    With my piss-poor flexibility and constant tricep tendonitis I can only use an ez bar for bis and tris. Man up as much as you can for the big lifts as they deliver the most gains but try not to overthink assistance work. That's why its only assistance work.

    A fully supinated hand makes sure the biceps are worked, straight bar for me, when curling.

    My thoughts on the curl is that you don't need much, you don't need to do set upon set.

    Placing the hand at the angle that the ez curl bar creates and over doing the exercise is going to ruin your elbow, hello arthritis.

    Sets of two done with very heavy weight on a standard bar is all is needed for most.
    IMO

    Personally I like a wider bar in my hands (cooer missus) and prefer the workout in my wrists of the oly during curls or crushers.

    I can totally see how bad wrists could ruin your day on it though.

    EZ Curl Bar was designed to make curling easier on the wrists. You will activate more major bicep work with a straight bar using a narrow grip. When you use the ez bar you are activating your brachialis muscle which lies underneath the biceps, so the biceps get less work with the ez bar.

    I used to squat with a rubber foam thing as well, nowadays i don't go near it cause i want to feel the bar on my back and my back muscles are big so the bar doesn't hurt at all, sits there and i can't feel a thing.

    Any other advantages to ez curl?
    EZ Bar can be used for Skull Crushers, works great for this exercise.
