Single-Arm and Cross Body
The beauty of dumbbell workouts is there’s no way for one arm to completely overcompensate for the other. Unlike the barbell, if one of your arms is much stronger than the other, you’re going to learn real quickly. One benefit that becomes the most obvious when you begin dumbbell training with your biceps is the range of motion. Single arm dumbbell preacher curls and concentration curls, these are both exercises that allow you to lower a little further or curl a little higher. A few of our favorite techniques that are available for dumbbells that you can’t do on barbells are cross-body curls and alternating curls. The combination of greater range of motion and additional isolation makes dumbbell bicep exercises a staple in any arms workout.
