Reverse Biceps Curls With Resistance Bands

Exercise / Biceps


Reverse biceps curls with resistance bands are a great exercise because they place an emphasis on the long head of the bicep. This is the muscle that typically gets neglected during other exercises. They also allow you to use more weight than you would be able to lift with just your body weight, which can help increase strength and size. If you are looking to really focus on one muscle group, this exercise is one of the best you can do.


How to perform the exercise


  • Anchor: Not required.
  • Bands: Attach a handle to each end of the band.

Body Position:

  • Stand hip-width apart on the band.
  • Take the handles in each hand and stand up straight.
  • Maintain a straight back, a straight head, a straight chest, and a tight stomach.
  • Begin with your arms straight down, close to your sides, and palms facing backwards.


  • Pull the handles up, bending your arms until your hands are at chest level.

Exercise Tips

  • Keep your elbows fixed at your sides and do not allow them to move forward or backward.
