This is one of the all-time classic exercises for your biceps. It's also one of the most effective exercises for building mounds of muscle onto your arms.

We would like to point out one issue that may arise when you do this exercise. Namely, some people feel discomfort in their forearms when doing this exercise. Your wrists and tendons may feel a bit sore after you do this exercise but that is normal as long as the soreness goes away.

If you continue to perform this exercise and you always feel discomfort in your wrists and forearms after you are done, then we suggest switching to the EZ bar - a bar that is curved for better gripping comfort. Every gym will have an EZ bar.
