Bodybuilding Exercises : Bodybuilding: Standing Bicep Barbell Curls
45 Comments


What I’ll be performing here is the standing
bicep barbell curl. Now what you want to do here, definitely you do not want to swing.
You want to keep a strict posture. Bring up the barbell, squeeze the bicep. Do not keep
it up here for too long because you want to keep tension on the bicep. You don’t want
to bring it up too high. When you bring it down control the weight coming down, stretch
the bicep out and come back again. Squeeze the bicep. So you want to do about 8-10 reps
with this motion. Just focus on flexing the bicep and keeping a good stretch. Now you
don’t want to do it too quickly and you don’t want to do it too slow as well. Just a nice
steady motion, and if you wanted to also you could do it halfway to change something up
and give it a nice little twist, and that’s how you do the standing barbell bicep curl.

  1. Lol from how childish your comments are I would say your a little shit who comes on youtube thinking because youv done weights in school you know everything.

  2. it just keeps your breathing really. people have a tendency to tense up and hold their breath while lifting. Breathing regularly slows the build up of lactic acid (which is the burn you feel) in your muscles.

  3. if you swing you might be able to lift more but it doesn't do shit because you are just using momentum to lift the extra weight rather than your muscles. if you want to build muscle and not just look cool then don't swing

  4. start the exercise off with an exhale..and the barbell hanging…remember to keep elbows in at sides, flexed and locked, and starting lifting…palms straight up all the way (USE ONLY STRAIGHT BARBELL IF POSSIBLE)…this way the bicep is contracted, and it will work the whole bicep muscle group…once your forearms touch your biceps, pause for a second, and inhale…lower bar and repeat

  5. it works the while Bicep, im a 16 yr old kid, i am 6'1" and 185 lbs, to tone i lift 45lbs 3set 10rep, to build strength and muscle i lift 90+ lbs 1set 10reps

  6. @j0rb3n i will absolutely admit that was terrible advice.. worst advice ever, maybe not so much. i hadnt started working out seriously then, and pretty much had no idea of what i was doing

  7. pls answer this is this good to get big biceps i train monday cheast triceps abs Wednesday back shoulder friday bicep legs is it good to make the bicep grow big

  8. when I do barbell curls… my forearms hurt more than my biceps… help what am I diong wrong? My form is correct…

  9. hey man I read in a forum that it may be some kid of "tendonitis." I also read it may due to our forearms being too weak. My forearms are in fact very weak so maybe this is why it hurts so fucking bad when I do EZ curls. I also read preacher curls are best for biceps, even better than EZ curls (barbell curls = not recommended), so I have decided to stop doing EZ curls and I will order a preacher curl bench to do preacher curls from now on + bicep concentration curls. I will also have to go to

  10. to go to the gym so that I can use the cables for the biceps. Anyway: preacher curls + concentration curls + cable curls = big biceps. We don't need EZ curls since we can do preacher curls. But I am pretty sure it is due to my forearms being so fucking weak. I need to ask you are your forearms also very weak because if you say yes then my hypothesis is correct, and if you say no, then you and I have… tendonitis WTF… I'll wait for your response!

  11. Actually the negative motion is the one that breaks down the muscle, so you can swing to get it up and still build muscle perfectly fine….

  12. I see. So perhaps the hypothesis that our forearms are weak and that that is why we experience the pain, is plausible. Perhaps we don't have tendonitis.

  13. @vzrudek yep i agree. It was tough when I was working out hard and no muscles were coming in my thin body. But really I encourage you set aside just 10 minutes and make up your mind for yourself. just follow what video is saying to you here –> bit.ly/MF1F7k?=okggfy
