How to Dumbbell Drag Curl

Starting Position

1. Make sure that you keep your elbows close to your sides throughout the entire exercise

2. Do not swing the dumbbells up, instead use your biceps to lift the weights.

3. Avoid arching your back. Keep your core engaged and your back flat throughout the exercise.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your elbows close to your sides, curl both dumbbells up at the same time.

2. Once your forearms are parallel to the floor, pause for a moment, then lower the weights back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you curl the weights up.

2. Inhale as you lower the weights back down.


1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand.

2. Bend your knees slightly and hinge forward at the hips, keeping your back flat and core engaged.

3. With your arms extended, allow the dumbbells to hang in front of your legs.
