Coach's Tips

If you lie down on an incline bench, the range of arm movement is longer, so the degree of muscle intervention increases. It's an effective workout to increase the length of your biceps!

How to

Starting Position

1. Make sure to keep your elbows tucked in close to your body throughout the exercise. 2. Don't swing the barbell or use momentum to curl the barbell up. 3. Make sure to keep your back flat against the bench and your core engaged throughout the exercise. 4. Don't lock out your arms at the bottom of the exercise. 5. Make sure to use a weight that is suitable to your fitness level.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your elbows tucked in, slowly curl the barbell up towards your chest. 2. Once the barbell is at chest level, pause for a moment and squeeze your biceps. 3. Slowly lower the barbell back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Take a deep breath as you begin to curl the barbell and hold your breath as you curl the barbell up. 2. Exhale as you slowly lower the barbell back to the starting position.


1. Stand in front of a barbell on an incline bench and grip the barbell shoulder-width apart with your palms facing away from you. 2. Make sure your elbows are tucked in close to your body and your arms are in line with your torso.
