✳️Increase the isolation on your biceps w/ these Kneeling Straight Bar Cable Curls! If you aren’t using cables to train your arms read below on WHY they’re a good choice ⬇️
Cables allow a more fluid, and controlled movement - this movement will engage additional muscles for stability (mainly your core) since you will be pulling on the cable and your core will need to work harder to support the tension and angle of the movement. The cables allow you to get unique angles, and increased tension that you wouldn’t typically get from a dumbbell or a barbell. Keep your back straight, and keep elbows in a fixed position and tuck them into your sides to perform this movement properly and avoid injury.
Start out with performing 1-2 sets of 15-20 reps with a lower weight to get the movement down, and squeeze at the top for 1-2 seconds to get more blood into the muscle (thus tearing it more, and you getting a better pump and better gains once you recover). After your 2 warm-up sets, perform 4 sets of 8-10 reps each as your working sets with a 2/1/2 tempo ➡️ 2 seconds on the upward movement, 1 second hold, and 2 seconds returning down (do not fully extend, you should maintain a slight tension on the bicep).
