Hi guys just a quick vid of me curling 75kg / 165lbs. I like to do a vid every so often so i can track my progress i find it much better than doing notes. Anyway this is not my heaviest and i still had 3 more to go, i end on a single rep of 90kg / 200lbs.

On the bar there is either side: 20kg , 10kg, 2.5kg plates = 32.5kg x2 = 65kg plus the bar and locks (10kg), total 75kg/ 165lbs.

Strong regardless but you use too much body motion.

Your a big looking boy thats for sure! I'm sure you'll cop flak for not starting from a 'deadhang' so to speak, whatever works for you.

That is strong. But yeah...I'd hate to see what 200# looked like. Your biceps did nothing for half of the movement!

Strong, but form wasn't so great. Looks like you're using predominantly back/shoulders to hoist it up.

Doesn't matter that it wasn't the correct technique. Or let's rephrase. I don't care. The fact is that even doing curls like that with that weight is damn hard to do.
back to the squats and deads now though ;)

Thanks for all the comments guys, i know my technique isn't great but i always train heavy as my main goal is to build strength. My form stays pretty much the same all the way through i obviously just loose a couple reps each time i go heavier.

I think i could do better form if i done arms fresh but i train them after doing close to an hour for back (lat pulldown, seated row, single dumbell rows) and i train until i reach my max on each so bit tired by the time i get to arms.

Will try get a couple vids up on here tomorrow of my heavier sets :)

Very strong. Nothing wrong with your form, it looks perfectly fine to me.

moving alot of weight...yes but it doesn't look like you are maximizing the lift at all.

Stand against a wall when you do your curls. It will keep you from using your back. Nice lift regardless

Thanks for all the comment guys, my right right arm is slightly bigger than my left by a 1/4'' but my right measures 19.5'' pumped or just over 19'' relaxed. I've been doing arm curling this way for a few years now and has added a few inches to my arms and upped the weight a fair bit. My whole routine consists of starting heavy at around 10 reps then upping the weight each set until i reach the maximum i can lift for 1-2 reps.

The weight is pretty impressive for that movement, but Why exactly would you want to curl that much weight? It serves no function.. correct me if i'm wrong

I train entirely for strength, i want to get into various strength competitions so i eat lots and lift heavy.
