EZ Bar Curls Guide

  1. Exercise Type: Isolation - focuses on targeting and isolating specific muscle groups, allowing for targeted muscle development.
  2. Targeted Muscle Groups:
    • primary: biceps
    • secondary: forearm
    • tertiary: front deltoids, back deltoids
    • quaternary: abs, obliques, lower back

How to perform?

The EZ Bar Curls is an isolation exercise for the biceps. This exercise is performed using an EZ bar, which is a barbell with curved grips. The movement of the bar is isolated to the biceps, which is the primary muscle group being worked during the exercise. The secondary muscle group, the forearms, is also engaged to stabilize the bar. The shoulders, as a tertiary muscle group, are used to stabilize the shoulders.

Steps to perform:

  1. Stand with an EZ bar, hands gripping the inner bends of the bar.
  2. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart, maintaining a straight posture.
  3. Exhale as you curl the bar towards your shoulders, contracting your biceps.
  4. Keep your elbows close to your body and wrists in a comfortable, neutral position.
  5. Inhale as you lower the bar back down in a controlled manner.
  6. Focus on a full range of motion and avoid using excessive body sway.
  7. Choose a weight that challenges your biceps while allowing proper form.
  8. Use the EZ bar's ergonomic design to alleviate wrist stress.
  9. Include EZ bar curls for a varied and effective bicep workout.
