Many people have difficulty with exercise.  There are various reasons for this, one of which is that they don’t know the proper forms.  To do any exercise, proper form is very important.  Without the proper form, you risk injuries, which lead people to believe that not doing the exercise is better than injuring yourself to do them.  Other reasons might be that they feel that there simply isn’t enough time, especially if they are new to certain exercises and aren’t sure of the proper forms, or they simply don’t like to exercise.  Bicep curls are a quick exercise that can take only a few minutes a day, but it can dramatically increase your arm muscles and lead to a healthier lifestyle.

  1. For bicep curls, you can either be sitting or standing, but it’s easier when you’re sitting.  First sit down and make sure you’re comfortable.  Do not cross your legs.
  2. Tuck your arm in close to your body.  You don’t want your arms to be too far from your body while doing bicep curls.
  3. Make sure that the weight you are using is comfortable.  Don’t try to start with too much.  If you can’t easily lift the weights, or if it is at all uncomfortable for you, use a few pounds less.
  4. Put your arm at a right angle and lift slowly.  Stop a couple inches from your shoulder and lower your arm again.  Repeat 10 to 12 times before resting for a short time.  Do as many repetitions as you are comfortable doing.
