Biceps: Reverse Barbell Curls

Right up there with Hammer Curls, the Reverse Barbell Curl is an amazing biceps shaper!  Although it is most commonly done with a “curled” or “E-Z” bar, this exercise can also be done with a straight bar or a weighted body bar.

Keep your elbows back on all bicep exercises to reduce the chance of shoulders helping (ie cheating)! Begin with a light weight to secure proper form and control. You should feel the biceps at the top of the movement and some of the forearms working throughout (think of strong grip for opening bottles!)

Recommendations: 2-3 sets of 8-10 repetitions.
