Incline Curls for Bigger Biceps


I remember my years of training, when I’d spend hours browsing through the pages of Arnold’s Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding. This picture (or one very similar) really caught my attention, and incline dumbbell curls have been one of my favorite bicep exercises ever since.

The advantage of laying on an inclined bench is pretty simple: it helps you isolate the biceps by reducing the involvement of other muscles.  It’s a pretty straightforward exercise, but I’ll offer a couple of tips.

*You’ll need to use less weight than you would with most standing variations of curling.

*Try to rotate your wrists as you raise the dumbbells so that your pinky is slightly higher than your index finger.

Try this exercise to your arm training to isolate the biceps and add variety to your arm training.
