Incline Dumbbell Curl

Incline Dumbbell Curl | Bicep Workouts

The incline dumbbell curl is a great exercise for isolating and ensuring proper form. Keep your shoulders back and as much as possible, don’t move your upper arms. If you keep your hands extremely flat, palms up (supinated) and a wider grip, you will really hit the short head of the bicep with this exercise. This bicep workout is aimed at targeting the short bicep head specifically. Because it is said that exercises where your arms are pulled back really target the long head, if you switch up your grip a little bit, this is also a great long head exercise. The best way to maximize the effects on the long head is to use a semi-supinated (hammer) grip while performing this exercise. If you want to hit both heads, you could start out with a hammer grip and rotate into a palms up grip as you curl. As always when performing any bicep workout, make sure you maintain good form and really allow your bicep to get the full benefit from the bicep workout. This is another bicep exercise that is a killer short head workout and will really push your bicep workout to the max!
