The key to this exercise is the incline. This slight change in the angle is what targets your lower head and gives you a fuller and more elongated look to your biceps. You may need to do a few practice reps with a light dumbbell just to get a feel for the mechanics of this exercise - we certainly recommend doing this if you are a beginner.

Another thing to point out is that you don't have to do this exercise on your knee; you can do it standing up as long as you find an adjustable bench that is higher and has a longer backrest pad. You can even do a modified version of this exercise on a high preacher bench or a free-standing preacher stand (well-equipped gyms will usually have this one).
