Purpose of Exercise:
TO DEVELOP THE LOWER AREA OF THE BICEPS AND LENGTHEN THE BICEPS MUSCLE.

This is especially good for anyone who has space between the lower biceps and the elbow joint, to fill in and shape this are and help to create thickness throughout the biceps.

Execution:
Preacher Curls are an even stricter movement than regular Barbell Curls.
Position yourself with your chest against the bench, your arms extending over it. This puts the arms at an angle, which transfers additional stress to the lower area of the muscle. Take hold ofa barbell with an underhand grip.

Holding your body steady, curl the bar all the way up and then lower it again to full extension, resisting the weight on the way down. You can use an E-Z curl bar for this movement, or even use the bench for One-Arm Dumbbell Curls.

Warning:
Don’t lean back as you lift the bar, and deliberately flex the muscle extra hard as you come to the top of the movement, where there is little actual stress on the biceps muscles.

Variations:
Preacher Curls can also be done with an E-Z curl bar.
Doing Preacher Curls with dumbbells forces each arm to work independently. Doing this exercise with the dumbbells together works the outer biceps and done with the dumbbells apart works the inner biceps.
