Overview of the Dumbbell Preacher Curl

A dumbbell preacher curl is a kind of preacher curl that specifically targets the biceps.

Angled preacher curl variants allow for a more intense concentric part of the curl. This is good for developing bicep peaks and encouraging the biceps to pump.

Bodybuilders would use the dumbbell preacher curl routine to help them create bigger biceps. If you want to create a more visually beautiful physique, do this single exercise towards the conclusion of your exercises.

How Do You Do It?

  • Select a weight from the rack, then sit up upright with your chest against the preacher bench.
  • Using a supinated (palms facing up) hold, push your upper arm firmly against the pad.
  • Deep breaths, then slowly lift the weight away from your shoulder.
  • Once the bicep has reached its full length, curl the weight back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the required number of times on both sides.

Tips for Dumbbell Preacher Curls

  • Maintain biceps tension by keeping the elbow slightly bent at the bottom of the movement.
  • By practicing the exercise with a gradual eccentric movement, tension and the mind-muscle connection may be enhanced (lowering component).
