PURPOSE OF EXERCISE: To develop the
biceps especially the lower end.
This is especially good for anyone
who has space between the lower biceps
and the elbow joint, to help fill in and
shape this area.
EXECUTION: Preacher Curls are an even
stricter movement than regular Barbell
Curls. (1) Position yourself with your
chest against the bench, your arms
extending over it. This puts the arms at
an angle, which transfers additional
stress to the lower area of the muscle.
Take hold of a barbell with an
underhand grip. (2) Holding your body
steady, curl the bar all the way up and
then lower it again to full extension,
resisting the weight on the way down.
You can use an E-Z curl bar for this
movement, or even use the bench for
One-Arm Dumbbell Curls. Don’t lean
back as you lift the bar, and deliberately
flex the muscle extra hard as you come
to the top of the movement, where there
is little actual stress on the biceps
