Jeremy @jayethierfit puts out some Top Notch Corrective Exercise information👌
He is definitely worth a follow👍
As a Corrective Exercise Specialist & #NASM Certified Personal Trainer myself, I couldn't describe this any better🙌
Tag a friend that could use a better bicep curl technique💪
Regrann from @jayethierfit - Tag someone who needs to make these fixes! How many of you were/are making some of the following mistakes🤔? I guarantee that if you implement the 3 following fixes in your next biceps workout, you’re going to notice a huge difference in the contraction your biceps get - leading to better biceps growth in the long run!
Mistake 1❗️: Moving the elbow forward as you curl. Although a little bit of elbow movement is normal and expected since the biceps also weakly assist in shoulder flexion, when it becomes excessive is when it starts to be detrimental. This let’s the front delts takeover the movement and steal tension from the biceps. Instead, keep the elbow locked at your side throughout each rep.
Mistake 2❗️: Curling the wrist during each rep (especially at the top). This is a very common mistake that goes unnoticed, yet is detrimental since moves a lot of the tension from the biceps to the forearms. Instead, keep your wrist neutral – or better yet keep them slightly extended (bent back) to really isolate the tension on the biceps.
Mistake 3❗️: Shrugging the traps during each rep. Another very common mistake that you probably don’t realize you’re doing! Don’t let the traps takeover your curl by keeping them depressed during each rep. If you struggle with this, it’s likely an indication that you need to lighten the weight.
Although this was the topic of one of my latest YouTube videos, I thought I’d repost it on Instagram for those who didn’t see and to remind you of the importance of implementing it! Choosing the right biceps exercises is one thing, but performing them correctly is what makes all the difference. Let me know what other muscle groups you think I should cover in this fashion 👍👌 - #regrann
Had to move my training around this week, I usually train back on a Monday but with staying up to watch the #mcgregorvsmayweather fight Saturday night I was too tired - you've got to listen to your body when you need rest!
