Reverse Barbell Curl Overview

The Reverse Barbell Curl targets the biceps and forearms, emphasizing the brachialis and brachioradialis muscles through a reverse grip, enhancing arm strength and definition.

Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Reverse Barbell Curl

  1. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a barbell with an overhand grip (palms facing down) at shoulder-width.
  2. Keep your elbows close to your torso and your back straight.
  3. Curl the barbell upwards by contracting your biceps, ensuring your forearms do most of the lifting.
  4. Continue to lift until your biceps are fully contracted and the barbell is at shoulder level.
  5. Hold the contraction for a moment, then slowly lower the barbell back to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of reps, maintaining controlled movements throughout.
  7. Inhale as you lower the barbell and exhale as you lift it.
