  1. Sit at the edge of the bench with your knees together.
  2. Pick up your dumbbells and let them hang by your sides 
  3. Your palms should be facing up.
  4. Bend the arms a little to engage your biceps.
  5. This is the starting position for the exercise.
  6. Keep the back straight, and your elbows tucked.
  7. Now slowly curl both dumbbells up till your chest or as far as you can go. 
  8. Squeeze the biceps at the top position.
  9. Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  10. Repeat for the desired number of reps.
