This exercise focuses on working the biceps muscle group.
- Stand straight with feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent. Abdominal muscles should be tight. Grip a dumbbell in each hand. Lock elbows against the sides of your torso and hold weights at the front of your thighs.
- Keeping your back straight, exhale as you curl both dumbbells towards your shoulders. Do not lean back as you lift the weights.
- Inhale and lower dumbbells down directly in front of your thighs, keeping your elbows in tight to focus on the biceps. This completes one rep.
- To make easier: alternate using one arm and then the other. To make harder: slow down the motion resisting both up and down. Notes: - Keeping your ab muscles tight will help protect your lower back. - Do not lean back while raising the weights. If you are, then the weights are too heavy.
