Incline Bicep Curls

There aren't many ways to change a bicep curl, but one way to make the exercise a bit more challenging is to do them at an incline. You can do this on an incline bench or use an exercise ball, as shown. Because you're at an incline, you'll have to work a bit harder against gravity, so you may want to use a lighter weight. 

  1. Sit on the ball with the weights resting on the thighs.
  2. Slowly walk the feet forward until you're at an incline with the ball supporting your back, weights hanging down with palms facing out.
  3. Bend the elbows and bring the weights towards the shoulder without swinging the arms.
  4. Lower back down, keeping a slight bend in the elbow at the bottom of the movement (don't lock the joints).
  5. Repeat for 1-3 sets of 10-16 reps.
