    I used to love reverse curls, but these days I don't bother with them.
    They're not too bad with the EZ bar, holding it where your palms are turned slightly facing eachother, but with a straight bar they're horrible IMO.
    I think if you start to add serious poundage on these your forearms wont like you for it, just ask $AJ.
    It's just not a very natural way of lifting something.

    You're working your Brachioradialis and brachilias. But I think this movement is overrated and you can get serious injuries. I prefer Hammer curls.

    I generally do drag curls (essentially the same idea) with a curl bar at the end and I'll use a lighter weight. Feels pretty good and finishes off the biceps. Does this mean anything or do any good? Hell if I know.

    With a straight bar it works mostly your forearms (tops)-and some brachialis (lower outer upper arm).

    With a curl bar you still get forearm (more concentrated on your brachioradialis) but more outer bicep and brachialis.

    You said you you felt it in your TRICEPS? You may want to consult a physician or psychiatrist or both.....

    Wrong. Reverse curls works the forearms, not the biceps. If you want proof, put your normal curl weight on the bar, and then try to do it with a reverse grip. It's much more difficult, mostly because your biceps are used minimally.

    Suggestion: try doing reverse curls with the EZ-bar, with an inside grip, on the preacher curl 'bench' - I found it to work very well.

    What? Who mentioned biceps? The brachioradialis IS a forearm muscle, and the brachialis is worked anytime elbow flexion occurs.

    Lately I've been doing negative reverse curls. It really hits my forearm near the elbow.

    True, besides:

    http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/excer...rebellcurl.htm

    The reason you can't use a much weight is that the short head of the bi's leverage is reduced, but you still get some bicep action, especially on the outer head (which is a. stretched more (myostatic reflex) and b. pulling in a straighter line)
