It's a workout that can target the outer biceps. It's important to move your elbows without moving them!

How to Overhead Cable Bicep Curl

Starting Position

1. Do not swing the handle or use momentum to curl the weight.

2. Do not lower the handle too far, as it can strain your shoulders.

3. Do not lock your elbows at the top of the movement.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your elbows close to your head, slowly curl the handle down towards your shoulders.

2. Squeeze your biceps at the bottom of the movement.

3. Return to the starting position in a controlled manner.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you curl the handle down.

2. Inhale as you return to the starting position.


1. Stand tall in front of a cable machine with an overhead pulley.

2. Grasp a single handle with your palms facing up.

3. Step back from the machine, so that your arms are fully extended above your head.
