Coach's Tips

It's a workout that can train your wrist and forearm muscles! If you workout continuously, you can compensate for the tired forearm muscles when you do pulling workouts!

How to Cable Reverse Curl

Starting Position

1. Make sure to keep your elbows close to your sides during the entire movement.

2. Don't swing the weight as you curl.

3. Don't lock out your elbows at the bottom of the movement.

4. Don't use momentum to move the weight.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your elbows tucked in and close to your sides, curl the bar up to your chest.

2. Pause for a second at the top of the movement and squeeze your biceps.

3. Slowly lower the bar back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower the weight and exhale as you curl the bar up.


1. Stand in front of a cable machine with a straight bar attached to the low pulley.

2. Grasp the bar with an underhand grip, with your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.

3. Make sure your elbows are tucked in and close to your sides.

4. Step back a few feet and create tension in the cable by leaning slightly forward.
