Standing concentration curl

The standing concentration curl is a variation on the more common seated concentration curl, which is a staple of bodybuilding arm routines. It can serve as a substitute for preacher curl variations if a preacher bench is unavailable and is also a classic way to focus in on the biceps peak. It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-10 reps per set, with a focus on strict form and controlled tempo.
