How To Do Preacher Curls



Lots of guys want large, powerful biceps but don't know where to start. Today I'm going to show you how preacher curls can increase the size and strength of your biceps.

How To Do Preacher Curls

You'll need a preacher bench, barbell and weight plates for this exercise. This is an isolation exercise which targets the bicep muscles. Start out with a warm up set. Begin by placing one five pound weight on each end of the bar. Grasp the bar with a supine grip (palms facing up). Sit down on the bench and keep your back straight. Make sure that your chest is in contact with the preacher pad. Place your arms on the curl pad making sure they are at a 45 degree down angle.

Now, with your arms extended, use your bicep muscles to lift the bar in a curling fashion until the bar is within one inch of your face. Now lower the bar to its starting position. Do this for nine more reps.

You've finished up the warm up set and ready for the real workout. Begin by adding more weight. To build bigger, stronger arms, perform low reps with heavy weights. Aim for three sets of 4 - 6 reps. As you become stronger, gradually increase the amount that you lift.

The barbell preacher curl is a difficult exercise for beginners, but it's an excellent way to increase the circumference of your biceps. Stick with them and you'll see results.
