I like to use negative-only after I have plateaued on an exercise. The negative the part of the movement causes the muscle trauma (which can lead to supercompensation if proper rest, nutrition, etc. is applied).

yep do 4-6 negitives of a 25-45 more pounds than your max curl, always a good bicep finish set

Each of my worksets form dumbell preacher curls are negative-only sets.
Firstly i do 2 sets to failure...these are my 'warm-up sets' (tho not 'warm-up by the standard definition)
Then i do 2 sets of negative-only work.
I train by myself so i spot the working arm with the non-working arm.
IMO this exercise works wonderfully.
