Exercise Description and Instruction:

This version of the Bicep Curl throws in one of the best leg exercises, the lateral lunge.

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 programs.

To Perform This Exercise:

  1. Grasp a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing up.
  2. Stand with your feet together, your back straight and your abs drawn in and allow your arms to extend down fully in front of your thighs.
  3. While keeping your body straight, take a step sideways and then bend your waist and your knee into a lunge.
  4. As you go into the lunge curl your arms up towards your shoulders contracting your biceps.
  5. Return to starting position and switch legs.


  1. Keep your back straight, your shoulders back and your abs drawn in throughout the exercise.
  2. This exercise should be utilized as a fat burning exercise, rather than a muscle building exercise because you can only use as much weight for the dumbbell lunge as you would normally use for the bicep curl.
