Eccentric training focuses specifically on the lowering movement.
And we slow the lowering time waaaaaaaaaaayyyy down
This increases the biceps time under tension and promotes muscle growth in that area.
Most people can do this type of exercise with greater resistance. The key to eccentric bicep curls is in going heavier in your weights. This will cause your muscles to generate more force and build greater strength.
Benefits of Eccentric Bicep Curls Include:
faster muscle repair
increasing metabolic rate
triggers protein synthesis and muscle growth
stretches and strengthens the tendons and connective tissue
lengthens the biceps
promotes type II muscle fibers
We love the slow eccentric bicep curl found in this weeks TOTW “Big”
