Cable Preacher Curl (stirrups)

Cable Preacher Curl (stirrups)


Utility: Auxiliary
Mechanics: Isolated
Force: Pull



Grasp cable stirrups with each hand. Sit on preacher bench placing back of arms on pad with palms up.


Raise both stirrups upward toward shoulders. Lower stirrups until arm is fully extended. Repeat.


Seat should be adjusted to allow arm pit to rest near top of pad. Back of upper arms should remain on pad throughout movement. The long head (lateral head) of biceps brachii is activated significantly more than short head (medial head) of biceps brachii since short head enters into active insufficiency as it continues to contract. At bottom position, weight stack in use should not make contact with remaining weight stack.
