Alternating Arm Curl


This variation of the bodybuilding classic prevents excessive load being placed on the lower back and effectively targets the bicep muscles.

Performance Tips

  • Adopt a split stance with a weight in each hand
  • Your posture should be tall and upright
  • Smoothly curl one weight up towards your shoulder
  • Try not to let your elbow drift forwards too far as you do this
  • As you start lowering one weight, start lifting the other
  • Make sure you complete an even number of repetitions on each side
