Standing Barbell Curl

Standing Barbell Curl

Preparation
Your feet should be roughly shoulder-width apart with a slight bend at the knees. Grab the bar with your shoulders squared and your chest up. Grasp bar with a shoulder width underhand grip. The barbell is resting on the thighs.

Execution
With elbows at sides, raise bar until forearms are vertical. Lower until arms are fully extended. Repeat. Don’t pause at any point during the exercise.

Comments
Always use a full range of motion. Work the muscle not the ego. When elbows are fully flexed, elbows should only travel forward slightly allowing forearms to be no more than vertical to allow for a relative release of tension in muscles between repetitions. Don’t round the shoulders during the weight lifting exercise. This takes emphasis off the biceps.

NOTE: You can also use an EZ Bar.
