No, it's not spam. But that's cute.

I'm not a spammer. I don't even like spam. I was wondering if one of these delivers better results than regular curls.

I have no idea. It looks like a gimmick to me. It's just common for links by first time posters to be suspect. that's why I called it spam. For all I know, you could be promoting that site. Don't be surprised when an admin deletes that link.

I understand. Sears sells the same thing on their website, actually, for $10 less.

Just another method for stabilizing the upper arm during curls to assure isolation. You can do "concentration curls" or preacher curls, or just use discipline and careful form. Of course, if your shoulders aren't very strong, that will limit how much you can curl without a stabilization aid. So why not just get everything strong at once?

No links for new posters.

....and no, you don't need something like that. You're better off with a barbell.

Is there really any difference between curling a straight bar and a EZ curl bar?

Only if the straight bar bothers your wrists. Otherwise it's the same. The width of your grip can change it a little. However that's only something to really think about in advanced bodybuilding.

Doing some of your back work underhanded helps.

big time, I decided to try and specialise in my pitiful biceps and got some (relatively) decent size gains from doing an underhand cable row as my main rowing movement.
