Drag Curls

We gave this exercise as an example for keeping the elbows behind the body.

Keep in mind this is a relatively heavy movement, so don’t be afraid to up the intensity on this one.

Now let’s take an in-depth look at it and see why it is so good for bicep peak development.

execution

  1. 1
    Grab the barbell with a shoulder-width, underhand grip
  2. 2
    Stand up straight and place feet in a balanced way
  3. 3
    Look up and avoid slouching your shoulders
  4. 4
    Place the elbows behind the body
  5. 5
    Keep the bar close to your body
  6. 6
    Curl up, contracting the biceps up top
  7. 7
    After briefly holding the peak flexion, return down slowly on the eccentric phase
Note: Maintain a static position of the wrists – If you flex the wrists too much, a LOT of the tension will go to the forearms!
