What Exercise Accomplishes: Cheat curls develop extra mass and increase power in the biceps.

Implementation: Stand and hold the bar just like Barbell Curls, but use enough weight so that it becomes hard to do more than a few strict reps. Then, begin to swing the weight up, using your back and shoulders to help your arms. The trick is to keep your biceps working as hard as they can, and cheat just enough to keep the set going. Keep the elbows stationary at the waist. A great thing to do is to use both Barbell Curls and Cheat Curls in the same workout, doing a normal set of Curls and, when your arms are too tired to do any more strict repetitions, loading on extra weight and doing some Cheat Curls to really bombard your guns.
