Biceps Curl (PowerBlocks Incline)


Target Muscles: Biceps brachii, Brachialis, Brachioradialis
Starting Position:
1. Sit on an incline bench with your back and shoulders pressed firmly  against the bench.
2. Hold a pair of PowerBlocks (or Dumbbells) by your sides, palms facing inwards.
3. Your arms should be fully extended and hang downwards.
The Movement:
1. Slowly curl one PowerBlock (or Dumbbell) towards your shoulder, rotating your forearm  so that your palm faces your shoulder at the top of the movement.
2. Hold for a count of two; then slowly lower the PowerBlock (or Dumbbell) back to the  starting position.
3. Repeat with the other arm and continue alternating arms.
Tips:
• Do not allow your body to move forwards to generate momentum -  keep your torso still.
• Make sure you fully straighten your arms at the bottom of the  movement.
