Hammer Curl, Standing, Alternating

Type: Arms
The standing alternating hammer curl is an effective exercise for strengthening the biceps and forearms and are performed by contracting the biceps and lifting the dumbbells upwards with a neutral grip. Performing the exercise whilst standing places more emphasis on the core as core strength and stability is vital for developing good technique. Alternating the movement also encourages good technique and increases the time under tension. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describe the correct technique for the standing alternating hammer curl exercise.
