All Sections / This Is the Correct Way to Do a Bicep Curl

It doesn’t matter how hard you work out—if you’re doing the moves wrong, then you’ll never see results. (You might even end up accidentally hurting yourself.) Here, two common mistakes you might be making when you're doing a bicep curl, and what you should be doing instead.

Mistake 2: You’re curving your back and letting your shoulders droop.
Stand up straight and work those core muscles.
