Incline Cable Bicep Curl Instructions

  1. Set up for the exercise by setting an incline bench to a 30-degree incline and placing it in the center of a cable machine that has two low pulley cable attachments.
  2. Attach a single handle to both the low pulley cables and select the weight you want to use on the stacks.
  3. Grasp both the handles with an underhand grip and lay back on the incline bench.
  4. Keeping your elbows fixed in position, slowly curl the handles up towards your body.
  5. Pause and squeeze the biceps, and then slowly lower the weight back down.
  6. Repeat for desired reps.

Incline Cable Bicep Curl Tips

  • Keep your elbows fixed throughout the set - do not move them at all.
  • Focus on only allowing your forearms to move.
