EZ Bar Preacher Curls are one of the best bicep building exercises.
There are two main benefits to doing EZ bar preacher curls in your bicep workout.
The first benefit is that the EZ bar takes pressure off your wrists. Because the bar is curved, your wrist does not have to be completely turned up (supinated), and this takes some pressure off the wrist joint.
The second benefit is that the preacher bench provides some added stability, so you will generally be able to lift a little more weight compared with standing. Also, the preacher bench helps to isolate the biceps, so you slightly more muscle work.
Below are pictures for this bicep exercise.
Starting Position: Begin by sitting at the preacher bench and place your elbows on the preacher bench. You can use either a close grip or a shoulder width grip. Grasp the bar with your palms facing up.
Form: Exhale and curl the weight towards you. Hold for a brief second and then slowly lower to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: In this exercise it can be difficult to keep your shoulders in the correct position. If you feel your shoulders tipping forwards during this exercise, try using a lighter weight or perform a different exercise.
Most people have poor posture, and our shoulders have the tendency to tip forwards. When the shoulders tip forward and out of good posture excess pressure is placed on the shoulder. So be mindful of the position of your shoulders.
