Dumbbell Concentration Curls (opposing shoulder)


Using your knee almost like a Scott Curl pad, and bringing the dumbbell to the opposing shoulder, predominantly hits the Biceps Brachii (Biceps head). Bringing the dumbbell to the same shoulder (Dumbbell Concentration Curls - Same Shoulder) hits both the Biceps Brachii and Brachilias.

Although Dumbbell Concentration Curls to the Opposite Shoulder is a popular gym exercise, it's far down my list of biceps exercises and it's not often I ask a client to perform this exercise.
