Dumbbell Hammer Curls

Starting Position
Stand or sit, grasping a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing inward.

EXHALE: Curl the dumbbells to your shoulders (alternating arms or simultaneously).

INHALE: Lower the weight slowly to the starting position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions
Make sure upper body is stable and you are not leaning back with each curl. Unlike a standard biceps curl, your palms are facing inward throughout the movement. Keep elbows in at your sides.
