I can honestly say with 100% certainty that I’ve never considered the safety of a biceps exercise.
Well according to a cunt on another forum:
FYI DB incline curls, assuming these are done seated on a bench? if so, these are probs THE worst bicep movement for your shoulders
the technical bit;
“The proximal tendon of the long head of the biceps is one of the most commonly injured structures of the shoulder joint. It’s highly susceptible to overuse and even rupture if the degeneration is allowed to proceed. Given the long head of the biceps’ interaction with the highly important glenoid labrum, you want to be very careful to avoid irritating this tendon. When you take your elbow and shoulder into full extension simultaneously, you lengthen the long head of the biceps. Now, put yourself in the incline curl position, and you turn that shoulder extension into hyperextension. Tendons with a history of trauma don’t typically like to be taken to extremes, especially under load.”
So, I made a thread earlier on asking if he was bullshitting me to which loads of people came on and basically sucked his cock in agreement. Just sayin’[/quote]
You’re a newb who comes across like a know it all. That combination sucks.
I stay away from upright rows because I see more benefit from other movements and because of the risk of shoulder damage. That doesn’t mean no human alive can do them without injury. There are clearly people who use them without any problems. That doesn’t erase the RISK.
The stance you are taking is as if there are black and white “all good or all bad” answers to everything involving weight lifting. There are not.
