Coach's Tips

The name was given to focus on raising the arm. It is a workout that targets the inner and upper biceps. It's a workout that can minimize arm rebound and shoulder joint movement!

How to Concentration Curl

Starting Position

1. Avoid swinging your arms and using momentum to curl the dumbbells.

2. Keep your elbows close to your sides throughout the exercise.

3. Make sure to keep your back straight and your core engaged.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your upper arms still, curl the dumbbells up toward your shoulders.

2. Squeeze your biceps at the top of the motion, then slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Breathe in as you curl the dumbbells up and exhale as you lower them back down.


1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand.

2. Place the dumbbells against your thighs.
