Dumbbell Bicep Curl on Stability Ball
Muscles Worked: Brachioradialis, Brachialis, Biceps Brachii
Sit on the stability ball with your knees bent and legs at a 90-degree angle, feet flat on the floor and shoulder width apart. Keep you’re back straight, core tight and arms at side. In each hand grip a dumbbell, with palms facing the ball (do not rest the weights on the ball).
Slowly lift the weights straight up turning your wrists once the weights have cleared your body, so that your palms are facing up. Continue lifting the weights up in a slow and controlled manner until approximately shoulder height to complete the contraction. Exhale while completing this step.
Breathing in on the way down, gradually lower the weights, turning your wrists as you near your body so that your palms are facing the ball, and you return to the starting position. Repeat.
This is excellent for emphasizing the biceps in all its actions but make sure you get it right!
