The cable biceps curl builds strength in the biceps and forearms. Using the cable ensures that resistance remains on the biceps throughout the entire range of motion.
Step by step instructions
Clip a rope attachment to the lowest level on an adjustable cable machine. Grab the bar with an underhand grip, your arms fully extended and your palms facing forward.
Without moving your upper arms, bend your elbows and curl the bar as close to your shoulders as you can. Pause, then lower the bar to the starting position.
Mistakes and Tips
- Keep elbows tucked into sides.
- Do not swing the weight.
