Barbell or Dumbbell Standing Curls Exercise
Focus Area: arms
1. Start by standing straight, with your feet shoulder width apart, arms at your sides and underhand grip either the long straight bar or dumbbells with your palms facing out and shoulder width apart.
2. Using your biceps, bend your elbows and curl the weight up until your arms do not go any further. Pause at the top for one second. Slowly, lower the weight back down to the starting position and repeat. Do not lean back or rock your body. Any momentum you generate that does not come from your arms will make this exercise ineffective.
3. Exhale as you curl the weight up; inhale as you lower the weight down.
