Barbell Curl

The barbell curl is an arm exercise that is also one of the most recognizable movements in all of bodybuilding and fitness. It helps build sleeve-popping biceps and allows heavier loading than many other curl variations. It is usually performed in moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set, as part of the arm-focused portion of any workout.
