The EZ Curl Bar is accepted because it tends to feel more natural and more comfortable on the wrists and elbows. So a lot of people will opt for that when doing curls.
However, if you are a bodybuilder than your main goal is NOT to be “comfortable”…
It’s to form the Biggest Baddest Biceps that you can!
And that’s why I approve using the straight bar for your bicep curls. Granted it’s a little more cumbersome, but it will stimulate the biceps to a more valuable degree.
To demonstrate you what I mean, just bend your arm at a 90 degree angle right now while you are reading this blog post. Now without tensing your arm, just revolve your wrist back and forth, so that the palm of your hand is facing sideways and then facing up towards the ceiling… Just do that a few times back and forth.
What happened to your biceps? Chances are you could carefully observe your arms “peaking” as you twisted your palm up towards the ceiling. Just the simple action of rotating your wrist all the way, also known as supinating your wrist, causes your biceps to contract.
So to get the most bang for your buck when doing bicep curls stick to the straight bar, ratherin this article than the EZ curl bar. Yes, it may feel a bit uncomfortable at first, and you may have to lighten the load a little early on, but the size you gain on your arms will be well worth the energy in the long run!
