How To Perform the Hammer Curl

  1. Stand upright with feet shoulder-width apart, holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides with a neutral grip (palms facing your body).
  2. Keep your elbows close to your torso and maintain a straight back throughout the exercise.
  3. Exhale and curl the dumbbells upward while keeping the palms facing each other.
  4. Continue lifting until the dumbbells reach shoulder level and your biceps are fully contracted.
  5. Hold the top position for a moment, squeezing your biceps.
  6. Inhale and slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
