- Set up for the across body hammer curl by grasping a pair of dumbbells and standing straight up holding them at your sides.
- You should be using a neutral grip (palms facing the body) and the dumbbells should not be resting on your body.
- Take up the tension by slightly bending your arms. This is the starting position for the exercise.
- Starting with your weakest arm (usually the left), slowly curl the dumbbell up across the front of your body as shown in the video demonstration.
- Squeeze the bicep at the top of the movement, and then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
- Repeat this movement for your other arm.
- This is one rep, now repeat to complete your set!
- The dumbbells should not touch the body at any point during the exercise.
- Keep the rep timing slow and controlled.
- Keep the tension on both of your biceps throughout the whole set.
