incline dumbbell curl
The incline dumbbell curl is a variation of the dumbbell curl and an exercise used to build bigger biceps. Performing this curl on an incline bench elongates the negative portion of the dumbbell curl, creating a deeper stretch on the biceps. It helps build sleeve-popping bicepss. It is usually performed in moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set and great for a finisher.
INCLINE DUMBBELL CURL BENEFITS:
- Adds size and definition to the biceps
- Positioning on the incline bench helps isolate the biceps and enforce strict form
- Great burnout movement on arm day
