Front Plane Lunge with Biceps Uppercut Curls

by Anthony Carey, MA


The frontal plane lunge where we add the uppercut bicep curl is a great exercise to incorporate the trunk musculature and the momentum of the body as it moves in the frontal plane. Step to one side and with the opposite arm, do a bicep curl coming across your body, creating a little bit of rotation in the torso as you come all the way across each time with the curl. If we wanted to regress this exercise, take out the lunge, but still have a bit of a weight shift with the opposite leg as you do the curl. So here you shift into your right leg and then into your left leg, still getting that bicep across the body each time.
