Cable Curl (with stirrups)

Instructions

Preparation

Stand between or facing double low pulleys. Grasp stirrups to each side, palms facing forward.

Execution

Pull stirrups forward and upward toward shoulders while keeping elbows stationary. Return until arms are fully extended. Repeat.

Comments

When elbow is fully flexed, it can travel forward slightly, allowing forearm to be no more than vertical. This additional movement allows for relative release of tension in muscles between repetitions. Pulleys should not be too far apart.
