    i like em okay but be careful. they are really rough on the tendons on the inside of your elbow

        I use a Machine preacher curl. Basically the same as a regular preacher just that its hooked to a weight stack. It works great for me as the tension is on the whole time.

          dont worry about starting off with less weight - as long as you can consistently make gains in that lift, its fine. i'm doing a machine preacher right now as one of my exercises.

          Note: i'm not an expert, but i'm probably right.

            I prefer the hammer preacher machine. Barbell or ez bar preacher curls kill my ineer elbows!
