How To Seated Close-Grip Concentration Curl
Seated Close-Grip Concentration Curl Benefits
- This exercise is a slightly more difficult version of the normal dumbbell concentration exercise and may not be suitable for beginners. Seated close-grip concentration curl are a great arm movement to stimulate the muscle fibers at the top of the brachialis muscle and biceps. Because you turn your arm in toward your body when you do concentration curls, it helps to place more focus on the long head of the biceps, which makes up the mass of the biceps peak.
- In this exercise, light weights should be preferred instead of lifting too much weight. Seated close-grip concentration curl limits your range of motion to increase the effectiveness of the movement. That’s why in this version barbell or Z-Bar is used.
