Bicep Barbell Curls
The Best Biceps Exercise

Many bodybuilders think that bicep barbell curls are the best biceps exercise.

If you want to get big biceps, using the barbell in your bicep workout is a must.

Bicep Curls with the barbell are a simple but effective biceps exercise.

I always recommend bicep curls with the barbell for people who want to improve their bicep strength, and I also recommend it for people who want to get big biceps.

Best Biceps Exercises: Barbell Bicep Curls

Starting Position: Begin with your hands at shoulder width. Use an underhand grip.

Form: Exhale and slowly bend your elbows towards your chest. Hold briefly at the top of the motion and then slowly lower to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: Just like other biceps exercises, you should move in a controlled manner so that momentum doesn't take over.

In addition, you should be mindful of your posture and keep your spine stable by engaging your core muscles. If you feel your lower back moving, that's generally a sign that the weight is too heavy.

Some people prefer close grip bicep curls with the barbell instead of shoulder width.

Another great biceps exercise is dumbbell bicep curls.
