EZ-BAR CURL NEGATIVE REPS

EZ-BAR CURL NEGATIVE REPS


VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Load an EZ-bar with a challenging weight. Stand upright, chest out and shoulders back, and hold the bar with your arms hanging straight down.
  • REP WITH PARTNER: Curl the weight up by having your partner assist in the lift. Control the bar on the way down.
  • REP BY YOURSELF: Use a slight “kick” (see last 2 reps of video) to generate momentum and help get the bar up (Arnold called these “cheat curls”). Once at the top, slow it down and control the lowering phase.
  • TIP: As you lower the bar, squeeze it hard and control the tempo. You are much stronger in the lowering phase of a curl, so this exercise allows you to work with a weight you’d usually avoid.
