Cable Hammer Curl

Instructions

Preparation

Grasp cable rope with palms facing inward. Stand upright with arms straight down to sides

Execution

With elbows to side, raise rope forward and upward with both arms until forearms are vertical. Lower until arms are fully extended. Repeat.

Comments

When elbows are fully flexed, they can travel forward slightly, allowing forearms to be no more than vertical. This additional movement allows for relative release of tension in muscles between repetitions.
