Incline Cable Curl Overview

The Incline Cable Curl targets the biceps by using a cable machine, allowing for constant tension throughout the movement, and is performed on an incline bench to maximize muscle engagement.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Incline Bench, Cable Machine, Straight Bar or EZ-Curl Bar

How To Perform the Incline Cable Curl

  1. Set an incline bench to a 45-degree angle and place it in front of a low pulley cable machine.
  2. Attach a straight bar or EZ-curl bar to the low pulley.
  3. Sit on the bench with your back against the incline, feet flat on the floor, and grasp the bar with an underhand grip, palms facing up.
  4. Start with your arms fully extended and the bar in front of your thighs.
  5. Curl the bar towards your shoulders by flexing your elbows, keeping your upper arms stationary and your back pressed against the bench.
  6. Squeeze your biceps at the top of the movement for a second.
  7. Slowly lower the bar back to the starting position, fully extending your arms.
  8. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
