Cross body hammer curl, also called the cross chest hammer curl, is a muscle-strengthening exercise which targets your biceps. Gym trainees usually perform it in combination with other biceps and triceps workouts for an overall development of their forearms.
Cross Body Hammer Curl Benefits
The cross body hammer curl specifically targets the brachialis of your forearms, which helps in “pushing” your biceps and triceps apart thereby assisting in building thicker arms.
It is a shoulder flexion workout that reduces activation of your biceps muscle and therefore, can be used as a warm-up exercise.
It creates a balance between the lower and upper parts of your arms.
