Instructions: How To

This exercise is a variation on the standard curl. Like the standard curl, this exercise primarily targets your biceps, however there is a much greater need to recruit your forearms due to the reverse grip. The use of a handle band increases the resistance as you progress through the movement.

  1. Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart and a resistance band underneath the middle of both feet holding the handles with an overhand grip next to your hips.
  2. Bend your elbows to raise the handles up towards your shoulders keeping your elbows next to your torso.
  3. Return to the starting position.
