CABLE BICEP CURL FORM
One of the most common exercises in the gym. Bicep’s are one of the most commonly used muscles in the body. By training them in the gym, bicep curls add great definition to your arm.
First thing to remember when completing a cable bicep curl is to keep the elbow nicely fixed into the side of your body. If your elbow is not fixed but instead flexible and rotating then the concentration on the bicep is lost which is what is needed in this isolation exercise.
For a bicep curl, take a good solid stance with your chest facing up but soften your knees. By keeping the knees soft and not fixed, this avoids losing concentration on the bicep by forcing you to contract the bicep and not allow your body to help you.
Contract the bicep, keeping it nice and tight. Elbow should stay fixed in position, not rolling it too far forward or back. Complete the exercise slowly not rushing through the rep.
If you are using dumbbells to complete a bicep curl workout, make sure you focus on bringing your forearm to your bicep. Do not swing the dumbbells when curling them.
