I wasn't really sure where to post this, so i just put it here.
I was just wondering why the bicep curl was deemed a "nonfunctional" exercise. To me it seems that every time you pick something up off the floor and bring it to your chest, to be carried or lifted overhead, you are curling that thing from the waist up. Therefore, having a strong bicep curl would transfer quite well to "real-life" strength.
I would appreciate an answer to this question.
