Why do I see gymnasts like Yuri Van Gelder and Jake Dalton doing bicep curls?

Recommended Posts

I don't understand - as first class gymnasts performing solely bodyweight movements, wouldn't performing the exact bodyweight movements themselves lead to the best results?

 

How do bicep curls enhance their training?

 

Thanks in advance.

Usually for warmup and higher rep rehab/prehab :) for actual strength building yes, the movements themselves are usually superior

Seriously though, It is for warmup and high rep work.

High rep biceps curls are very nice elbow prehab.

What do you guys consider high rep? 15+?

i dont count when i do curls but 15 would definitely be on the lower end of the range i use. its always nice to do some sets of banded curls to get blood flowing in the elbow region after a SAS workout.

Anytime they do them it always seems to be a finisher or as others have said, for rehab/prehab
