Exercise Description and Instruction:

This Bicep Exercise is one of our cable exercises and utilizes a Preacher Curl Bench to Isolate your Biceps.

To Perform This Exercise:

  1. Place a preacher curl bench in front of a cable machine.
  2. Attach a short bar to the bottom pulley.
  3. Rest your arms against the bench and extend them fully.
  4. With a narrow grip (6 inches) grasp the bar underhand (palms facing up) and pull it towards your head.
  5. Pause for a moment and then lower the bar back to starting position.


Most gym preacher curl benches are fastened to the ground, making this bicep exercise difficult to do. However, if you can drag your preacher curl bench near the cable, it’s a great exercise to try.
