    i have always done BB before DB - it just seems to work better this way but I dont know the explanation of why.

    I have always found that a single limb movement allows for greater concentration and contraction...perhaps this has something to do with it.

    Biceps are the only thing that doesn;t have set exercises each week, purely because i couldn;t give a rats ass, so for that reason i kinda agree with gopro.

    Doesn't really matter what you do for Biceps. It's a weird muscle. It responds do so many of the exercises in similar ways. I just do whatever.
    It's like I'm a juicer... but I'm not.

    I do any exercise that keeps the tension high on the bicep all the way through the exercise. ie no preacher curls.
    i go for chris mason when he says about using a straight bar over E-Z bar as it keeps the tension on the bicep better at the bottom of the movement due to the wrist grip.

    Hunter S. Thompson is a famous writer. I wrote my senior project in college about him. There have been several movies about him, 1 with Bill Murray playing him and the other with Johny Depp as him. Those are 2 pretty big stars here in the United States.
