Comments

Seat should be adjusted to allow arm pit to rest near top of pad. Back of upper arm should remaining on pad throughout movement. The long head (lateral head) of biceps brachii is activated significantly more than short head (medial head) of biceps brachii since short head enters into active insufficiency as it continues to contract.
