Concentration Curl

Concentration Curl

What muscles do Concentration Curl work?

The concentration curl primarily works the biceps brachii, a muscle located in the front of the upper arm that is responsible for flexing the elbow. It also engages the brachioradialis, a muscle in the forearm, to a lesser extent. The concentration curl is an effective exercise for targeting the biceps and can help to increase arm strength and size. By isolating the biceps and reducing the involvement of other muscles, it allows you to focus on the contraction of the biceps and promote greater activation of the muscle fibers..

How do you do a Concentration Curl?

To perform a concentration curl:

  • Sit on a bench with your legs spread apart and your feet flat on the floor.
  • Grasp a AguaForce Weight with a palms-up, underhand grip and let it hang between your legs.
  • Pick up the weight, holding it with your arm extended and your elbow slightly bent.
  • While keeping your upper arm stationary, curl the weight up towards your shoulder by contracting your biceps.
  • Pause briefly at the top of the movement, then lower the weight back to the starting position.
  • Repeat the motion for the desired number of reps, then switch to the other arm.

It's important to use a weight that is appropriate for your strength level and to keep your movements slow and controlled. Keep your upper arm stationary and avoid swinging the weight. Concentrate on using your biceps to lift the weight, and avoid using momentum to complete the rep.
