Instructions for EZ Bar Curl

To perform a set of EZ bar curl:

  1. Starting Position

    Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and hold an EZ bar in both hands, with a supinated grip spaced shoulder width apart. The trunk should be in a neutral position with the arms and legs straight.

  2. Concentric (Upward) Motion

    While keeping your arms close to your body, bend your elbows to raise the bar under control to shoulder height. Remember to squeeze the bar tightly, breathe normally and maintain full body tension throughout the entire movement.

  3. Top position

    Pause at the top position for a 1sec count while maintaining full body tension and squeezing your biceps.

  4. Eccentric (Lowering) Motion

    Lower the bar under control back to the arms straight position while continuing to keep your arms close to your body.

  5. End position

    Repeat steps 1 through 4 until you have completed the desired number of EZ bar curl repetitions before resting.

This completes one set of EZ bar curl.
