Varying training methods, angles and weights within the same exercise is very beneficial for working in depth and on all segments of a muscle.
Here, it is a variant of the classic biceps curl, we alternate the simultaneous and alternating work, unilateral with different angles of work on the concentric phase. Isolation of the biceps, background reinforcement and strength work, here is a complete movement.
Follow these instructions for the neutral dumbbell curl
- 1. Have two dumbbells in each hand in neutral grip (hands facing each other).
- 2. Standing upright, with flat back, feet at pelvis width, and knees slightly bent, raise dumbbells up to elbow height.
- 3. Then return to the starting position and continue your series by repeating the movement the number of times defined for this series.

You can follow these tips, advice and techniques to go further on the neutral dumbbell curl
- 1. Keep your eyes in front of you to help you stay upright and protect your neck.
