Barbell Curl

Pro Tip

If your wrists feel uncomfortable, you can substitute a regular barbell for the EZ curl bar.

How To

  1. Stand upright with your arms fully extended, gripping the barbell shoulder-width apart with palms facing away from you.
  2. Keeping your upper arms by your side, exhale and raise the barbell up towards your shoulders by flexing your arms. Avoid using your legs or back to lift.
  3. Continue until your arms are fully flexed and the barbell cannot be curled any further.
  4. Inhale and lower the barbell back down, returning to the starting position.
