    I see people suggesting that there are benefits to raising the elbow on a bicep curl as the bicep crosses the shoulder joint. Is this worth incorporating?

    hey harry. Raising elbow on a bicep curl wont help building bicep but can help you active external rotator cuff. plese find the video link for better understanding. watch from 4 min 28 sec

    Imo it’s probably not worth it- fact is the biceps just don’t have good leveerage for shoulder flexion- primary shoulder flexors do, so the biceps probably play more of a stability role. Of course, form is pretty individual so give it a whirl and see how you feel, if you get a good stimulus to fatigue ratio from incorporating some shoulder flexion hey go for it
