EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Grab a thick barbell (or a thick EZ-bar) in a shoulder-width grip position and stand with your arms extended. Keep your chest up & shoulders back to maintain great posture.
  • REP: Squeeze the bar and curl it up towards your shoulders, keeping your elbows tightly into your sides to ensure you don’t swing. Lower the bar back down under control.
  • TIP: The thick bar puts extra emphasis on our forearms throughout the rep. Make the most of this by ensuring you always take the bar all the way down (as soon as it gets difficult, your arms will want to cut the bottom third of the rep out).

MUSCLES WORKED BY THIS EXERCISE:

  • Arms (Biceps, Forearms)
