Seated Dumbbell Curls Tips :

With this exercise you will achieve an even higher degree of contraction.

You can cheat a little also while performing this exercise to help yourself with your body, but please keep it to a minimum level.

Lift the weights as high as you can and then give an extra flex of the biceps to achieve maximum contraction. Slowly Lower the dumbbells down through the same arc, always try resisting the weight all the way down to the starting position, until your arms are fully extended, the biceps stretched as far as possible.

You can also perform this exercise in standing position, so you can lift a bit more extra weight and the movement will be not so strict and you can also cheat a little.
