Preacher Curl Overview

The Preacher Curl isolates the biceps by using a preacher bench, allowing for strict form and enhanced muscle contraction.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Preacher Bench, Barbell or Dumbbells

How To Perform the Preacher Curl

  1. Adjust the preacher bench so the pad rests comfortably under your armpits.
  2. Sit on the bench and grasp a barbell or dumbbells with an underhand grip, shoulder-width apart.
  3. Position your upper arms against the pad, extending your arms fully.
  4. Curl the weight towards your shoulders by flexing your elbows, keeping your upper arms stationary.
  5. Squeeze your biceps at the top of the movement.
  6. Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position, fully extending your arms.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
  8. Exhale while curling the weight up and inhale while lowering it.
