Standing Alternate Dumbbell Cross Body Biceps Curls

Biceps - Standing Alternate Dumbbell Cross Body Biceps Curls

  1. Take hold of some suitable weight dumbbells. Plant your feet firmly, knees bent slightly. Your core is tight and your torso straight. Your arms hang down outstretched on the sides of your body, taking the weight of the dumbbells, palms facing each other. This is the starting position.
  2. Commence the movement by curling one dumbbell at a time, up from the elbow joint, across the body toward the opposing shoulder. Squeeze your biceps and exhale through the movement. Do not use momentum to throw the dumbbell up. The torso should remain stationary. 
  3. When the top of the dumbbell touches the opposing shoulder, squeeze for a second and then reverse the movement by extending the arms to the starting position, inhaling as you do. 
  4. Repeat on the other side and alternate repetitions in this manner.
