- SETUP: Stand upright, with your chest out and shoulders back. Get into a split-stance if you prefer. Take an overhand-grip of an EZ-bar. I like to place my hands on the wider handles of the bar bend as this is easier on the wrists & elbows.
- REP: Curl the bar up by squeezing the bar hard and flexing your biceps. Your forearms will work extra hard here due to the unnatural grip position, especially in the first phase of the rep. Keep your elbows tight to your sides throughout and lower the weight with control.
- TIP: The bottom half of the rep is where our forearms do the most work, so it’s important to ALWAYS make sure you lower the bar all the way down. You should be able to flex your triceps at the end of each rep.
