    i curled 75 lbs. relatively easy back in the day...

    you can curl more than half of a two-arm with a one-arm though...i bet there are some members on this board that could curl over 100 fairly easily.

    ^^ I bet you're right. If done up to 60's (by no means recently) and I've never really considered myself "strong".

    Seems good for practical strength. When do you ever need to curl something with your back against a wall?

    On that note, when do you ever really need to curl anything....

    I wouldn't be using my arms in a curling motion....I can gurantee I would deadlift it.

    Also, that doesn't address the impracticiality of a strict curl.

    well yeah i would deadlift it to, i guess practical curls arent worth much, but they built strong arms, and we want a strong body dont we? lol

    dont give me the compounds built strong arms either, you need some direct work, i dont care who you are, your not benching 600 with no tricep training.

    Yeah I don't think anyone should tell Bertil Fox, he form is off!
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold
