How to Do a Dumbbell Curl on a Half Foam Roller Using Single Arm

The dumbbell curl on a half foam roller using a 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.

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

Beginning

Standing Dumbbell Curl 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

Standing Dumbbell Curl Movement

1. This exercise can be done using 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. The rounded portion of the roll should face the floor.

3. Hold the dumbbell in hand 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 dumbbell by bending at your elbow joint until it's leveled with your shoulders. Simultaneously, you should be rotating your forearm so that your palm is facing your shoulder at the end of the curl. 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 by straightening the elbow and return to your starting position. Repeat movement pattern for the specified amount of repetitions.
