Lever Curl

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on seat and grasp handles with underhand grip.

Execution

Raise lever handles until elbows are fully flexed with back of upper arm remaining on pad. Lower handles until arm is fully extended. Repeat.

Comments

The biceps may be exercised alternating or 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.
