Spider Curl Overview

The Spider Curl is an isolation exercise targeting the biceps, performed on an incline bench to maximize muscle contraction and minimize momentum, enhancing bicep strength and definition.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Incline Bench, Dumbbells or Barbell

How To Perform the Spider Curl

  1. Adjust an incline bench to a 45-degree angle.
  2. Lie face down on the bench, chest and stomach supported, with your feet firmly planted on the floor.
  3. Hold a barbell or dumbbells with an underhand grip (palms facing up), arms fully extended downward.
  4. Keep your upper arms stationary and close to the bench, and curl the weight towards your shoulders by contracting your biceps.
  5. Pause and squeeze your biceps at the top of the movement.
  6. Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position, maintaining control throughout the descent.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
