How to Do Dumbbell Curl on Half Foam Roller

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the dumbbell curl on half foam roller.

Beginning

Dumbbell Curl Standing Beginning

1. At all times, the biceps should be under stress. Allowing them to hang at the end of the activity is not a good idea.

2. Keep the reps slow and the weight under control throughout the set.

3. Do not allow the dumbbells to come into contact with your body.

4. Finally, when curling up the weight, do not swing your body back.

Movement

Dumbbell Curl Movement

1. This exercise can be done with either one or two halved foam rolls.

2. Place two half foam rolls vertically on the ground, about shoulder-width apart. If you have only one half foam roll, place it horizontally to you. The rounded portion of the roll should face the floor.

3. Hold the dumbbells in both hands and step onto the rolls. Lift the spine and make sure that your head is in line with your shoulders, hips, and knees. Keep your knees slightly bent, and look ahead. This will help you balance. Your arms should be fully extended at your sides with your palms facing the thighs.

4. Tighten your abdominals and bring your shoulders back and down away from the ears. Curl the dumbbells by bending at your elbow joints until weights are level with your shoulders. Simultaneously, you should be rotating your forearms so that your palms are facing your shoulders at the of of the curl. Make sure that your upper arms remain tight and next to the torso throughout the exercise. Your elbows should not move forward or back, and should not flare out. Only your forearms should be moving.

5. Lower the dumbbells by straightening the elbows and return to your starting position. Repeat movement pattern for the specified amount of repetitions.
