How to do it

The barbell curl is a basic bicep exercise that helps increase the size of the muscles.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart, keeping your knees slightly bent and abs drawn in tight.

2.) Grab a barbell with a shoulder width underhand (palms up) grip, lowering your arms down to your thighs fully and bending slightly at your elbows as this will be your starting position.

3.) Slowly raise the bar towards your upper chest, squeezing your muscles and isolating the biceps.

4.) Hold this position for a count and then return back to the starting position.

Tips :

1.) Refrain from swinging your hips or back during this exercise.
