Re: What's so dumb about curls?

Curls/cheat curls with 40% or more of BW do become compound as you have to stabilze your knees/hips/spine etcetc. At that level they become "full body".

It bitty pink dumbell level - not so much.

Id view them as similar to (but lesser then) the benchpress. A move that has a place if only hugely overrated by most "nonathletes" in the fitness world.
The live drill is violent, it's sudden and chaotic, it's over before you've even got started and you're never prepared for what happens....welcome to fighting - Mick Coup
