This is a great exercise that is one of the best exercises for your biceps (upper head - see muscle anatomy chart). You should include it in your bicep exercise regimen on a regular basis.

This exercise is most effective when it's done in a slow and controlled manner. You don't want to rush this movement. Once you get used to it, try to constantly increase the dumbbell weight. If your goal is to grow your biceps bigger, then you need to blast them with heavy weights. If you goal is to tone only, then you don't need to focus on increasing the weights too much.
