  1. Stand with your feet hip-width maintaining good posture, arms at your sides, and palms facing the ceiling in a supinated wrist position. Elevate both arms approximately 60-degrees in the air and hold the position.

  2. Tighten your biceps to curl the weights toward your shoulders. Pause, holding the up-position briefly, and slowly extend your arms until both elbows are fully straight.

  3. Be sure to keep your arms lifted in the air, not allowing your elbows to fall toward the ground as you perform the curl motion. Engage your abs to stabilize your spine.
