This is a very effective exercise for the biceps. However, it's not for absolute beginners because the movement is not as simple to execute as it looks. The synchronicity of the two dumbbells is essential to the effectiveness of the exercise. Thus, if you do happen to be a beginner and still insist on doing this exercise, start with a lightweight pair of dumbbells for a few weeks until you get used to the movement and the balancing aspect involved in doing this exercise.

If you're a seasoned and experienced lifter, this exercise will be the perfect plateau-busting mixer to throw into an existing bicep workout routine!
