All those awesome workout routines in Muscle Fitness, Flex, Men's Fitness/Health work extraordinarily well when you're on roids. Works even better when your a meso to begin with. Meso + Roids = "dowhateverthefuckyouwantinthegymandgrow". That's the beauty and irony in those mags, (with a few exceptions)none of the dudes got to where they are by doing just those routines.

I admit I know nothing about bodybuilding but I can tell you that in my college gym the guys with really big muscles are doing bench press with a barbell and the skinny guys are curling barbells and dumbells and using that cable thing where you push down on the handle. Obviously all that curling doesn't accomplish very much. There are two young women in there with bigger biceps than most of the curl boys and one of them bench presses big plates and the other does pushups, one-arm pushups and pullups/chinups.
Female, 5'3", 50, Max squat: 202.5lbs. Max deadlift: 225 x 3.
Being weaker on my left side than my right, I am trying to build that up rather than getting better at faking it.
There are good reasons like eKatherine said: I am right hand dominant, consequently my right arm is much stronger than my left. When I use a barbell, my right arm compensates for my weaker left, resulting in little gain for my left arm.
Also, the range of motion feels more natural with a DB, and I have noticed my tendonitis in my forearms flares up a lot more with a barbell too.
In my gym, just about all the guys bench and most of them curl, whether they're big or small. This one guy is very muscular and has possibly the biggest biceps in the gym, and he does an insane number of curls. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen him do anything else.
"Don't go in there, General, it's a trap! That's a grain chamber. It makes people like you into people like me."
I just lift them because they are there. I also know almost nothing. But after I do all my chin-ups and push-ups I just feel like I can do a little more, and those are the perfect example of convenient heavy things to pick up. 50 pounds each, for a total of 100 pounds, and I squat, stand, curl them both, and raise them over my head 5x5, tossing in shrugs whenever I want. Full-body workout! It feels really good and I can feel my shoulder muscles doing things they don't do when I do chin-ups or push-ups. And it takes more coordination. If I need to pick up a heavy thing in the course of a day, I'll be more able to than someone who just does bodyweight.
And my arms are getting huge lately. Shirts aren't fitting again. Kind of envy guys who can be strong without getting giant muscles. But maybe they were lifting the 30 or 40 pound weights instead of the 50-pounders?and the skinny guys are curling barbells and dumbells and using that cable thing where you push down on the handle. Obviously all that curling doesn't accomplish very much.
I do bench-presses sometimes, too.
My right arm is always lagging behind my left in terms of strength. That's where my neck is tight and I think it's nerve-related. Makes me wish I were rich so I could get it fixed.
I'll try unilaterally, but with the squats and lifting over my head, I think symmetry makes more sense.
No, I don't just stand in one place like a dope doing curls. I do full-body stuff and farmer-carries, crawls and any other stuff I feel like doing.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
You gotta work dem gunzz if you wanna be jacked. Chesticles, bi's, and abzzz.
