Step-by-step instructions
1
Sit down on the preacher bench and adjust the seat until your armpits rest comfortably at the top of the pad.
2
Hold the EZ bar using an underhand grip (your palms must be facing upwards) and lift it until your arms are fully extended and perpendicular to the ground.
3
Without changing your upper-arms position, curl the bar up, keeping your palms facing upwards.
4
At the top of the curl, hold the movement for a second to maximize the peak contraction in your biceps.
5
Slowly lower the bar back to the starting straight arm position, maintaining control throughout the negative phase. Repeat for the appropriate number of reps.
