Wide Grip Biceps Curl Exercise
Work those all-important biceps not just to be buff, but for ease in every day tasks that use these precious muscles.
The primary function of the bicep muscle is to move the forearm towards the shoulder (elbow flexion). The secondary function is supination of the forearm, which means turning the hand from a palms down position to a palms-up position.
Doing the wide grip bicep curls on a regular basis can help bring you more complete bicep development than the typical, random curls.
How to perform The Wide Grip Biceps Curl Exercise:
- Grab a workout bar with an underhand grip, your hands as far apart as comfortable.
- Hold the bar down at arm's length in front of you.
- Bend at the elbows and curl the bar as high as you can without moving your elbows forward or back.
- Pause, then slowly lower the bar.
