I had a rib injury a few weeks ago and previously had been doing
50lbt x 14 reps concentration curls.
You are a noob using 23 kilos for 14 reps doing CCs?
I said I was a "noob" to _this group_ , not weight lifting.
My questions are :
(1) Are there any techniques/devices that help to keep oneself
from leaning back and putting stress on the back and ribs when
approaching temporary muscular failure?
I think so, yes.
Ever tried this way?
You didnt want to lean back, you said?
Thats weird, because i never witnessed anyone leaning back performing CCs
It's only during the last 2-3 reps, when TMF is approaching.
(2) After weeks of not performing concentration curls, I decided
to test myself, as my rib had gotten better. Curiously, I've
regressed by 4 reps, and I feel weaker. I thought this
strange since preacher...
You said concentration, i thought
curls are supposed to be one of the
most intense biceps isolation exercises.
Are they the most intense? If so, why?
Because they isolate the biceps more so than most other exercises.
And why is strange you lose strength on an exercise that is allegedly
intense, as opposed to losing strength in an exercise that is not intense?
I can't understand what you're talking about.
