Cable Curl

Instructions

Preparation

Grasp low pulley cable bar with shoulder width underhand grip. Stand close to pulley.

Execution

With elbows to side, raise bar until forearms are vertical. Lower until arms are fully extended. Repeat.

Comments

When elbows are fully flexed, they can travel forward slightly, allowing forearms to be no more than vertical. This additional movement allows for relative release of tension in muscles between repetitions.
