Barbell & Dumbell
Ok, im reading in this book that this guy does barbell pretchur curls instead of the curl bar or dumbell. What is the difference when curling using the barbell result wise? Different angle or what? and could i do them both in a workout, or would that overtrain. THanx

Well the obvious is that when using a db's your one arm can't really cheat for the other. If your going to do preacher db curl I would do one arm at a time. It's a more concentraded curl IMO. I wouldn't do both barbbell and db preacher curl, pick one or the other...Although it really would depend on what your bicep workout is.
If you can post your whole bicep workout it would help to determine if you're over training..

when i work biceps, i just do incline curls, pretchur curl, and hammar curls, but i was wondering if i used the barbell if that would give better results

You should switch up your workout to shock the muscles. I would recommend using the barbell one week and the dumbell the next. Just my opinion though. I usually vary my workouts from week to week.
