About the Preacher Curl Exercise
Due to the angle, the preacher curl exercise is an excellent way to target the biceps – particularly the lower portion of the muscle. When performing the preacher curl exercise, it’s important to keep your back and neck in an upright position and your elbows on the padding. Doing so will prevent injuries to both the spine and the elbows.

How To Perform the Preacher Curl Exercise
- Grasp the easy-curl bar, sit down and ensure that you don’t round your shoulders or allow your head to protrude forward.
- Exhale and while keeping your triceps in contact with the pad, flex your arms, drawing your palms towards your shoulders.
- Inhale and lower weight down in a controlled motion until your arms reach full extension.
- Repeat until the desired number of repetitions are completed.
Variations to the Preacher Curl Exercise
Using dumbbells instead of an easy-curl bar when performing the preacher curl exercise allows you to strengthen one arm at a time. The use of dumbbells also allows you to rotate your palm upwards throughout the contraction – which further enhances the recruitment of the biceps.
