Curls are inferior to chin-ups/pull-ups. I wouldn't do them at all.
Pyramiding produces suboptimal strength gains compared to "sets across."
If you're after strength and mass gains I'd recommend something else.

shocklocks wrote:i've always been a little hesitant about some of the exercises you've listed namely the squats, powercleans and overhead presses. I'm guessing I REALLY shouldn't be trying any of these (esspecially the last 2) without having someone to instruct me on form/technique as i'm doing them? They look like they could end rather painfully if done wrong.
shocklocks wrote:I'm deffinitely going to try get a gym membership over the summer, unfortunately during the semesters while our universities gym is a decent size it's half cardio equipment and with 700students on campus+teachers and the public using it it's generally abit crowded for my liking. Is it possible to do the exercises safely alone with just the barbell and a bench compared to having the metal frame arround you to rest the weight on afterwards/having a spotter?
