Incline Dumbbell Curl

Step 1

Set an incline bench to a 45-degree incline. Holding one dumbbell in each hand with an underhand grip (palms facing away from your body), lie down on the bench and plant your feet on the floor on either side of the bench, or on the bench itself — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your elbows to hold the dumbbells directly by your sides on either side of the bench. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. While keeping your upper arms as still as possible, bend your elbows to bring the dumbbells up towards your shoulders.

Step 3

Inhale. Extend your elbows to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
