I have no issues with people suggesting compounds such as chin-ups as the better exercise, if a person is able to do them, but to suggest that curls shouldn't be done until chin-ups can be accomplished is like throwing out the baby with the bath water.

We're not all fit/healthy enough to be able to do chin-ups, so curls have to suffice, in that instance.
And, I agree, of course, young lady. Individual particulars and circumstances, dictate what is done, and this trumps all things that are or may be deemed traditional.

Good post.
