Alternating Dumbbell Curls Review

Alternating dumbbell Curls are a great way to work biceps. The benefits of alternating dumbbell curls are many. This exercise is great for working the biceps, as well as the shoulders and triceps. Additionally, it helps to build core stability and improve balance. Furthermore, it can also help to increase grip strength.

Plus, it’s the best exercise for correcting size and strength imbalances as it engages and activates each muscle individually.

How to Do It?

  • To do this exercise, start by holding a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing forward.
  • From here, slowly lift one dumbbell up towards your shoulder while keeping your elbow and upper arm stationary.
  • Once the weight is at shoulder level, pause for a moment and then slowly lower it back to the starting position.
  • Repeat with the other arm.

Tips on Alternating Dumbbell Curls

  • Keep your body firm and straight throughout the exercise.
  • Contract and engage biceps throughout.
  • Start with the weaker arm; this helps cover strength imbalances.
