You can change the focus of this exercise slightly by changing up where you grip the barbell. Wider grips will favor the back muscles more while narrower grips will favor the biceps more. Just don't grab the barbell closer than shoulder-width.

Make sure to always use weight clips whenever you use a barbell, to prevent the plates from sliding off.
