This exercise is not one that you will see people doing often at the gym. It may feel a bit awkward to execute the first couple of times, but once you get used to you will reap the benefits of this movement. The benefits to your biceps are that you will get your lower bicep head elongated very nicely as this is what this exercise will primarily do.

Also, remember to keep your head fully rested on the bench. Lifting your head up will only put unnecessary strain on your neck muscles. Thus, keep your head down while performing this exercise.
