Feel like your arms have hit a plateau? Sometimes you need to simply modify a familiar movement to keep growing. With 45 degree Bicep Curls, turning your arms out slightly to the side as you curl up hits the bicep in a slightly different way than traditional bicep curls and can lead to gains! Give this new move a try during your next arm workout…
Start the 45 degree Bicep Curls by standing with your feet shoulder width apart and your core engaged. Hold a dumbbell in each hand with the sides of the dumbbells about 1 inch from your hips.
Curl the dumbbells up using your biceps as the primary mover though a side ways motion at a 45 degree angle. Lower the weight back down to your sides to return to the starting position.
