Barbell Preacher Curl

Muscles Worked

Muscles worked by preacher curl




  • Grab a barbell and sit down at a preacher curl bench, resting your upper arms against the pad.
  • Lower the barbell as far as you can, with control.
  • Reverse the motion and return to the starting position.


Preacher curl is an effective exercise for isolating and focusing on the arm flexors. If fully extending your arms feels uncomfortable, you can avoid that position by reversing the movement earlier.
