Partner Resisted Biceps Curl

A therapist or partner provides resistance while the athlete performs the bicep curl. This is a good early stage rehabilitation exercise


Teaching Points:

  • The athlete lies on their back with the upper arm supported on the couch/floor and elbow straight
  • The therapist provides resistance at the wrist at the athlete tries to bend the elbow.
  • This can be performed as an isometric exercise (with no movement) or resisted - with the elbow moving through its full range.
