What would you consider a "good" weight for dummbell bicep curls?
In your opinion what would be a respectable weight for dummbell bicep curls, for a young male in a 3x10 exercise?
I've asked this other places, and I've just gotten vauge responces that didn't answer the question. Yes, I realize everyone is diffirent and there is no specific normal, blah blah blah... heard it all before.
I just want to hear your opinion on this question. Or if you don't have one, how much could you lift in this exercise? (with a dummbell, not a barbell.) thanks.

For a seasoned trainer or someone who frequents the gym, you're looking at 10 to 15 kilos each. Even that can be a struggle.
I hope this has helped you a bit!
I do 40's and than 45's for hammercurls
I think thats good :-)
yeah, my goal is to do the 3x10 exercise for bicep curls and wrist curls with a 40 pound dummbell. Right now I use a 30 pound one, not incliding the bar and stuff.
I find this one of the hardest lifts, in terms of I can't lift very much weight doing them when keeping good form.
I've only been back in the gym a short while really, but it's always been an area i've been disappointed with my strength.
Of course it's all relative to what you can lift, as long as you work the muscles enough it doesn't matter if you're lifting half of what the guy next to you is, you have to use a weight suitable for your strength and goals.
Thats a very hard question to answer. a good weight would be the weight where you are struggling for the last 3 or so reps on your last set of the 3x10. A better weight is when you add more for the next workout.
People go to the gym to be "curl warriors"? How many muscles do you use in the bicep curl and how many do you use in the deadlift or squat for example?
I do not understand why every forum relating to physical exercise is populated mostly by people who can't answer questions.

Reason: He used "homosexuals" in a derogatory way. I removed it.
Jojo3000, the reason the posters in "quality" forums will call you out for being a "bicep boy" is because only noobs and ignorant teenagers go around different forums asking how much people can bicep curl.
Someone with the understanding of a 10 yr old should understand that biceps are very small muscles, you should be working on compound movements. Is this too much for noobs to understand?
So it upsets you that I asked a question about an exercise other than bench pressing? Wow. Why don't you get upset at all the people that post about that exercise?
I'm done wasting my time on this homosexual forum.
As further proof this forum is homosexual, simply look at the unique emoticons avaliable here.
Hey karky, I said homosexual again. Do your worst. I don't wish to waste any more time at this gay chat room.
I didn't know a forum could be homosexual. You obviously have some issues you need to take care of.. being that you think of forums as items engaging in sexual behaviour.
stay and hang around jojo
theres lots of good info here
It's a place for opinion, if some people think your question is dumb they are welcome to think that. I personally didnt mind the question but it is what it is. THE INTERNET my man
