Tabletop curl

A new pr after a year of working on the tabletop curl. What inspired me to practise this lift was an article in MILO, December 2001, about Virgil Arciero who did 14 rep of 175 lbs. He is not the official world record holder (as far as I know it is Al Turner who has done 217 lbs one time) but the article got me into tabletop curling.

What is difficult about this lift is keeping your wrists straight and not letting it buckle. Focus on keeping a 90 degree bend in your elbow and tip back with all your body weight. Voila - the dumbbell should lift up.
