Muscle Group: Biceps

Incline Dumbbell Curls allow you to bring your arms behind your body when curling. This is impossible to do with a regular Barbell Curl. The incline bench does not have to be 45 degrees. With Incline Dumbbell Curls we get a great stretch in the biceps which is great for overall development. Incline curls develop mass and bicep peak at the same time.

  1. Sit back on an incline bench with a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Curl the weights up to shoulder level. Lower the weights again, fully under control, and pause at the bottom to stop you from using any momentum to swing the weights back up.
  3. You’ll get the best results by turning your wrists so that your palms face each other at the bottom, then twist the weights as you lift so that the palms turn upward – with your pinky finger being higher than the thumb at the top of the curl.
