One of the basic question to answer in the quest for greater size and strength is how can I recruit more fibers of a higher threshold during workouts. Here is a simple trick for all your curling exercises: when you reach the bottom position of the curling exercises, isometrically contract the triceps, this will increase the pre-stretch on the elbow flexors which will automatically activate more motor units in the following concentric contraction of the elbow flexors.
