How do I perform a seated hammer curl?

Wendy Batts
When performing a seated hammer curl you want to first choose a weight. Next, sit with your feet straight and flat on the floor with a dumbbell in each hand. Begin with your arms extended at the sides of your body and slowly curl each dumbbell up by bending your elbows and keeping your thumbs up. Be sure not shrug shoulders. Once your thumbs reach chest height, pause and then return back to starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
Sit with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed flat on the ground.  With your arms fully extended down your sides and holding a dumbbell in each hand, curl the dumbbell up towards your shoulders, leading with your thumbs which should be pointed up.  Be careful not to shrug your shoulders.  Reverse the movement as you return to the starting position.
