Hammer curls are great for sculpting the forearm muscles and they also works the biceps on the front of the arm (learn how well-developed biceps can reduce the appearance of jiggly arm flab by clicking here).
This exercise is very easy to perform. Simply stand or sit on an exercise ball while holding a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing in.
To complete the movement, curl the dumbbells towards your shoulders either simultaneously or alternately and then return to the starting position.
It’s important to keep your abdominal muscles engaged while performing this exercise.
You should also keep your elbows as close to your waist as possible during the movement (click here for more exercises that work the arms).
