Hammer Curls Exercise: One-Arm Seated Hammer Curl

Alternate Name: -
START POSITIONEXECUTION
Sit down on a flat or military bench and grab a hold of the dumbbell "hammer" style with your arm extended and down at your side. This is your starting position.While keeping the upper portion of your arm (from your elbow to shoulder) tight up against your body and fixed, raise the dumbbell all the way up and then lower it back down but don't extend your arm all the way. You should always keep tension in your bicep for maximum effectiveness.

Repeat entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions and then switch and do the exercise with your other arm.

DODON'T
  • Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
  • Don't extended your arms completely on the downward portion of the movement

  • Don't swing your arm in an attempt to lift the dumbbell easier; this is cheating and does nothing for your biceps
SPECIAL NOTES & LEVEL of DIFFICULTY VARIATIONS

This is a great exercise for your biceps. Hammer curls are used to extend the lower head of the biceps to give them a more complete look that is fuller and more impressive to the eye.

This movement can be done with both arms or one arm at a time as depicted in the animation above. The key to getting the most out of this exercise is not to cheat - no swinging of the dumbbell.
