    I believe they are talking about the curl bar itself. I believe that the "bent" bar is just for those who have trouble with lifting the straight bar due to comfort or injury. Some people use it because they believe it will help because of the different angle. I personally use the straight bar for most everything and believe that it does as well as anything.

    It's when you go real heavy and the bar bends when you curl it. Happens all the time to me.
    Yes, they are EZ bar, Preacher Curl bar, or Cambered bar.
