Great Biceps and a better grip are some of the after-effects of Hammer Curls!

Your biceps, the muscles that runs across the front of your upper arms, are the main muscles stimulated. At the same time, the forearm muscles – the brachioradialis – are worked since they help to stabilize the arms throughout the movement.

Working out the muscle in this angle helps to build grip strength as well. Your wrists and finger flexors are actively involved just by holding the dumbbells. The greater the number of repetitions, the greater time they stay under tension, getting your muscles stronger.

Remember that strong arms are not only needed at the gym but are valuable tools on your everyday life.

 

How To:

Perform the exercise by standing straight while holding a pair of dumbbells at arm’s length next to your sides. Let the palm of your hands face your thighs. Then, bend your elbows and curl the dumbbells up to the shoulders. Pause, then slowly lower the weights back to the starting position until your arms have straightened. Repeat.
