Instructions: How To

Similar to other curls, this isolation exercise targets the biceps. By using a cable machine, you have more control over the direction your resistance is coming from, as well as preventing you from compensating for any strength discrepancies between sides. The unique position of your arms can make this a great exercise for adding some variety to your curls.

  1. Position the double cable anchors at shoulder height.
  2. Stand upright between the anchors and grab ahold of the handles with your palms facing up.
  3. Engage your biceps to flex your arms in an arc towards your head.
  4. Slowly return to the starting position.
