Tips for Performing Incline Inner Biceps Curl

  • Controlled Movements: Avoid the temptation to use momentum or swing the weights. The key to this exercise is slow, controlled movements. Lift the weights in a controlled manner, squeeze at the top of the movement, and then slowly lower the weights back down. This will ensure that your biceps are doing the work and not your shoulders or back.
  • Right Weight: Using weights that are too heavy is a common mistake. This can lead to poor form and potential injury. Choose a weight that allows you to complete the desired number of reps while maintaining good form. If you can't do this, the weight is likely too heavy.
