What are Bicep Curls?

Bicep curls target the biceps brachii muscles located in the front of the upper arm. Lifting or “curling” a weight up towards the shoulders works the biceps through their primary function of elbow flexion.

How to Perform Bicep Curls:

  • Stand with knees soft, core braced, elbows at sides
  • Hold weights with palms facing forward (supinated grip)
  • Keeping upper arms steady, bend elbows and curl weights up
  • Squeeze biceps hard at the top
  • Slowly lower weights back down until arms are straight

Bicep Curl Tips:

  • Avoid swinging or leaning backwards
  • Go through full range of motion
  • Maintain wrist alignment to avoid strain
  • Vary grip, angle, and hand position
  • Use challenging weight and volume

Benefits of Strong Biceps:

  • Improved arm strength and definition
  • Stabilize elbow and shoulder joints
  • Assist with pulling motions for back and arms
  • Enhanced performance in sports and activities

In summary, good form, progressive overload, and flexing hard builds bigger, stronger bicep muscles over time.
