E1 | Bicep curls - eccentric


For eccentric loading of the bicep tendon, muscle and for advanced forearm eccentric loading work for tennis elbow conditions and forearm or elbow tendon injuries. In this exercise, it is optimal to slowly control the band in its downwards phase


With one loop of the band under the foot and holding the other, assist the upward phase with the other arm so there is minimal load on the curl phase. Then take away the support hand and hold the arm in elbow flexion using the bicep contraction. Slowly lower the hand making sure the shoulder does not pop forward - keep the scapula back and down until full elbow extension or before pain.
