Standing Alternating Dumbbell Curls

  • Stand up straight holding a dumbbell in each hand with both feet shoulder width apart.
  • The palms of the hands should be facing your torso to start.
  • While holding the upper arm stationary, curl the right arm forward while contracting the biceps until your arm is at shoulder level.
  • Hold the contracted position for a second as you squeeze the biceps.
  • As you return the right arm down to the starting position, begin moving the left arm up, following the same line as the right arm.
  • One complete set is when both arms have been worked.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
