Curls Aren’t Just for Girls
Maybe you’ve heard the term “curls are for girls” at the gym. Maybe you’ve never been to the gym but you have a buddy who drinks protein shakes like water and he says it all the time. Whatever you’ve heard, put it out of your head.
Curls are an effective exercise to build your biceps that you can do almost anywhere with a variety of pieces of equipment. For most guys, a set of free weights is affordable enough that they can even do curls in their man cave while they watch UFC fights – or whatever makes you feel many.
When you’re doing curls, proper form is important if you don’t want to end up tearing something that you really would rather not tear. Once you get your form right, you’re looking at doing sets of eight to 12 and repeating that two to three times per arm.
If you’re a badass, you can work both arms at the same time. But until you’re a badass – which is probably going to be a while – you might be better off focusing on form and working one bicep at a time.
Sure, you’ll need an extra five minutes to work out, but that’s really not a big deal, is it?
