Cable Preacher Curl

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on preacher bench placing back of arms on pad. Grasp cable bar with shoulder width underhand grip.

Execution

Raise cable bar toward shoulders. Lower cable bar until arms are fully extended. Repeat.

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. At bottom position, weight stack in use should not make contact with remaining weight stack. Also see movement on a horizontal pad.
