Low Pulley Biceps Machine Curl

The low pulley cable machine will enable you to get a good workload when performing a bicep muscle curl. Unlike so much with freeweights, you may find that you get a sticking point where its hard to lift the weight and as such you should try and perform some lighter bicep curls to establish a good position to start from.

Place a single arm cable attachment securely onto a low pulley cable machine.

You may decide to stand facing the cable machine and perform this exercise in a similar manner as a two handed biceps cable curl, or alternatively by standing side on to the cable, you can lift and lower the weight, as if performing a cross body bicep curl.

Whichever stance you perform, focus on keeping your back straight, avoiding leaning over to the weighted side.

You may decide to place 1 arm on the machine to prevent youself from leaning forward (facing the cable) or grasping a secure object (side stance).

Alternatively placing your spare arm behind your back will help tell you when you're leaning forward.

Either method can be performed using a standard curl action - hammer action or even a reverse action.
