Alternate Biceps Curl

Alternate Biceps Curl

What muscles do Alternate Biceps Curl work?

The alternate biceps curl primarily works the biceps brachii, a muscle located in the front of the upper arm that is responsible for flexing the elbow and supinating the forearm. It also engages the brachioradialis, the brachialis, and the pronator teres to a lesser extent. The biceps curl is a classic exercise for targeting and strengthening the biceps muscles.

How do you do a Alternate Biceps Curl?

To perform an Alternate Biceps Curl exercise:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a pair of AguaForce Weights with an underhand grip (palms facing up).
  • Keep your shoulders relaxed and your core engaged.
  • Keeping your elbows close to your sides, curl one AguaForce Weight towards your shoulder, flexing your elbow.
  • Pause briefly at the top, then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  • Repeat the motion with the other arm.
  • Continue alternating arms for the desired number of reps.

It's important to use a weight that is appropriate for your strength level and to keep your movements smooth and controlled, avoiding any swinging or momentum. Keep your neck and spine in a neutral position, avoiding any excessive arching or rounding of the back. Also, make sure to keep your elbows close to your sides throughout the exercise, and avoid lifting the weights too high, as this can put unnecessary strain on your shoulder joint.
