Ok who does them? I was sent an email from a lifter asking how to properly do them so I decided to go ahead a vid them and send them to him. This is how I do mine does anyone do them differently?

You look very strong in the vids Mike, but lean and mean, what's your bodyweight at now?
I do mine alternating, but to the front (like a combination of the first 2 videos). Not very often though.

Alternating cross body and like the first vid. have done these in the past as prehab for stones.
I do mine seated backwards on a preacher bench, keeps me from swinging too much.
I do'em like the 1st video, but I alternate sides. Sometimes I'll do'em with a rope on a low pulley.
I do them just like you do in the 2nd link.

...I mimic your first video, with the exception that my ROM is larger. I go until the butt end of the dumbbell touches my shoulder. Is this not proper?
OK just what I was looking for, seems as if we all got our own little variations on this exercise. Now the reason I asked was be cause this guy told me that he was basicly doing them like the 1st video but had a guy tell him he was doing them wrong. BUT the guy never offered to show him how to do them properly. So that is why he emailed me and that is why I asked for everyone elses thoughts and views on how to do them.
Thanks guys!!! Guess the best advice to give him is to do them how ever he feels like he is getting the most out of them. I really like doing them bentover I feel as if I get the most out of them like that, so that is how I mostly do them.

90* just means you're halfway there to becoming a man!
You are looking good!
Ok, I do them more or less like you do in the first video. I will alternate arms sometimes. I haven't really done them regularly in a long time, but I think it is time to begin doing so again.

i do them same as the first, but alternating, and with less weight
Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

all I know is Wolf is lifting to good old Rod Stewart in the third video!
I do mine one arm at a time on the preacher bench and also alternating arms while seated on incline bench. keeps you going heavy with no cheating.

Personally Wolfe, I think this thread is just an excuse to show off your new physique. Looking good man! Whats the weight at now?
And yeah curls are curls. Do them whatever way gives you the most gains. Its not like deadlift or bench where if you're not doing them a certain way you'll hurt yourself.

CHINUPS - Bodyweight + 135, x1, dead hang. Still working on the one arm chinup.
I like how you turn your head to each bicep while you're doing alternating curls.
