Reverse Plate Curls are an effective exercise for building strength in your biceps. It is performed by standing straight with a weighted plate held by both hands and arms fully extended. To ensure the best results, the plate should be held at an 11:00 and 1:00 o'clock position. The feet should be shoulder width apart and the plate near the groin area. To perform the exercise, lift the plate up while keeping the elbows in and the upper arms stationary until your biceps and forearms touch, then slowly lower the weight back down. Reverse Plate Curls are a great way to target your biceps and build strength.
To incorporate Reverse Plate Curls into your workouts, you can follow these steps:

3. Starting position: Keep your elbows in and your upper arms stationary. The weighted plate should be near your groin area.
