REPS 10 (each side) SETS 3 REST 30 seconds
1. Stand behind a bench angled at 45 degrees. Keep a wide stance, tuck in your tailbone, and engage lower abdominal muscles for better stability.
2. With a dumbbell in your right hand (start with 10 to 15 pounds), lean forward to place your entire arm against the backrest of the bench.
3. Engage your biceps and slowly curl the weight up to your shoulder (pictured). Keep your shoulder still and your upper arm against the bench.
4. Pause for one second and slowly lower back to the starting position. Do 10 reps, then switch arms.
