    I think that's very possible. I can do 45's on each side of an ez curl bar for a set of 8 and I'm not even that big.

    well..... maybe 100lbs, providing my form is good. I drives me crazy when I see guys do preachers with too much wieght and they hardly let the bar down.

    me: 210 lbs, only 17" guns, (not 17 foot)

    I'll join this fight...I think YOUR collective grammar abilities are lacking a bit. YOU'RE an embarrasment to English teachers the world over. Just kidding guys, but while we're fighting like kids i'll toss in my childish pet peeve.

    Damn whose this guy?! I thought I was strong. When I was 170(booooo) I could only get up 90+20+15=125. Hugh. I havent done it in awhile cause I loev the standing cable curl too much. THats 220lbs X 4.

    By the way I love to watch Meatheads curl too much and jerk the bar. I wathc and laugh hoping theyll get pissed so we can fight. HA!

    why is that so hard to belive..in fact, i'm currently 170 becuse i just got off of a t400 and deca cycle. i can curl 160lbs at 160lbs...and for the most part, i dont think i cheat when i curl...i normally go 3/4 of the way down with a nice and slow motion...is that far enough??? personally, my biceps are the best feature...in fact, everyone always notices my arms because of my small figure...

    i might be mistaken, but I thought the ez bar was only 25 pounds at most... i can go 55 on each side (i weigh 210 though), but only count that as 135#. I do standing barbell curls now, but I use strange form... I keep my elbows locked back so my range of motion is limited and a little jerky, I get a better pump from that even though I only work up to 45s on each side. I get good pumps from doing 100# the normal elbows at side way. My long-term goal is to get 185 for reps on straight bar with good form. My short-term is 135 with better form.

    the most i can do standing ez bar curl is 45s and a nickel on each side. i only weigh 168-170lbs and really have not been training my lower back so it's a lot of pressure to do standing curls..i know the weight of the ez curl bar because i took it into the locker room one day and weighed it.

    Depends how far you go down? When you max on preachers do you go parallel to the floor or all the way down?

    150-160 lbs would be my 1RM , that's just my estimate.

    I go as low as i possibly can, always.
