Let's assume that I'm more interested in building than athletic strength;
What you are implying (or maybe I'm simply inferring) is that my curls are not sufficiently isolating the biceps?
I could perhaps utilise this loading (or slightly less, given my form in the vid) but in a seated position, to reduce the 'throwing' of the dumbbell?
Don't get me wrong ILL, I like the depth you went to with the list of exercises that assist with athletic strength. But, on inspection, I think I have most of them covered with my present 4 dayer.
