    I don't even know what the **** you're asking. Do you want to know what every person here curls so you have something to compare to or are you asking how much one should be curling?

    If it's the former, you're a homo. Go away.

    If it's the latter, you should use as much weight that allows you to only be able to do about 5-7 reps ish. Give or take.

    Bicep curling is not a goal. If it is a goal, it has to be the most useless homo pathetic goal I've ever heard of. Pick a real exercise to focus on; one that accounts for actual real life strength.

    why is it pathetic? you cna only lift a weight your strong enough for, thats like me saying i saw some1 clean and press 120kg but i can only do 60/70kg max so thats pathetic. I can only lift what i can lift...

    like i said before, you do your weight and progress as you get stronger what other people lift is meaningless as everyone is different and some people are stronger on different muscle groups

    dome some real strength excerises clean and press, deadlifts, bench press squats cus curls dont actaually build strength!

    no real gym bunny respects a bicep curl weight.

    you want to be taken seriously, ask for squat, bench and OH press numbers.

    bicep curls are uneccessary, get over yourself and start doing rows.

    I think you mean "gym rat" - you're combining that with "cardio bunny". And when it comes to the big three you ask for to get an idea of someone's strength, it's squat, bench and deadlift. I don't think people are particularly aware of their OH press 1RM.

    Bicep curls do have their place, but are generally abused. If you find that your bicep strength is a weakpoint, they can be a handy accessory exercise to target them, but they shouldn't be a serious focus. For a relatively new trainnee they are pretty unnecessary as they should be focusing exclusively on the big lifts to build basic strength.

    Lift as much as you can with good form and forget what others do. If you really want to know what people curl be more specific - are you talking dumbbell preacher curls, concentration curls etc... it all makes a difference.
