Exercise Of The Week: Seated Bicep Curl

This week, we’ll start a series of weekly exercises that can be completed in a seated position. First, we’ll provide an overview of how to complete a seated bicep curl.

  • Starting Position: Sit so that your head, shoulders and butt make contact with the chair, and place your feet firmly on the floor.
  • Grasp two dumbbells with palms facing upwards, arms down at your sides.
  • Push your shoulders back, and avoid making a shrugging motion.

  • Exhale and slowly bend each elbow in unison, bringing the dumbbells towards your chest without arching your back or moving your elbows forward.
  • Make sure to keep head, shoulder and butt aligned, and firm against the back of the chair.
  • Keep your feet firmly placed on the floor and avoid shrugging your shoulders during the lift.
  • Slowly lower the dumbbells back into the starting position.

  • Repeat three sets of fifteen lifts, taking a two-minute break between sets. If you are unable to complete the set initially, start with eight repetitions, and slowly work your way up.

Please speak to your provider before starting any new exercise regimen.
