Unique Bicep Exercise For Building Bicep Peak

This is a unique bicep exercise that is great for finishing off a bicep workout and getting a good peak contraction throughout the biceps. You set it up by attaching a single handle to the low pulley cable row machine. Sit far ahead on the bench, bend your knees at 90 degree angles, and brace your elbow on the inside of your knee. Perform concentration curls with one arm at a time, similar to how you would if using dumbbells. But because the exercise uses a cable instead you'll get constant tension on the muscles at all times through the full range of motion.

  3. Do you use the same amount of weight that you do in a dumbbell curl if not do you go lighter or heavier?

  6. Very good technique! Cables are great in keeping the resistance through the entire range of motion. Nice blog, Lee!

  7. The weight used for this exercise will vary depending on the machine. You can't always compare the weight on machine exercises with free weights. Just adjust the weight to what ever rep range you want to work in.
