Pause in the top position, keeping tension on your biceps.
Keeping your upper arms perpendicular to the floor and your shoulders locked, slowly lower the bar back to the start (A). EASY

Why It’s Perfect for You

The bi in biceps indicates there are two “heads” to your upper arm muscles. This movement complements the previous exercise, the Dumbbell Hammer Curl, because each exercise addresses one head of the biceps. This movement makes the arm stronger, while the previous one creates shape and definition.
