Begin with the hands just outside of shoulder-width apart and a supinated grip (palms facing towards you). Keep the elbows locked into your waist and bring the barbell up to almost meet your chest. Kemp says to 'We’re really looking for that slow controlled eccentric movement, 3-4 seconds on the decent, to keep the biceps under tension.'
Cutting Tips Carbide Start with the dumbbells either side of your body with a neutral grip (palms facing towards the hips). Keep the elbows glued to your waist and bring both dumbbells up to meet your shoulders. Kemp adds 'Get a good squeeze at the top and control the weight back down.
