EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Grab a dumbbell in each hand, and stand with your arms by your side. Keep your chest up & shoulders pinned back to maintain great posture throughout this exercise.
  • REP: Curl the weights up towards your shoulders, squeezing your biceps hard at the top. When you reach the top of the rep, turn your wrists over (I like a diagonal angle, turning all the way is harsh on the elbows) then lower the weights under strict control, ready for the next curl.
  • TIP: One of the best forearm builders in the business, this exercise is so effective because it allows us to hit our forearms with a weight we wouldn’t usually be able to use. That’s because we can BICEPS CURL the dumbbells up, then control the negative aspect of each rep with our forearms.
