How to Do Resistance Band Bicep Curls

The resistance band bicep curls should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the resistance band bicep curls.

Beginning

Beginning Resistance Band Bicep Curl

1. Place both feet on the resistance band and hold the handles long by your sides, palms facing ahead.

3. Slowly return your arms to their starting position.

Movement

Resistance Band Bicep Curl Movement

1. Attach the tubing at a low point and step back until there is resistance to the band. Keep a shoulder-width stance and draw up your spine. Make sure that your head, shoulders, hips, and knees are in line. Hold the dumbbell and band handle in one hand while relaxing your arm next to the side with full extension. Your palm should be facing forward.

2. Tighten up your core muscles, pull your shoulders back and down, then curl the dumbbell and band handle up to your shoulders by bending your elbow. Keep your upper arm tucked into your torso and your elbow tight to your waist. Only your forearm will be moving.

3. Perform the required repetitions on one side, then switch sides.

Benefits

Resistance Band Bicep Curl Benefits

You can perform this exercise at home or in the gym.

This variation of the traditional biceps curl exercise strengthens the biceps muscles in the front of the upper arms. The effort required to resist the band/tubing as you lower the handle adds a different stimulus to the muscle.
