Cable Curl Instructions

  1. Set up for the cable curl by attaching a straight bar to the low pulley cable and selecting the weight you want to use on the stack.
  2. Stand facing the cable machine with your legs shoulder width apart.
  3. Grasp the bar with an underhand grip (palms facing up), and your hands about shoulder width apart.
  4. Keeping your elbows tucked in by your sides, slowly curl the bar up as far as possible.
  5. Squeeze the biceps at the top of the movement, and then slowly lower it back to starting position.
  6. Do not pause, but go straight into the next rep!

​Cable Curl Tips:

  1. Keep your elbows tucked in by your sides and don't allow them to come forward as you curl the weight up.
  2. Don't "rest" at the bottom of the movement. When you complete a rep move straight into the next rep!
  3. Keep the rep timing slow and control the weight as you lower it.
