    Default Bicep Curls and Moment

    Because the moment arm is largest for a barbell curl when the arm is parallel to the ground, and muscles may exert the most force from their rested length...
    Should we perform our curls with a slight layback?

    Like a Curl 2.0?

    It's unavoidable if the weight is heavy enough to make gainz.

    I think they are an excellent way to develop elbow problems. The stable distal arm makes the bicep control the load by itself, without any of its bro arm muscles gettin its back, dog.

    I actually popped a (I think) floating rib once doing barbell curls. This immediately ended my quest for a pump.

    Slight layback?! You need to lay back all the way back down to the horizontal bench! Bench-curl rules!
