One of my go to arm exercises!
The Seated Incline Dumbbell Bicep curl(alternate reps bc I like to concentrate on each rep). I feel this movement in my biceps a lot which is why I love it.
As you can see here, I'm not "ego lifting". Only curling 25lb dumbbells in each hand, and remaining fully controlled with the weight. I'm lifting for hypertrophy aka muscle growth so my reps are b/t 8-12 reps. I usually go 3-4 sets of 8 reps.
I'll never understand someone lifting more than they can control at whatever stage they're at in their lifting "career". Fun fact, your muscles don't know the number of the weight you're lifting. So increasing weight or lifting "heavy" should only be done when the load of the light weight no longer CHALLENGES your muscles, not to show off.
Here are a few tips to take note of during the lift:
- Keep the elbows close to your torso(this is your starting position).
- Only the forearms should move. Don't swing at your shoulders and try to minimize arm swing(lower weight if unable to do so).
- DO NOT fully extend on the way down!(If you look closely, I don't fully let my arm extend at the bottom of the movement allowing the tension to still be kept until the next rep)
P.S. - Pardon the nip slip, chest too big(or shirt too small) -- haha 😊
