Drag curls dumbbells are a unique bicep curl variation in which you don’t bring the weight all the way to the front of your body. Thus, you have a harder time swinging and using momentum to lift the weight.

As for the long head of the bicep, it is most stressed due to the positioning of the elbow. Your elbows move back behind you, activating it to a very high level.

For this exercise, you can use a barbell, dumbbells, or an EZ bar, all for the same effect.
