I had a really complex statement about efficient use of time and working multiple muscles vs. isolation movements, but it ended up sounding silly to me.

In the end, I think that chins are a better overall strength builder AND a better biceps strength builder than curls, and I think that the efforts made to first be able to perform chins and then increase the number you can do will serve you far better then doing any curl movements. I know I sound like I've drank the anti-curl koolaid, but that isn't the case. I think they have their place, but I also think a beginner's gym time can be better spent.

For the record, Chillen, I understand your points and don't necesarily disagree.
