Triceps French Curl Exercise

Essential exercise...

This movement has always been one of the most popular exercises for the triceps.

You do need to take care when you lower the weight(s) to your forehead. If you feel unconfortable with the weight being lowered to your head then try lowering it slightly above your head. As You become more familiar with the movement you can concentrate on lowering it to your head.

This exercise can easily be varied using a straight bar one week and a curling bar the next week. You can also vary this exercise by using a wide grip one workout (hands 8-10 inches apart) and a close grip (hands 4-5 inches apart) the next workout.

How to perform The French Curls Exercise:

  1. Hold a 5 to 7 pound dumbbell overhead in each hand.
  2. Bend elbows and allow hands to descend behind head until lower arms are parallel to the floor. Return to start.
  3. Do 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.
