Starting PositionExecution

General And Specifics

  • the bicep workout with an ez bar does not strain the wrists as much as the barbell variation

Starting Position

  • pick up an ez bar shoulder width with under hand grip
  • the backs of the hands point to the thighs
  • fixate the upper arms to the torso
  • the feet are shoulder width apart
  • the head is the extension of the spine
  • bend the elbow joints a little

Correct Execution

  • guide the ez bar upwards as high as you can by bending your elbow joints
  • do not swing, do not gain momentum
  • always hold the elbows close to the body
  • the upper arms remain fixated to the torso all the time
  • let the weight sink down again slowly
  • do not forget to keep your elbows bent a little to keep the strain for the joints low
  • repeat the exercise several times
