Lie back completely so that your head is supported by the bench. • Keep your chest up, abdominals tight and maintain a slight arch in your lower back. Motion: • Curl handles forward, then upward and then in toward the shoulders while keeping your elbows at your sides and your upper arms completely still. • Slowly lower to the starting position by performing the same arcing motion. Key points: • Keep elbows from moving forward and backward. • Keep wrists straight. • Keep your trunk muscles tight and maintain a very slight arch in your lower back.
