Hammer Curls are one of the most straightforward, but often overlooked biceps exercises. They are effective at working through your Biceps and Forearms, making it a double whammy exercise.

Follow through our video below where I will show you the exercise and outlines the perfect technique points.

You can also check out the step-by-step technique points further down this page, if you want a take away afterwards to remind you during your training.

Step-by-step exercise technique

    • Stand shoulder width apart with your knees soft and core tight.
    • Hold the dumbbells or kettle-bells loosely at your sides.
    • Alternating arms, curl the weight up across your body, keeping your hand in the same position (do not supinate your hand). Squeeze your biceps at the top.
    • Lower the weight slowly and controlled back to the start position.
      Top tip: Flex your Triceps at the bottom of the movement to increase the tension of each contraction.
    • Complete on each arm for the prescribed number of reps.
