This exercise is most commonly used in training designed to build muscle mass, and is a very effective means of stimulating the two heads of the biceps muscle. This biceps muscle exercise is particularly suitable for developing the brachioradialis and the anterior biceps brachii.
Instructions Instructions: -Stand up, with your legs slightly bent to “offload” the weight of the dumbbells onto your legs and so as not to overload your spine. -Keep your back straight. -Keep your arms next to your sides, gripping the dumbbells in a “neutral” position (with your palms facing inwards). -Flex your forearm, keeping your elbow as still as possible. -Lower your forearm slowly back to the starting position and repeat the action with the other arm. Common mistakes: 1)Incomplete action. 2)“Cheating” by arching your back backwards to facilitate the start of the action. 3)Moving your elbow forwards during flexion.
