Preacher Curl Exercise

Preacher Bench Barbell Curl

Preacher curls is an isolation exercise. It can be performed using a barbell, an e-z bar, or with dumbbells. Because it is an isolation exercise with very strict movement, you will not be able to use as much weight compared to standing barbell curls.

Preacher Curl Technique & Execution

  • Position yourself on a preacher bench with your chest braced against the preacher bench
  • Extend your arms over the bench, holding a barbell
  • Curl the weight all the way up and then lower it back down to full extension
  • Give a good contraction at the peak of the movement

For variation, try performing preacher bench curls using a reverse grip. See reverse barbell curls.

Biceps Exercise - Preacher Dumbbell Curl

This is an isolation exercise with very strict movement. Depending on the equipement available at your gym, you can do this either on a seated or a standing preacher bench. With this isolation exercise, the movement is very strict, and there is no room to cheat, so use a slightly lighter weight, and perform the reps with proper form.

Preacher Dumbbell Curl Technique & Execution

  • Position your chest against the preacher bench - either standing or seated depending on the preacher bench you're using
  • Grasp a dumbbell with one arm extending over the preacher bench
  • Keeping your body steady, curl the dumbbell all the way up, and then lower back to starting position

An alternative to doing preacher curls and preacher dumbbell curls is to put the preacher bench by a cable machine. You can then perform these same exercises using the cable machine instead.
