Straight Bar Bicep Curl

This is a bicep curl you likely won't have tried before. Get those stabilizer muscles moving!

tim_mccomsey_bicep_curl_barbell_stabilizer_workout_arm_picTim McComsey, trainer, dietician, model, fitness expert, and Sunwarrior Ambassador superstar, hits the gym again with a straight bar bicep curl that focuses on one arm at a time. This exercise will strengthen your core, but it really isolates that bicep muscle, forcing it to stabilize the longer bar.

Use a bar you can handle, like five or ten pounds. You’ll do 10-12 reps on each side. Hold the bar exactly in the middle. You don’t want it to be off balance, twisting and bending to the sides is highly discouraged by Tim astim_mccomsey_bicep_curl_barbell_stabilizer_workout_pic this increases the chance of injury and moves the focus away from your bicep where you want it.

Keep your shoulders back, your chest high, and your stomach tight. This also limits the chances of injury while giving your core a little love. Exhale up, inhale down, keeping your core tight and strong. Switch sides. You’ll notice that one arm handles this better. That’s pretty normal, since we tend to have a dominant arm with better muscle memory. Don’t let that stop you or slow you down. This workout is here for you when you need it.
