Turns that I can reverse curl as much as I can bicep curl normally... At least when using a barbell my bicep curl is 1:1 to my reverse curl, when using a dumbell is more like 4/5...
Do why do we bicep curl really? Think about it, every other exercise is done in pronated position not supinated.
Deads, rows, pull ups, cleans, snatches, squats, front squats, bench... All that stuff is done in pronated position.
So why is it suggested to do bicep curls but never reverse curls, actually reverse curls are considered "futility" but why exactly?
People suggest that it's just a stupid exercise to isolate small insignificant muscles, but if I can bicep curl 45kg x 5 times on a barbell with pronated and supinated grips as well, does this mean that my small insignificant muscles are as strong as my biceps or that there's basically no muscular differences in the exercise?
But looking around the internet turns out I'm not a mutant, and actually most people can indeed reverse curl as much as they bicep curl.
So why are reverse curls never in any program?
