    Default EZ Curl bar for pansies?

    So basically I'm new to bodybuilding and just wondering what the general consensus is with the EZ Curl bar, is it for pussies? If so then I won't get one and stick with the barbell

    At my local gym my trainer made me use a thick foamy thing on my upper back for squatting, but after i read that it's for pussies i immediately stopped using it and am squatting fine without it and no pain after I got used to it.

    Some people find barbell curls to be hard on the wrist and/or forearm and the hand positioning on an ez curl bar sometimes alleviates this. If you don't have a problem with barbell then it is fine to stick with that

    Any other advantages to ez curl?

    No curl bars do have a use. Curling decent weights with a straight bar is very hard on the wrists unless you have quite a wide grip. They are also awesome for close grip bench for the same reason. There is no point damaging your wrists just to be a hard bastard.

    Yeah what bigd said, ez bar is fine if you have specific problems which result from using a straight bar, don't think it the same as using the pad for sqatting though...

    Curling on an straight bar rapes my elbows. Ez bar is the goods.

    Wouldn't even consider skulls with the 7ft oly bar.

    Nothing wrong with an Ez bar. Your wrists will thank you.

    Yeah if I do curls it's curl bar or dumbbells. Straight bar doesn't feel right.
