General And Specifics

Starting Position

  • grasp an ez bar or a barbell, the hands are shoulder width away, use the under hand grip (palms of the hands point forward)
  • hold the weight in front of you thighs
  • the arms and legs are slightly bent
  • your feet are hip width apart and can be staggered a bit for more stability
  • posture is upright

Correct Execution

  • bend the arms without gaining momentum, bring the hands in front of the shoulders
  • hold the upper arms and elbows close to the thorax
  • instead of bringing the weight down as in the bicep-curl, stretch out the arms to the ceiling above your head
  • the palms of the hands point backwards then
  • keep the back straight and avoid tilting back the upper body
  • afterwards, invert the motion and bring the weight back to the starting position
  • do several reps
