How To Perform the EZ Bar Curl

  1. Start by standing upright with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding an EZ bar with an underhand grip (palms facing up) at shoulder-width.
  2. Keep your elbows close to your torso and your back straight.
  3. Exhale and curl the bar upwards, contracting your biceps, while keeping your upper arms stationary.
  4. Continue lifting until your biceps are fully contracted and the bar is at shoulder level.
  5. Hold the contracted position for a second and squeeze your biceps.
  6. Inhale and slowly lower the bar back to the starting position, fully extending your arms.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
