    What do you use for bicep curls? Freeweights or a curling machine? Personally, I find it uncomfortable using a machine for them, so just use plain old dumbells...

    Yup me too. I try and use free weights as much as possible. The curling machines put too much pressure on my triceps when performing them. Might because I'm quite skinny and have poor posture though. Also machines restrict movement too much I find.

    I went for the "I have a Y chromosome" option :p:

    As far as I'm concerned curls aren't worth the extra time I would spend in the gym doing them.

    If I was to, freeweights. Never, EVER machines.

    Although I prefer chinups - like nature intended.

    I don't do curls, but if I did it'd be with free-weights. No idea why anyone would use a machine for them.

    Yeah, I do chinups as well, but if it's raining and I can't run the few miles to the gym, I'll do curls and press ups at home. Machines just seem to mess my forearms up for some reason:confused:

    Bebbs Imma video my squat today so you can fap to it.

    I might try and max out parallel too so I can say I squat 3 plates but I'll have to unlearn ATG which might be hard lol.
