Cable Bicep Curl: How to Perform It

Cable Bicep Curl: How to Perform It

The Cable Bicep Curl is a resistance training exercise for the upper-body, which focuses on developing strength targeting the anterior arm musculature (biceps).

Make sure you use appropriate weight so you can control the action throughout the entire range of motion. Otherwise you may only reap half the benefits.

Very often, people use too much resistance. They pull the weight towards the chest and then just release it on the way down.

No eccentric phase, the weights basically just drop to the floor. Make the most out of your training time and work your way up to weights that make you look respectable.

It may also be a good idea to work the triceps equally as hard as your bicep to avoid strength imbalances.

Apart from looking weird strength imbalances can also lead to injuries.
