Standing bicep curls, you want to get yourself into a nice solid position, feet slightly apart, bum slightly back and knees slightly bent. 

You can do standing bicep curls with your palm open as in this fashion, or you can do standing bicep curls with your palm sideways, so, it’s like almost in a sideways motion. Both are going to be equally good for the vicep. They are just going to challenge it in a slightly different way.  

Repetitions, generally speaking are anywhere between ten to twenty reps. I like to pick a weight I can be comfortable with. I like to pick a weight that I can do anywhere up to twenty reps and I could repeat that the next day or even the day after. 

But, whenever you think about doing any kind of weights from a standing position, you always want to really focus on getting your bum slightly back, you knees bent and have a nice steady motion with the arm.  

Really, stay away from that swinging of the body. That really doesn’t help you and it puts a lot of strain on your back.
