Zottman Curl Overview

The Zottman Curl is an effective bicep and forearm exercise combining a standard curl with a reverse curl to maximize strength and muscle engagement.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Zottman Curl

  1. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand with a supinated (palms-up) grip.
  2. Keep your elbows close to your torso and curl the weights up towards your shoulders while exhaling.
  3. Pause briefly at the top of the movement, then rotate your wrists to switch to a pronated (palms-down) grip.
  4. Slowly lower the dumbbells back down to the starting position in a controlled manner while inhaling.
  5. Rotate your wrists back to the supinated grip to prepare for the next repetition.
