Incline Dumbbell Biceps Curl

The incline dumbbell biceps curl develops size and strength in the biceps and forearms. The incline angle places more resistance on the lower portion of the bicep.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your elbows stationary throughout the movement.
  • Make sure to squeeze your biceps at the top of the lift.
  • Be sure to lower the weight all the way until your arms are fully extended.
  • Do not swing the weight. Perform a strict curl and do not use momentum.
