THE REVERSE GRIP CABLE CURL
If you are looking to add some variety to your arm workouts, give this unique reverse grip cable curl variation a try. This move will target the forearms and the brachialis muscles. Which in turn will help add some nice lines to your arm development.
All you have to do is place a flat bench in front of the low cable pulley stack. And attach an EZ curl bar to the cable.
Kneel down to the bench and rest your elbows on the pad just like you would if doing a set of preacher curls. Grip the EZ bar with a palms down reverse grip. And curl the bar up towards your face.
This move is really strict and will isolate the muscles because you can't use any body momentum to cheat and assist the weight up. And because we're using cables there is constant tension throughout the entire range of motion. You don't get a little rest at the top like you do when doing free weight barbell curls.
Give this move a try for yourself. Start off doing 3 sets of 10-12 reps and really squeeze the muscles hard at the top of the lift for a good peak contraction.
