Cross Body Hammer Curl

The cross-body hammer curl is performed with dumbbells but without wrist supination as the weights cross the torso. Throughout each rep, the wrists remain neutral, like a carpenter hammering a nail.


  1. Works not only the biceps but also the brachialis and brachioradialis
  2. Less stress on the wrists compared with supinating curls
  3. Places more emphasis on biceps long head than the standard hammer curl does
