EZ bar standing up vs. Station


Recommended Posts

And now i know the right term.Thanks!

Haha that may or may not be the right term. Just how I know it. The great part about it is that it really limits your ability to use momentum

It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he'll look for his own answers.

Anyone can love a thing because. That's as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.

They do subtly different things. The standing EZ curl is compoundish, using the biceps, brachialis, and somewhat front delts, while requiring the abs, erectors, and glutes to stabilize you. The preacher curl forces you into isolation, allowing only the biceps and brachialis to move the weight. You are guarantted to move more weight standing, and guaranteed to get a sicker pump on the preacher bench, or incline bench, or doing concentration curls.

So it might be a good idea to alternate between the two?

It depends on your goals. If you want the perfect peak in your biceps, you'll want to hit them from every angle, and in strict isolation. If you're using the curl as an assistance to getting stronger, you'll want almost every exercise you do to be at least "compound-ish," as EE has so eloquently called it. Just ask yourself why you're doing them, and do the form(s) that help you reach your goals. 

 

I still think you should just do weighted chins and pull-ups, but your goals are probably a bit different.

How you curl is irrelenvent. The fact that you curl is what is important. Do them all and see which one gives you the sickest pump. When you're actually starting to grow, pick one to do for a few weeks, then rotate. Find out what makes you big. Think of this as an exercise in learning what works for you. It will be very important later when you are done tapping out dem gainz from Stronglfits.

If you are sitting you can't do the cool bro swing- so make sure you stand.

 

I curl about 3 times a year- but when I do so standing. 

 

 

 

 

edit- I don't curl much- I do chin up pull ups for my arms.  I haven't done an isolation curl in about six months.... still get awkward comments about zez guns.

I prefer standing as I can really whip my hips and turn it into a full body, compound movement. It also lets me handle about twice the weight, and more weight is always better.

Edit: to be clear, I am kidding. I do them standing, but minimize body English. I prefer the preacher bench, I just don't have one.

 The old reverse-grip hang clean. It is a classic.
