse curls. Of course not instantly, but within a month or so.

    Truthfully, I don't really care how much I do on BB curl. It's all about form and muscle stimulation. Kids who swing and sway back and forth with 11ty pounds on the bar might as well be doing nothing.

    not on the cable pully bro, we are talking barbell. I can do 45's on the 45 bar (135) for 10 on a GOOD day. How the fuck are you doing 155? I want a vid of this and I mean now. Cause if its true your the fucking bicep king. For once be one of the first to make us eat crow....pretty please

    1) you are thinking of the wrong exercise

    2) i missed the joke

    how can you do that much on BB and only hammer curl this:

    db hammer curls

    30lb x 10 reps x 1 set
    35lb x 10 reps x 1 set
    40lb x 8 reps x 1 set

    (taken from your journal)
