This popular variation works the biceps for a slightly different angle than the basic bicep curl.
- Stand hip-width apart with dumbbells in hands resting by your sides. Your palms will be inward, facing your thighs.
- Begin by bending at the elbow and raising the dumbbells up to your shoulders. Keep your wrists straight throughout the movement. Only the lower portion of your arm should move. The upper arm stays stationary, close to your sides.
- Slowly lower the weights back to starting position.
