Reverse Drag Curls

Postby koolsome » June 3rd, 2012, 6:58 am


I don't think I am doing it right. I am not hitting the right muscle. The book says that it should be linear motion grazing the front of the body, while I am still doing it in a slightly circular in fashion

I checked out a couple of youtube videos, but they looked wrong. The book just has pictures.

A link to a video showing it correctly would be very helpful

Thanks much

This is a good video of a normal drag curl, just flip your hands around to do it as a reverse drag curl.

The key is to keep you elbows back, chest big, and keep tension/squeeze your biceps in both the concentric and eccentric motion.

I can't get to increase my weights on drag curl after 6 weeks... i started with olympic bar; then +2.5(total), then extra 1.25 (total).. I do this after Workout A and B each with 4 days of rest in between.

Any ideas?

There are a few things you can do.

1. Work the weak part of your range of motion by doing 1 and 1/2 reps where you are weak
2. Use less time under tension.
3. Deload see http://stronglifts.com/what-to-do-after ... lifts-5x5/ and search for deload.
4. Change your rest period. Maybe shorter or longer
5. Workout at a different time of the day
6. Change your pre workout meal or try working out fasted

I wouldn't try all of them at once, just 1 or 2 that you think you can do and you think will help.
