This exercise is credited to the late Vince Gironda, the “Iron Guru”. It not only blasts the biceps and works the forearms as well.
- Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, your knees slightly bent, and your abs drawn in.
- Grasp the bar with palms down, shoulder width apart.
- Extend your arms fully so they are against your thighs.
- Slowly raise your arms, palms down, to touch your chest.
Note: Do not move your elbows or shoulders during this exercise.
