Today's Fitness Friday features the Curl to Press.
About the Curl to Press
The curl to press exercise is a multi-joint, upper-body exercise that increases strength in the biceps, triceps, and shoulders.
Curl to Press encourages core strength to limit low back extension while strengthening the upper extremity.
- Begin holding two weights on either side of your body.
- Bend your elbows to bring the weight up to chest level (hammer curl).
- Push the weights up towards the ceiling to an overhead position.
- Slowly lower the weights to chest level, and allow your elbows to extend to return to the starting position.
