Reverse Bicep Curl: Overview

Working our bicep muscles is important because they are responsible for some of the most common movements that we do every day. Bicep muscles help us lift objects, open jars, and perform other tasks that require strength and dexterity. Additionally, well-defined biceps can give your arms a more toned and sculpted appearance.

Reverse bicep curls target the muscles on the back of your upper arm. These are the same muscles that are used when you do a standard bicep curl but in reverse motion. To do reverse bicep curls, you will need to use a weight that is comfortable for you to lift. You can either use a barbell or dumbbells.

How To Do It

  • Start with your feet hip-width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing downward.
  • Bend your elbows and curl the weights up towards your shoulders, keeping your palms facing forward the entire time.
  • Pause for a moment at the top of the curl and then slowly lower the weights back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Performing Reverse Curl Biceps Tips 

  • First, make sure to use a weight that is comfortable for you to lift.
  • Second, always keep your back straight and avoid arching it while lifting the weight.
  • Finally, lift the weight in a controlled manner and do not swing the weight up or down, as this can lead to injury.
