Why It’s Perfect for You

This particular hand position makes for amazing definition and roundedness in the front of the upper arm. The seated position lets you focus all energy on the movement.
Maintaining a neutral grip allows your muscle to develop in a narrow and rounded way, rather than creating thickness. Men like thick, full biceps and women tend to prefer rounded, thin biceps.
