The strength curve of a dumbbell curl maxes out in the middle of the exercise but loses tension at the top – right when you want it the most – when the biceps is in peak contraction.

Combine the two and you get the best of both worlds.
An exercise capable of delivering better gains by overlapping strength curves and putting the science back in strength.
