Is it ok to bend your back a little when curling a lot of weight?
I personally follow this routine currently:
30 x 12,
60 x 8 (slight straining, fairly easy)
75 x 3-4 (heavy ass weight, straining involved which is usually transferred to my back)

No. Transferring the wight could lead to a pulled muscle. You've also got to consider that your bi's are not getting the full grunt.

Try sitting down or standing with your back to the wall

Yep - isolate those bad boys more.
Don't worry about the pounds - keep the form right.
You may only do 45lbs. 3 x 10, but I think you'll feel (and see) a difference in what it's doing for you.

I usually don't use too much back with 65 lbs or 70's for reps...but 75's kill me

if I bend over a little while curling (keeping back straight as possible), it seems to be more intense.
