Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Dumbbells, Bench

How To Perform the Seated Dumbbell Curl

  1. Sit on a bench with a back support, feet flat on the floor, and hold a dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip.
  2. Let your arms hang down by your sides, fully extended with palms facing inward.
  3. Keeping your upper arms stationary, curl the dumbbells while rotating your wrists so that your palms face upward by the end of the movement.
  4. Lift the dumbbells until your biceps are fully contracted and the dumbbells are at shoulder level. Hold the contraction for a brief moment.
  5. Slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position, rotating your wrists back to the neutral grip.
