Lever Alternating Curl

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on seat and grasp handles with underhand grip.

Execution

Raise lever on handle until elbow is fully flexed with back of upper arm remaining on pad. Lower handle until arm is fully extended. Repeat with opposite arm. Continue to alternate movement between sides.

Comments

The biceps may be exercised simultaneous. If machine does not provide support for back of arm, keep elbows from traveling back, particularly during initial flexion. Some machines do not offer adequate resistance at initial range of motion. Consider positioning wrists with slight flexion to compensate.
