The resistance band bicep curls is more effective in building bigger biceps than the basic version because it adds resistance and provides more tension after each rep. The more you stretch the resistance band, the harder it becomes to curl. It is an excellent muscle-building and strength-gaining exercise for those who find curling with free weights difficult.

How to do Resistance Band Bicep Curl

Set up for the exercise by using a resistance band with a pair of handles attached to its ends. Start by standing upright on the band with a hip-width stance, holding both the handles with an underhand grip. Gradually pull the handles towards your shoulders by moving only the forearms and squeezing your biceps. Pause for one or two seconds when you reach the top of the motion. Slowly bring the handles to the initial position.
