If you attended events like the Arnold or the Olympia, Or perhaps you have seen a few guys or gals attempting the “Strict Curl” on YouTube or something. you may have witnessed impressive displays of strength from both men and women executing the Strict Curl.

The popularity of this lift can be attributed to C.T Fletcher, also known as The GodFather of Strict Curl, who first made it famous over three decades ago.Although the Strict Curl had lost popularity for some time, it regained momentum in 2008 when the "100% Raw" powerlifting federation reintroduced the event.

This lift is no ordinary exercise, as it requires participants to demonstrate their arm strength, grip, and core stability.Those who participate in the Strict Curl must maintain a strict posture against a wall or a platform while lifting the maximum weight possible, without relying on momentum for any swaying motion.

This is achieved through a combination of a robust grip, strong arms, back, legs, and core, all working together to keep their forearms tightened. The Strict Curl serves as a testament to the incredible strength and skill of powerlifters who continue to push the boundaries of what the human body can achieve.
