I guess I am just not convinced that curling a 70lbs DB or whatever you use, is anything like the force of a 700+lbs deadlift with a non-straight arm.
Cant hurt I suppose.
Im a little paranoid about tearing a bicep as ive seen it happen a few times as well. Just gotta get the double overhand grip up to par! haha.

and curls and rows won't eliminate a bicep tear, but if you strengthen that bicep tendon its going to be harder to tear it.
i've seen plenty of bicep tears that didn't have a thing to do with hitching. its the heavy weight.

I have seen alot of guys not lock their arms fully at the start of the deadlift, and try to "yank" the bar up. That's a perfect time for a biceps tear. Also, some guys do try to use their arms to pull the weight up, instead of back and legs. The arms are supposed to be "hooks, or levers," per se.
