PURPOSE OF EXERCISE: To develop extra
mass and power in the biceps.
EXECUTION: Stand and hold the bar as
for Barbell Curls, but use enough weight
so that it becomes difficult to do more
than just a few strict repetitions. At this
point, you begin to swing the weight up,
using your back and shoulders to help
your arms. The trick is to keep your
biceps working as hard as they can, and
cheat only enough to keep the set going.
Keep the elbows stationary at the waist.
I like to combine Barbell Curls and
Cheat Curls, doing a normal set of Curls
and, when my arms are too tired to do
any more strict repetitions, loading on
extra weight and doing some Cheat Curls
to really blast the biceps.
