Description

The flat bench dumbbell curl is a very interesting exercise. Although not a popular biceps exercise, it is an odd movement that eliminates all cheating. There is simply no way you can cheat at this exercise so it is a pure isolation exercise that directly targets the biceps muscle.

Secondary muscles include the front deltoids (shoulders), and forearms.

To get the most from this exercise, pick a light to moderate weight and really concentrate on contracting your biceps throught the entire movement. It may take a few workouts, but you'll get the hang of this exercise.
