- Step 1: Stand & hold barbell Stand holding a barbell with your palms facing your thighs and both your hands and feet shoulder width apart.
- TIP: By keeping your hands wide, you focus more on your shoulders and less on your trapezius muscles, which connect to your neck.
- Step 2: Lift barbell straight up Without bending, smoothly lift the barbell straight up until it reaches chin height.
- Step 3: Lower barbell Slowly lower the barbell.
- TIP: To make this lift easier on your wrists, try using a cambered curl bar that's articulated to allow for a more natural grip.
- Step 4: Repeat Repeat until you can't maintain proper form—either your back starts to weaken or you can't raise the bar to chin height. When that happens, set the bar down.
- FACT: The triangular deltoid muscle gets its name from the Greek letter delta, which is a triangle.
