This is another favorite exercise because it’s easy to perform anywhere with anything. You can lift traditional weights at the gym or bottles of water on your way home from the store. It’s important to do arm curls though because they will strengthen the muscles you need when you have to lift pretty much everything. Hold the weight at your sides, tuck elbows in and bend them as you lift the weight towards your chest.
