I work my biceps on shoulder days, since I don't think they're getting enough from all my other coumpound excercises through the week. Anways, when i get to my last set, I have to kinda bend back a little and use a little bit of momentum to get the weight up. I know this is bad form, and it's bad for my back. Doing curls with bad form is worse than doing any at all, right? I'm gonna try something different so I know I can keep perfect form. I just wanted to make sure though.
lower the weight until you can get good form.
That's what I figured. I can do perfect form 95% of the time, it's just my las set I have trouble with because I'm drained. I guess if I have perfect form I'll gain faster anyways.
If you are leaning back on the last couple of reps in your last set then it's not too bad. However, if you are leaning back and using momentum for all the reps in your last set I would lower the weight a bit in order to keep your form tight.
Cheating a little on your last reps of your last set is pretty common and nothing to worry about.

Bench - 286
deadlift - new pr on the 23/12/06 190 kilo (430 pound)
squat - 264 ATF
200 pound at 10% bf by next summer
Just lower the weight or dont do those reps. When its all back and momentum it doesnt hit the bi's anyways it just ****s up your bakc.
I don't think it would be so bad to cheat a little bit. Especially if you work the negative well.
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
