Cross Body Hammer Curl
Similar to the regular CrossToner bicep hammer curl, this variation involves turning the CrossToner across your body so that you’re pulling the long handle from in front of the opposite shoulder and thus across your body, instead of pulling it from straight out in front of you. This targets the biceps long head from a different angle.
Similar to the regular CrossToner bicep curl, this seated variation requires you to hold your right elbow on your right thigh, near your knee, during the curl motion. Make sure to keep the elbow from moving. This focuses the maximum amount of resistance on the bicep muscle.
Free Air Bicep Curl
Similar to the regular CrossToner bicep curl, this variation requires you to hold the inside long handle away from the body several inches so there is no core support, for a few reps. This simultaneously creates a very intense isometric tricep and shoulder workout for the opposite arm. It may not be possible to hold this position with the opposite arm for all of the reps, though. This is INTENSE!
Same as standard CrossToner bicep curl except alternate arms every one or two reps.

Named after George Zottman, our take on this curl variation adds enhanced forearm tension to the curl maneuver on the way back down. The motion is very close to the hammer curl, except you rotate your wrist outward at the top (halfway point) of the exercise, and keep it rotated as you release. Once you’re back to the starting point, simply rotate the wrist back, and repeat.
Two Handed Curl
Similar to the regular CrossToner bicep curl, this variation requires you to hold the outside long handle with both hands, while resting the inside long handle against your chest.
