How To Do EZ Bar Curl

EZ Bar Curl Exercise

EZ Bar curl is a great exercise to build overall mass and strength of the bicep.

It’s also a popular choice to start any arms workout and a good alternative to the barbell curl as the shape of the bar will place less stress on the wrists, which is great for injury prevention.

EZ Bar Curl How To

  • Grip an EZ-curl bar with a shoulder width grip.  Stand with your back straight and chest out.
  • Keep your upper arms close to the body throughout the movement.
  • Curl the weight up while keeping elbows pointing straight down.  Squeeze the biceps and hold briefly.
  • Slowly lower the weight back down into starting position and repeat.

Form and Technique

It’s important to keep the back straight and never let momentum carry you through the exercise.

Bend your knees slightly to support your lower back and to avoid swinging the weight up.
