    Eg, site is called bicepstraining.com
    keyword to rank for: biceps training

    Will using the domain name, bicepstraining.com or the URL http://bicepstraining.com as an ExTERNAL anchor cause over optimisation or is this considered "safe"?

    No, I think that still counts as a naked url, therefore it's safe to use.
    Although you really have to be careful with EMDs when choosing the right anchors, nakeds are always fine.

    that is was I thought..

    sadly after the latest months, I am stopping all EMA . in 9/10 cases they cause problems. and "anchor text ration-ing" and balacing piss me off atm.

    but thanks for the replies.

    just wanted to get one thing out of my head, which confused me for a while..

    and url anchor provided much more stable, and even faster ranking improvements without any crappy dance in the past.

    its causing overoptimization.

    Example 1 – BestWeightLoss.com
    This domain already includes the words weight loss, we need to be extra careful not to over-optimise.

    We can’t use the site name “Best Weight Loss” or the domain “BestWeightLoss.com” multiple times in the anchor text because they both include the keyword.

    Instead, use longtail and topic relevant anchor texts, like this:

    • lose weight guide
    • weight loss for beginners
    • losing weight
    • lost weight
    • weight loss blog
    As before, use a different anchor text every time. Save the exact “weight loss” anchor text until last, this will give you a final push in your ranking, but it also provides you security from over-optimisation when you have a small number of links.

    For links you use for diversification i.e. web 2.0s and social profiles, you will need to use generic and industry relevant anchor texts exclusively because there is no brand name to use, and the URL contains the keyword. These anchor texts could be:
