Primary Muscles Worked: Biceps Brachii
By using the EZ bar, the strain put onto your wrists is minimized and your upper arms can sit comfortably on the padding. To start, keep your back straight and eyes facing forward before taking the weight off the rack – it’s important to support the weight with arms slightly bent. Repeat for desired reps.
For alternative options, this exercise can be done with a dumbbell.
1. Adjust the seat on the preacher bench so that your upper arms sit comfortably on the padding. Load the desired weight on the barbell. Sit on the preacher bench and grip the EZ bar with your hands shoulder width apart using an underhand (palms facing up) grip. (note: You can use a wide or narrow grip on this exercise).
