Biceps Curl (Cable Concentration)


Target MusclesBiceps brachii, Brachialis, Brachioradialis
Starting Position:
1. Bend over or kneel beside a cable tower.
2. Using the cable grip from the lowest position place your elbow on the inside of your knee.
3. Your arm should be full extended and your palm should be facing the  opposite thigh.
The Movement:
1. Slowly curl the cable grip up in a smooth arc towards your shoulder.
2. Squeeze your biceps hard at the top of the movement, hold for a count  of two and then slowly lower the grip back to the starting  position.
Tips:
• Make sure you curl the cable grip to your shoulder and do not move  your shoulder to the dumbbell. Keep your shoulder relaxed.
• Do not lean backwards.
• Keep your upper arm fixed.
• Make sure you fully straighten your arm when you lower the cable grip; do not shorten the downwards phase.
