Barbell Drag Curl Overview

A barbell drag curl is a form of the barbell curl used to develop the biceps muscles.

Many gym-goers who attend because of their aesthetics have massive biceps. You can develop broad, well-balanced biceps by including a variety of curl variations in your bicep workout, including the barbell drag curl.

How to Do It?

  • Pick your weight, put it on the bar, and then stand with your shoulders wide.
  • Take a deep breath and curl the barbell toward your shoulders using a supinated (palms up) grip.
  • Keep the bar close to your torso as you draw it up by letting the elbows stray behind the body.
  • Slowly decrease the weight to the starting position once the biceps have entirely contracted.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Tips for Barbell Drag Curl

  • Keep the elbow slightly bent at the bottom of the exercise to sustain tension in the biceps.
  • Tension and the mind-muscle connection can be improved by performing the exercise with a slow eccentric (lowering component).
  • Use an EZ curl bar or dumbbells if using a barbell causes you to pain in your wrists or forearms.
