Incline Dumbbell Curl Instructions

  1. Position an incline bench at roughly 55-65 degrees, select the desired weight from the rack, and sit upright with your back flat against the pad.
  2. Using a supinated (palms up) grip, take a deep breath and curl both dumbbells towards your shoulders.
  3. Once the biceps are fully shortened, slowly lower the weights back to the starting position.
  4. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Incline Dumbbell Curl Tips

  1. Don’t allow the elbows to shift behind the body. Similarly, make sure the shoulder doesn’t shift forward in the socket as you lower the weight.
  2. Maintain a slight bend in the elbow at the bottom of the movement in order to keep tension through the biceps.
  3. Using a slow eccentric (lowering portion) of the exercise can help to improve tension and mind muscle connection.
