How To Do Reverse Bicep Curls



Bicep curls are among the best weight lifting exercises for developing bulging biceps. Today I'm going to show you how to do reverse bicep curls. Here are a few benefits of this exercise:

  • stronger biceps
  • stronger posture
  • strong forearms
Now that you've read about some of the benefits of this exercise, the next thing you need to know is how to do them.

How To To Reverse Bicep Curls

Begin with a warm up set. Grab a fixed weight barbell (five pounds on each end). Stand up straight with your feet shoulder width apart. Hold the barbell in front of you with your arms fully extended, while making sure that your palms are facing you. Now use your bicep muscles to bring the barbell upward. Stop when the barbell is at chest level. Now lower the barbell to the starting position. Repeat for nine more reps then stop.

After completing the warm up set, choose a heavier weight. If your goal is strength, go for heavy weights and low reps (4 - 6 reps). If you just want to tone your biceps, use light weights while performing many repetitions (e.g. 15 reps).

The reverse curl is slightly more difficult than the standard bicep curl and that's what makes it an excellent weight lifting exercise. You'll be giving your arms a well deserved workout.
