What muscles do Reverse Grip Concentration Curl work?
The reverse grip 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 reverse grip concentration curl is an effective exercise for targeting the biceps and can help to increase arm strength and size..
How do you do a Reverse Grip Concentration Curl?
To perform a reverse grip 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-down, overhand 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.
