Bicep Curls with Band

Resistance Bands


Bicep curls strengthen your biceps, making it easier to lift things during your everyday activities.

Set up

Start standing with your feet hip width apart with a light resistance band under both feet. If your band is long enough, you can hold either end of the band with each hand while the middle of the band is under your feet. If your band is not that long, you can stand on the end of the band and hold the other end with one hand.

You may perform this exercise sitting on a chair instead if you prefer.


Stand tall with your back straight and your lower abdominals engaged.

Bend your elbows and slowly raise your hands to your shoulders. Lower your arms all the way back down, staying slow and controlled the entire time.


  • Remember to keep your elbows in and fixed by your sides. Don’t let your arms flare out or move forward as you do this exercise.
  • Your shoulders should also stay still and shouldn’t be moving up or down.
  • If you want to make this harder, you can hold the band tighter or use a band with more resistance.
