Incline Curls

Incline Curls-

Inclined curls are one of my favorite bicep exercises for many reasons. I really feel it isolates the bicep, is easy to perform, and it’s positioning makes it near impossible to cheat.

How to do it:

  • Set up an adjustable bench at an angle between 45-60 degrees
  • Sit on the bench and lie back. Make sure your shoulders are lying firmly on the back of the bench.
  • With a dumbbell in each hand let your arms hang to the sides as if they were weightless.
  • With the palms facing forward curl the weight up without lifting the elbow.
  • Curl the weights just above the waist, pause for a moment and squeeze your arms as if you were flexing.
  • Slowly lower the weight all the way back down so the arm is stretched.

Try 2-3 sets with a weight that allows you to pause at the top and gives the arms a strong pump and burn.

Let me know what you think.
