Bicep Curl

The TRX Bicep Curl is a classic that should be a part of any arm workout.

Reverse Bicep Curl

You’ll feel this exercise in both your biceps and your forearms. Though the stance and angles for the TRX Reverse Bicep Curl are very similar to the TRX Bicep Curl, the grip is different.

Single Arm Bicep Curl

Half the arms, double the intensity!

Tip: Stagger your feet to provide more stability throughout the movement, and keep your hand anchored on your hip to assist in preventing rotation through the movement.

Bicep Clutch Curl

In addition to your biceps, the TRX Bicep Clutch Curl also targets your forearms and postural muscles. Unlike most bicep moves, which require you to separate your hands, you’ll need to keep your knuckles connected during the bicep clutch curl. (Think of it as a continuous fist-bump throughout your movement.)

Crossing Clutch Curl

This move looks and feels like a giant hug—a really challenging hug.

With any of these bicep moves, you can increase the difficulty by walking your feet toward the anchor point, or bringing your feet closer together. You can also try an inverted variation. For the inversion, start with your chest under the anchor point, your arms extended above your body, your feet flat and your knees bent to 90 degrees (Tip: you’ll have to squeeze your glutes to keep your knees at the correct angle.)

You don’t need dumbbells or bands to develop strong biceps; all you need is a TRX Suspension Trainer. With these five TRX bicep exercises, you’ll be well on your way to stronger, toned arms.
