If you want focus on those biceps, this is your starting point. Whether you want a set of guns that will look great, or elegant, toned upper arms, the barbell bicep curl can help you get there.

What to watch out for:

It’s worth noting that while practically everyone has seen a bicep curl, there are a few things you should keep in mind: The more control you have, the more you are exercising the biceps. One good rep is better than ten terrible ones. Keep your back straight. Don’t crunch over, or arch back too far. If you can’t do the reps without making these movements, try a lighter weight. Don’t worry, you’ll build up to that level soon.
