Strict Curl Overview

The Strict Curl is a focused bicep exercise that isolates the biceps by minimizing shoulder and body movement, promoting muscle growth and strength in the upper arm.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Barbell, Dumbbells

How To Perform the Strict Curl

  1. Stand upright with your back against a wall or bench, feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Hold a barbell or dumbbells with an underhand grip (palms facing up), arms fully extended downward.
  3. Keep your elbows close to your torso and avoid moving your shoulders.
  4. Curl the weight upwards by flexing your biceps, keeping your upper arms stationary.
  5. Continue to curl until the barbell or dumbbells are at shoulder level.
  6. Squeeze the biceps at the top of the movement, then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
