Do you have a pair of dumbbells sitting in your basement, unused and neglected? Well, we have a simple exercise you can do at home to put those forlorn dumbbells to good use.
How to do a proper bicep curl:
First, make sure you’re standing up straight and tall, with no arch in your back. Once you’ve got the dumbbells in hand, there’s a few different ways you can perform the exercise.
- Moving both hands simultaneously in an up down motion, with your palms facing out, bending at the elbows.
- Moving one hand at a time in an up down motion, alternating between your left and right arms.
- Turning your palms so that they face each other, then proceeding with the same up down motion, bending at the elbows. This is called a hammer curl.
