Resistance Band Bicep Curls

The resistance band will enable you to train your biceps at home, in the office or just before you hit the beach. There is no reason why you can't perform bicep curls, almost anywhere with a resistance band.

Choose your desired foot position on the resistance band, holding the handles by your front, palms facing away from you.

keep a good tension on the band aim to keep your elbows tucked into your sides turn your palms around 180 degrees in the final phase

Keeping your elbows tucked into your sides throughout the lift, exhale and smoothly curl the handles up towards your shoulders. During the lifting phase aim to rotate your wrists 180 degrees so that your palms are facing away from you, as you lift them towards your shoulders.

This exercise will incorporate the movements of a reverse and normal bicep curl, and as such should become a regular part of your arm workout, as it will aid in muscle strength and development of your biceps and forearm muscles.

You may wish to perform this movement with your palms facing you at the start (reverse) and finish in either a normal or hammer action bicep curl.

Aim to keep your abdominal muscles tight throughout to avoid swinging or leaning forward during the movement, focusing on pulling your shoulders back and keeping your head up.

Always check for any signs of wear and tear in the resistance band, especially in the middle of the band, and around the insertion into the handle.
