This version of the biceps curl uses a cable instead of a barbell to work the muscles of the arms.

Muscle group: Biceps


Attach a short bar to a cable pulley to the bottom of the weight stack.

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, your knees slightly bent and your abs drawn in.

Grasp the bar with a close underhand grip (palms facing up).

Lower your arms fully to above your thighs and bending only your elbows, raise the bar to your upper chest.

Pause for a moment and then return to the starting position.


Do not swing your hips or back during this exercise.
