This exercise looks a little different but it is a great variation from the typical bicep curl. Lifting the arms changes the “Strength Curve” of the lift and adds stress to the lower portion of the biceps. As usual, multiple angles is usually a very good thing when it comes to building some calorie burning muscle.
One challenge with this exercise is that it can be a little awkward to add weight, lean back and counter balance the weight. I certainly do not want to strain my back so a good solid core is important. It is also really important to not lose focus and hit yourself in the face with the bar. That would be unfortunate.
Form & Safety
As always form and safety is extremely important. Injury is always possible. I have been doing movements like this for 26 years and adding weight is natural for me. Use caution and consult professionals. But keep in mind rule 2! Intensity is one of the rules I have lived by for over 26 years.

I have kept lean and athletic for over 26 years by creating a demand for calories and eating sensibly. Working muscle, growing muscle and sustaining muscle all take calories! With a sensible diet, the extra calorie demand allows me to burn off calories that might otherwise be stored as fat.
