    Hammer curls

    Please excusse my ignorance, but could someone explain to me what hammer curls are? I am an American and I live in Russia. I have a good grip on the language, but am not totally fluent. The fitness center I work out at is very modern, but I do not have a lot of convo. with the trainers due to language. I heavily rely on the net for advice.

    Thanks

    Hold the dumb bell in a position that makes your arm with the weight look like a hammer and do a curl.

    I am sure someone will post a pick.
    Still losing fat and gaining muscle. Man, feels like it takes for ever to get lean again and the strength doesn't come back over night.

    yeah... instead of holding dumbell with your palms facing the sky, make your palms face each other. then just do the curl motion.

    Wow could that guy in the video possibly cheat more???
    But when you disarm them, you at once offend them by showing that you distrust them, either for cowardice or for want of loyalty, and either of these opinions breeds hatred against you.

    Thanx. The guy in the video isn't cheating half as bad as the people at the gym where i work out ( trainers included ) They load the bar to the max, scream when they lift the weight, jerk their bodies all around and use sheer momentum to accomplish the lift. Then they poke out thier chest and strut around the gym like they are Mr. Olympia.

    gez you didnt by change go to the University of Vermont with me. of course only about 4 guys besides me could tip the scale over 220 that weren't 40% BF.
    average weight was about 150 for the guys, little bit more of the "ladies"
