We all know how critical using various angles is to gaining mass and strength for major body parts like legs and back, but too many people fail to extend such importance to the smaller muscle groups. Your biceps grow and respond best when you train them with various exercises from a myriad of angles.
As a starting point, manipulating the position of your elbow and/or wrist, you can preferentially recruit different muscles in your upper arm. The Preacher Curl works the muscles of your front upper arm, the biceps. The word biceps refers to two intersecting muscle heads: the short head and the long head.
The Preacher Curl, as any other exercise where the elbow is in front of the midline of your body, puts greater emphasis on the short head of the biceps.
"When done properly, the Preacher Curl is a great arm building exercise"
The key to doing the preacher curl properly is to focus on form first and the amount of weight second. Here’s how to do the preacher curl correctly:
Wide Grip Preacher Curl: Wide grip preacher curls work the inside head of the biceps more. You can use the outer “curve” of the EZ curl bar to perform these.
Close Grip Preacher Curl: This is the default grip for the EZ bar preacher curl. A close grip works the outer head of the biceps more.
Straight Barbell Preacher Curl: This uses the same technique as the regular preacher curl except it replaces the EZ curl bar with a straight barbell. Some people claim the straight barbell is better for developing a peak. The difference between the two exercises isn't massive, but it’s always good to mix things up.
Dumbbell Preacher Curl: The dumbbell preacher curl works each arm individually. The motion is the same as with regular preacher curls except it is done with one hand at a time using dumbbells.
Hammer Dumbbell Preacher Curl: Same as above except the wrist is rotated so that the knuckles face outwards and the pinky is the closest finger to the floor.
