In one of the vid's comment section, he talked about doing 10-12 sets of bicep work-LOL.

What's so funny about doing 10-12 sets of bicep work?
Do you have a physique as good as his?
The guy obviously knows his stuff.
and i quote
"You're going to concentrate on the contraction, you don't have to let it go all the way up. It's just a conctraction."
whatever happened to full ROM?

Basically the guy in the video doesnt use full ROM. There are better things out there
there are those that talk the talk and those that walk the walk, i have more respect on those people that been there done that.
Siff, Zatsiorsky, and Lyle McD
and it makes me laugh that they are not respected by some because they didn't/don't "walk the walk"

Ok... nothing wrong with not using full ROM on the first bicep curls. Ever heard of TUT? Time under tension is basically what he is doing. It works, no question about it.
He does know what hes doing IMO, he does have a great body and is innovative in how he hits his biceps. What if he doesn't want to be huge? Fine. But he is quite lean and has packed some muscle.
His legs are a bit small IMO, but still better than most people like him.

BFguitar took most of what i wanted to post. i think he meant dont go nuts trying to move the bar, focus on squeezing the bicep's which is a good point for beginners.
what was the original point of posting this? were we supposed to make fun of this guy? he seems alright for a certain group of people. (aka more the bodybuilding.com crew and less the strongman competition crew)

I would never remove isolation movements personally.
Definition is generally not in the realm of working out but rather dieting. Your don't curl (or do any exercise) for definition.

I made the comment I did because the guy in the video has exactly the physique I'm aiming for - we all have different goals, some want to be huge, some want to be immensely strong. Me, I just wanna look great and be considerably stronger than I am now.
Compounds are the best, but I'm too vain to ever stop doing isolations.
Also I don't understand this criticism about ROM, he says in the video that he deliberately isn't doing a full ROM, so he knows the difference, plus on the second exercise, the lying bicep curl he does do full ROM, so he is doing a mix of both.
