* One of my co-workers pointed out that my form was way off on my curls and that I needed to keep my arms closer to my side to maximize the benefit I was getting AND prevent myself from getting injured.  Doing them properly has forced me to back off on the weight.

  1. Re: Asterisk – Ideally, your elbows will remain at your sides and ahead of your shoulders throughout the move, except at the very top of the squeeze, where pulling them up and away from your ribs also engages the biceps – if they’re pointing about 30-45 degrees ahead of you at the very top, that’s what you’re looking for.
