CONCENTRATION CURL INSTRUCTIONS
1. Sit down on a bench holding a dumbbell in your left hand, and rest your elbow on the inside of your left thigh.
2. Squeeze the left biceps and bring the dumbbell toward your chest.
3. Lower the left arm to the starting position, repeat, and then switch arms.
PROPER FORM AND BREATHING PATTERN
Keep your chest up, face front, relax your neck and back, and breathe out as you curl and bring the dumbbell toward the chest. Inhale as you lower the dumbbell back to the starting position and be careful not to hyperextend your elbow.
The concentration curl targets the biceps and helps to develop muscle strength and power. This exercise sculpts the front portion of the upper arm and improves body aesthetics and function.
