Exercise Instructions

  1. Select the desired weight from the rack, and sit in an upright position with your chest flat against the preacher bench.
  2. Keep your upper arm pressed into the pad and use a supinated (palms facing up) grip.
  3. Take a deep breath and slowly lower the dumbbell away from your shoulder.
  4. Once the bicep is fully lengthened, curl the weight back to the starting position.
  5. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions on both sides.

Exercise Tips

  1. Maintain a slight bend in the elbow at the bottom of the movement in order to keep tension through the biceps.
  2. Using a slow eccentric (lowering portion) of the exercise can help to improve tension and mind muscle connection.
