    Damn, not strict but not the most body english I've seen either. But really what's impressive is just winging them off the rack like that lol. I was just benching the 80s today and pulling them off the rack is the hardest part lol
    Current.....................335 / 285 / 499............183 lbs
    July 1, 2019................9 week cut.................164 lbs

    Getting a little carried away, 80 is nice, but not enough to make a video from. I used to do 110lb back when I was a volume trainer and that wasn't a big deal.

    Watched your older bench vids even though I dislike the powerlifter style of lifting you do have some strength

    What is that yellow band thing for on your older bench?

    In no way am I saying those curls do not count or are cheating or anything like that, but at the same time your elbows come forward a decent amount during them. Thus you are generating some momentum from the front delts. Your torso leans back a bit as well. To some degree this is necessary to counterbalance the weight but at the same time that precludes it from being a really strict lift and makes it hard to compare strictly to anyone else in a competitive manner.

    I feel for comparison purposes using a strict preacher setup would be best for dumbbells where you keep your body in the same position the entire time.

    I fully agree, it’s really hard to be stable with heavy dumbbells on alternating curls. I do those because they are fun for me and I do see some good strength improvement. About once a month I get the easy bar out and do a legitimate strict curl. Back, shoulders, and butt on the wall, heels within one foot of the wall, and knees locked. I can’t remember the head may have to be on the wall too. I think my best was 175lbs but I don’t do it very often, it’s hard on the wrists for me. My wrists hurt for like a week after.

    That is called a slingshot. It is like the in between between raw and a bench shirt. I use it to prevent injury and get my body used to heavier weights. I can not max 455 without it. I can max about 425 right now.

    Pretty much, I think I remember seeing someone do around 100kg with a dumbbell.

    The world record strict curl is 249lbs by Denis Cyplenkov set on December 13th of 2015. This shattered the previous long standing record of 225lbs. Just to be clear, you are saying that you have seen somebody curl 220lbs with one arm, almost breaking the world record set with two arms?

    Strict curl is against a wall and cuts out momentum as well as any front delt imvolvement. As you know, you can use momentum and body English to cheat up a dumbbell curl, so it is possible.

    I watched it a while ago and thought it was kg, but it's imperial. Biggest I found was 136lb on preacher bench, and that's just a casual guy. I'm sure people can do more if it became a srtongman event, I can possibly do more but I don't really want a snapped bicep finding out haha.

    The alternating bicep curl is definitely something that can be cheated easy. It is also easy to tell good form from bad. For instance Kali Muscle has a video of him “curling” 200lb dumbbells, but it looks more like a shoulder shrug. You don’t find many videos of guys curling over 100lb dumbbells with good form though.
