Preacher curl

You should be using lighter weights for the preacher curl because the bench forces you into an unstable position. Preacher curl impacts your front-arm muscles, which help you build some serious size on your biceps.

This curl is not a lot different from the normal bicep curls, except that they focus on a specific style of curls. Preacher curls can be done on both the free weight rack and the weight stack.

How to do Preacher Curl?

  • Hold the dumbbell on the bench with zero space between your underarm area and the top bench.
  • Bend your elbows and curl the dumbbell toward your shoulder, without moving your upper arms.
  • Pause, squeezing your bicep at the top.
  • Slowly reverse the movement to return to start.
  • You can do 3 sets of 12 reps.

Preacher Curl Tip!

Preacher curls are a great way to keep you in a good form but are bound by the equipment needed to perform this exercise. Bicep curls can work just as well but it is necessary to keep a good form and avoid cheating while performing them.
