Cable Seated Curl

Cable Seated Curl


Utility: Basic or Auxiliary
Mechanics: Isolated
Force: Pull



Sit on seat situated between two low pulleys down to each side. Grasp stirrups in each hand, palms facing forward.


Pull both stirrups up toward shoulders while keeping elbows stationary. Return until arms are fully extended and repeat.


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. Pulleys should not be too far apart. Cables can be positioned under shoulders with ad hoc or customized set up. Also see Cable Alternating Seated Curl.
