I don't know everything but being an exercise physiologist allows me to have a little info so he goes, I don't know anyone that would rather do D-curls instead of barbell curls for muscle size. Later on in lifting yes but not for a couple years. It just doesn't allow the muscle enough stimulation to grow to it's fullest. Sorry but that's my 2 cents. Hell I've been lifting for years and still prefer barbell to D's. Stick with the basics and you can't lose.
