Ball Band French Curl

Show Video Show All Exercises
  Primary Muscle Group: Back of upper arms

Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise: Triceps brachii (lateral and long heads) and that seldom heard of muscle, Anconeus

Preparation: Sit on the ball with your feet flat on the floor. Place the band under both feet and grasp an end in each hand.

Breathing: Inhale as you bend your elbow, and exhale as you return to start position.

Execution: Extend your arms overhead with palms facing each other. Remember to keep those abs engaged to reap the full benefits. Bend your elbows and lower your hands behind your head and inhale. Exhale when you raise your hands back to starting position.

Comments: The overhead work in this exercise targets the entire length of your tricep muscles. This also forces your core muscles to engage giving you the added benefit of tight and toned abs.
