This exercise is one of the all-time classics. It's an exercise that has the potential to pack slabs of muscle onto your biceps if you execute the movement correctly and load the bar plenty.

There is no secret to building big powerful pipes; all you need is to blast your arms with the right exercise and this movement is certainly one of those exercises that will help.

Having said all of the above, we do want to mention one thing that some people have experienced. Namely, some people don't like using the this bar because it causes discomfort to their forearms. If you experience this it is best to do this exercise with dumbbells. No need to suffer in pain if you can just as easily pick-up a pair of dumbbells as a substitute.
