The split-stance offset pinky dumbbell curl is a more difficult variation of a standard dumbbell curl. The exercise helps improve bicep size and strength while the lower body stabilizes during the movement.
Step by step instructions
Grab a pair of dumbbells with palms facing outwards and pinkies resting against dumbbell head. Place one foot on top of a bench and fully extend arms down to your sides.
Brace core, exhale and quickly raise dumbbells to shoulders. Keep elbows tucked at sides. Pause, then slowly retract dumbbells back to starting position. Make sure to swap lifted leg after repetitions are completed.
Mistakes and Tips
Don't use momentum to move the dumbbells. Focus on controlling the movement.
Don't lose balance side-to-side. Keep your core tight and stay stable.
