How to Cable Drag Curl

Starting Position

1. Avoid arching your back or using momentum to lift the weight.

2. Do not swing the weight or jerk it up.

3. Make sure to keep your elbows still and your torso stationary.

4. Stop the exercise if you feel any pain or discomfort.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your torso stationary and your elbows slightly bent, exhale and curl the handle up towards your shoulders.

2. Squeeze your biceps at the top of the movement and hold for a brief moment.

3. Slowly lower the handle back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you curl the handle towards your shoulders.

2. Inhale as you lower the handle back to the starting position.


1. Stand in front of a low cable pulley machine with an appropriate weight attached.

2. Grasp the handle with an underhand grip and stand tall with your chest up, shoulders back, and core engaged.

3. Your arms should be extended out in front of your body, with your elbows slightly bent.
