Instructions: How To

Similar to other curls, this isolation exercise targets the biceps. Using a loop band increases tension as you progress through the movement. This is a great variation for learning how to do curls, building muscle mass and developing strength at the top of the movement.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with toes pointed slightly outward.
  2. Place the band under the mid-foot area and grab the loop with both hands with an underhand grip roughly shoulder-width apart.
  3. Start the movement with hands near the hip and keep arms to the side.
  4. Bend the elbows at a normal pace to raise the band towards the shoulders.
  5. Control the resistance back to the starting position at a normal pace and repeat the movement.

Common Mistakes

  • Varying Tension with Bands

    Resistance increases as you stretch a band. Make sure you’re using a band that allows you to move through your full range of motion. The resistance may feel too light during parts of the movement.

  • Limit Range of Motion at the Top

    There should always be tension on your biceps. It’s very common to lose tension at the top of the movement when the resistance is directly over your elbow. Limit your range of motion so your biceps stay engaged for the entire exercise.
