Exercise Description and Instruction:

This version of the bicep curl uses a cable instead of a barbell to isolate your biceps.

To Perform This Exercise:

  1. Attach a short bar to a cable pulley to the bottom of the weight stack.
  2. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, your knees slightly bent and your abs drawn in.
  3. Grasp the bar with a close underhand grip (palms facing up).
  4. Lower your arms fully to above your thighs and bending only your elbows, raise the bar to your upper chest.
  5. Pause for a moment and then return to the starting position.


  1. Keep your elbows in the same position throughout the exercise. They should be drawn in to your torso, shoulder width apart.
  2. Keep your knees slightly bent to help prevent swinging your torso and “cheating.”
