Hello Dr. Darden ,
I’ve admired your work for many years and you have always been my primary source when I have a training question. I have just about all of your books and refer to them often.
My question for you is what do you believe to be the most effective hand position for training for muscle size on the biceps curl movement, specifically using a Nautilus Multi Biceps, a Nautilus Next Gen Multi Biceps machine and a MedX Arm curl. Which of these machines are more efficient with respect to the hand position for recruiting the most amount of muscle fibers for hypertrophy? The 1st and 2nd gen Multi Biceps have the straight handle grip, the Next Gen nautilus went to more of an ez curl type grip, and the MedX seems to be even more aggressive EZ curl type hand position.
I think you mentioned on your old HIT message boards a few years ago , that when you were working with Arthur Jones, that he never quite was satisfied or resolved his opinion on the proper hand position. So I wanted to ask you if you have an opinion on this.
