Finally, repeat entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.

This is a great exercise for building bicep muscles. The advantage of the EZ bar is that it's very comfortable to grip and it's low impact on your forearms. Thus, one of the main reasons people choose the EZ bar over the straight bar (barbell) is that it provides them with less of a strain on the forearm tendons and muscles.

One thing to keep in mind is that the weight of the bar will pull you forward, which means that you need to lean back just a touch to offset it.
