Reverse One Arm Cable Curl Instructions

  1. Set up for the one arm reverse cable curl by attaching a single grip handle to the low pulley cable.
  2. Stand facing the cable machine and grasp the handle with your left hand using an overhand (palms facing down) grip.
  3. Keeping your body fixed and your elbow tucked in at your sides, slowly curl the weight up as far as possible.
  4. Pause, and then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  5. Repeat for desired reps, and then repeat on your right arm.

Exercise Tips:

  1. As a general rule, always work your weakest side first. In most cases this will mean the left side.
  2. Keep your elbow tucked in at your side throughout the set. Only move your forearm.
  3. Keep the rep timing slow and control the weight, especially on the way down.
