Alternate dumbbell curls involve curling two dumbbells alternately with both arms while standing or sitting. This exercise primarily targets the bicep muscles but also engages the forearms and grip strength. To perform alternate dumbbell curls, start by standing or sitting with a dumbbell in each hand, arms extended by your sides, palms facing inward. Keep your elbows close to your torso and slowly curl one dumbbell upwards, while exhaling, until it reaches shoulder level. Hold for a few seconds and then slowly lower the dumbbell back down to starting position while inhaling. Alternate the arm curling and repeat for desired number of sets and reps, keeping your back straight and core engaged throughout the motion. Alternate dumbbell curls can be done with different variations such as hammer curls, concentration curls, or preacher curls to add variety and target slightly different parts of the biceps.
