Biceps Cheat?

by Neil Anderson

Q: I'm new here and, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it cheating when you swing biceps curls? 

A: Kind of depends on what you call cheating.  If it is "cheating" to simulate a movement that you do in real life; if it is "cheating" to perform a movement that has more functional transfer; if it is cheating to use more muscle groups (all of them) with one exercise; if it is cheating to improve your health exponentially more than a strict body building style biceps curl could do while netting the same shaping effect, then - YEP!
