Pick up weight, curl the weight and repeat....Up the dose if you don't grow.
Anything else is WAY over thinking  the situation.

It really doesn't matter as long as you make sure to perform the movement in a squat rack

Straight bar.....E-Z Curl Bar is better suited for triceps training.

I actually like the straight bar for triceps too

I do skull crushes with very strict form on slight decline using either a small straight bar or olympic bar and like it much better than the curl bar.   I don't go very heavy on it though and do reps of 12-15.  Usually no more than 115lb

"Studies suggest" was a classic lead-in from Fat Panda.  Is there a chance he's returned as RectumLicker?

This may or may not come off as being cruel, but is this guy a "natural" bodybuilder?  His physique is quite unremarkable.

I really don't wish to start my own thread so perhaps its not to much to ask here.   Do any of you suffer from what feels like a tendon in the elbow popping when doing shoulder presses, bench presses, dips and even tricep push downs?  It is keeping me from training and I had a cortisone shot in my elbow a while back but it didn't help at all.  Even light weight that allows for 50 reps or more is painful. 

Bicep training is not a problem (when I lift) and I find either straight or ez-curl bar sufficient but prefer the former.   I would like to start lifting again but the pop and pain are too much.  Tried wrapping it too. 

Thanks in advance for any that would care to offer advice on the elbow problem.

I have a fucked up elbow and using the cambered is the way that doesn't tweak it as badly. Prefer DB's

I took me awhile to get used to them and I only started doing them becuause my gym only has a couple of curl barsl but now I really do prefer it over the curl bar for that particular exercise

Straight bar  Best for muscle activation.
EZ bar Best for joints.
