"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"

of weight training. Something

The New Bodybuilding for

MUCH of that "something."

My favorite biceps machine is made by MedX... or, at least, my favorite is the one that Jim Flanagan's gym he had for himself in some office-space in 1995 that appeared identical to the MedX brochure. It was there that I also tried THE VINTAGE NAUTILUS COMPOUND BICEPS, the one where both arms are working, which was fun, but I had the set of my life on the MedX Biceps.

My least favorite biceps machine is made by HammerStrength that makes the load feel like it's in my palms,

I only used Jim's single seat Nautilus Compound Position Bicep machine once last year. As I stated in another thread, it was the best biceps workout I ever had. Immediate pump. Sore and STILL PUMPED THE NEXT DAY. I now have the double seat version and love it. Second place would be the Nautilus Plate loaded biceps/triceps machine.

Multi bi done alternating arm with restraint bar in place is my favorite.

The best exercise for the biceps is the dead lift

I wouldn't put a dumbell in the 'Biceps Machine' category, but that's just me.

I disagree, the deadlift is not a good biceps exercise, and most power lifters focus on reducing biceps from the movement to reduce the risk of biceps tears.

My favorite machine is my "new" compound bicep, followed by the multi biceps. I also have a plate load bi/tri and I hate the bicep movement but love the tricep when I put a small cambered bar on the pads to grip.

Nor would I ( hence the irony ) , are you inferring the dumbell is inferior to a machine for training the biceps ? ... If so what universal proof have you of the machines superiority.

Go ahead, you responded anyways.

Just giving you a little razzing, you've earned it. Gotta have a little fun around here, it gets a little dry sometimes.

DEADLIFT & BICEPS.....

If the person that mentioned DEADLIFT was being serious, then the merit in that person's response, from my experience, is the pull-sensation upon the biceps with an underhanded-grip particularly. I have wondered if the biceps become too unloaded in most machines due to the way the bottom-out of the movement-arm is designed; HENCE, cables and free-weights might be a better option for the biceps in that the tension is constant. The following picture is what I have envisioned might be an adequate design, which is from the StrengthEquipment.net website.

FORGOT TO SAY: While I can only speculate that DEADLIFT provides an indirect-effect to the biceps, I would NOT go as far to recommend it. Besides, the legs are better served by training them without grip, but I do endorse what I named, THE GRIPLESS DEADLIFT, where a padded shoulder-strap is slung behind the neck & over-the-shoulders down below to where the barbell would normally be gripped for deadlifting.

POSTSCRIPT TO MY LAST RESPONSE:

For the above reasons, I have in the past said that canvas-bags make for a great workout, cheaper than kettlebelles. The canvas-bags that I mention can be purchased for mere dollars at Walmart, or Hobby Lobby, but hold 4 10-pound plates each, easily, although I also recommend double-bagging them, which translates into FOUR BAGS to be purchased.


((((( THE PICTURE ISN'T THE TYPICAL BAG THAT I'M REFERRING TO, BECAUSE MOST CANVAS-BAGS HAVE HANDLES ALSO MADE OF CANVAS, WHICH IS WHY I SAY TO DOUBLE-BAG THEM. )))))

Never had access to a Nautilus or MedEx, so my favorite was an Icarian.

Best non machine bicep stimulator would be super slow chins or top holds.

Really? [I am not trying to be sarcastic, just a sincere curiosity]

Multiple sets or a single set to failure?

The deadlift is the best exercise overall strength development. There is no need for any otro equipment. Many Hiters hang on the words of Renex and Ken Hutchins when isometrics are mentioned. The deadlift is a monster isometric exercise for the biceps..... Hypocritical?
The biceps are considered wasteful by power lifters....bodybuilders and others do bicep exercises to impress other men. Women prefer a firm backside, not big biceps. Once again, the deadlift does the job .

Extreme pronation or extreme supination makes little difference either from my experience.

I disagree Marc , the varying range of motion from pronation thru to full supination does affect varying proportions of the upper ( & lower ) arm.
