Greg,

I definitely understand that most arm flexion is done while not handling a lot of weight. However, that doesn't bode well as a going against the exercise.

If I used that same theory for the pull-up, then it would probably make sense to never do them, because through out a persons everyday life I'm sure they flex their arms a lot more then they ever move their body in a pull-up motion, if they ever do.

I for one probably hardly ever use a pull-up motion in my everyday life, but I love to do them and think they are great for my overall fitness.

Just so people understand I am not pro-bicep or con-bicep exercises. I figured it would be interesting to hear actual theories on why some don't choose to do them.

Jason
