Exercise Description and Instruction:

This version of the Bicep Curl adds Deadlifts, one of the best Compound Exercises.

Due to the bicep curl portion of the exercise, you can only use a limited amount of weight. Therefore, this exercise is primarily a bicep exercise and should be used in fat loss workouts rather than muscle building workouts. Let’s face it: if you can’t dead lift more than you can curl, then you either have bigger arms than the incredible hulk or some pretty serious back problems.

To Perform This Exercise:

  1. Squat down and grasp a barbell or EZ Curl Bar with a shoulder width or slightly narrower underhand grip (palms facing up).
  2. Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, your knees slightly bent, and your back straight, draw your abs in and the lift bar by extending hips and knees to full extension.
  3. Curl the bar by bending at the elbows bringing your wrists to your shoulders and keeping your elbows in a locked position.
  4. Extend your arms and return the bar to the standing position at your thighs.
  5. Return to the starting position by bending at the waist and bringing the bar back down to just above the floor.


  1. Perform this exercise in front of a mirror at first so that you can monitor and correct your form.
