Close-Grip Standing Barbell Curl
Main Muscle Worked: Biceps
Other Muscles Worked: None
Mechanics Type: Isolation
Tips: Works more of the outer biceps. Hold barbell with both hands, palms up and about 12 inches apart. Stand straight up with your head up and feet about shoulder width. Curl bar up in a semicircular motion until forearms touch your biceps. Keep your upper arms and elbow close your sides and do NOT move them during the entire lift. Do NOT swing or use momentum to lift the weight. Can also be done with a medium or wide grip.
