General And Specifics

  • train your biceps without equipment with this easy exercise
  • use the resistance of your legs as an individual workout weight

Starting Position

  • sit down on the floor, your arms support your position
  • the legs are bent and stilted a little
  • the soles touch the ground
  • the hand of your bent arm encompasses the hollow of the knee of the opposite leg (e.g. the left hand the right thigh)
  • turn in your upper body a little
  • lean the triceps of the bent arm against the thigh on the same side
  • the other arm still supports your position

Correct Execution

  • stretch the leg slowly against the resistance of your arm
  • your arm is stretched as well
  • invert the movement and bend the arm against the resistance of your leg
  • the thigh moves back towards the chest
  • do several reps on one side
  • afterwards, switch sides and train the other arm with the same intensity
