Drag curl

The drag curl is a biceps exercise that attempts to remove the influence of the front deltoids on the classic curl. With the elbows kept back, the barbell "drags" up the torso. It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-15 reps per set, as part of an upper-body or arms-focused workout.


  1. Builds strength and size in biceps
  2. Cuts down on deltoid involvement in curl
  3. Great for targeting the biceps long head
