This is one of the most effective exercises for the lower head of your biceps. On this exercise the biceps gets a good stretch and the angle combined with the weight forces the biceps to develop into an elongated shape which gives the biceps a more complete look.

The key to this exercise is really the pace. Not rushing it will have much more effects than if you attempt to lift the dumbbells by swinging them up.

Also keep in mind that the angle of the bench is important. If you lower past (less than) the 45 degree angle you may be putting too much pressure on your elbow joints and shoulders. Thus, make sure you do not go to far back down when you adjust the bench.
