Dumbbell Curl Incline Dumbbell Curl Dumbbell Preacher Curl
They selected 22 male weight-trained subjects (doing resistance training for at least a year). These men were made to perform three different types of curls. Electrodes were attached to their biceps to measure how hard the biceps worked with each exercise. The Incline Dumbbell Curl and the classical Dumbbell Biceps Curl resulted in similar patterns of biceps brachii activation for the whole range of motion, whereas Dumbbell Preacher Curl elicited high muscle activation only for a short range of elbow joint angle. The researchers concluded that the The Incline Dumbbell Curl and the Dumbbell Biceps Curl resulted in a considerable neuromuscular effort throughout the whole elbow range of motion. The Incline Dumbbell Curl and the Dumbbell Biceps Curl may be preferable for the improvement of biceps brachii force in training programs.
So what the researchers found was that the dumbbell curl and incline dumbbell curl are superior exercises for activating the entire bicep whereas the dumbbell preacher curl activated the bicep for a short range of motion. Be sure to make dumbbell and incline dumbbell curls a core part of your bicep training routine for the best arm growth.
