Benefits of Eccentric Training for Biceps

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:

  • stronger muscles

  • 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”
