This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are performing biceps curls with dumbbells. Biceps curls are one of the most popular exercises both in the gym and at home, but there are some key details that are often overlooked.

One issue that is often presented when doing biceps curls is not monitoring what is happening at the shoulder during the exercise. Not only can this reduce the effectiveness of the exercise for the biceps, but it can also lead to potential issues with the biceps tendon if too much motion and or too much speed are used during the exercise.

So what should be happening at your shoulders? This small cue can make all the difference in how your body responds to this exercise.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss more considerations for doing biceps curls with dumbbells.
