How to Do Concentration Curls

  1. Sit on a bench with a dumbbell in hand. Lean your elbow onto the inside of your leg.
  2. Lift the dumbbell with control by flexing your elbow.
  3. Reverse the movement and lower the dumbbell back to the starting position.


Concentration curl is an exercise where it is easy to focus on the muscle contact with your biceps, and it is difficult to cheat by letting other muscles take over the work.
