When performing a biceps curl, if your elbows wing out or you swing your arms or lean forward, the weights are too heavy. You are using momentum and other muscles to assist during the lift, not the biceps. To effectively work the biceps, proper form is essential. Lower the weights and apply the following principles. The upper arms and elbows should stay pinned to your sides. The head and chest should stay upright with no leaning forward. Tighten your abs to assist in staying erect and to support your spine. Once you can master these techniques with a lower weight, only then increase the load. Applying these skills will isolate the biceps muscle and give you greater results.
