Use TRX Zottman Curls for arm width PLUS strength

Use TRX Zottman Curls for arm width PLUS strength…

The palm down curls are greatly over shadowed by the standard palm up curls.

Often because of time or exercise priority (we all love to target the mirror flex biceps-brachii muscle first).

Lot’s of requests on TRX exercises for arms, this one mixes it up from the 100’s of curl variations.

(Key points below vid)

THREE KEY TECHNIQUE POINTS BELOW!

Palm down curls target the brachialis (sits deep behind the biceps).

Developing this pushes the bicep and tricep muscles away from each other, giving the arm thickness.

TRX Zottman Curls allow targeting of both muscles in one move, forcing extra blood ‘the pump’ into the arm area.

Great if you’re short on time or to finish an arm routine with.

EXTRA HARD SQUEEZE

At the top of the bicep curl squeeze the bicep super hard and slightly rotate your pinky upwards as do you (bicep peak) before rotating the wrists into the downward (eccentric) phase.

CONTRACT THE TRICEP

On the downward phase at the very bottom contract the tricep hard and then rotate the wrist to curl back up.

Contracting the tricep means the bicep will be fully lengthened when the curl is initiated.

(If you think this looses tension on the bicep? Refer to my post 2 back for an explanation)

SUPER SLOW DOWNARD (ECCENTRIC)

On the downward phase (palms down) use a very slow tempo 4-5 seconds.

On the upwards phase (concentric) use a 1 sec explode up with hard contraction.
