How to Do a Stability Ball Bicep Curl With Raised Leg and Single Arm

The stability ball bicep curl with raised leg and single arm 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.

Movement

1. Hold the dumbbell in your hand, and stand with the stability ball behind you. Bring one leg back and place the front of the foot on the center of the stability ball's dome. Slightly bend the front knee to help with balance.

2. Lift the spine and make sure that your head is in line with your shoulders, hips, and knees. Keep your supporting knee slightly bent, and look ahead. This will help you balance. Keep your lower body slightly tensed to help steady you.

3. Your arms should be fully extended at your sides with your palms facing your thighs. Once you feel comfortable in the position, tighten your abdominals and pull your shoulders away from your ears.

4. Bend your elbow and curl the dumbbell until it reaches shoulder height. Simultaneously, you should be rotating your forearm, so that at the top of the curl, your palm is facing your shoulder. Make sure that your upper arm remains tight and next to the torso throughout the exercise. Your elbow should not move forward or back, and should not flare out. Only your forearm should be moving.

5. Lower the dumbbell with control by straightening the elbow and return to your original position.

6. Continue to repeat the exercise until you've completed all repetitions.
