When it comes to bicep exercises, most movements work the biceps from the same basic position… Standing with your arms hanging down by your sides.
Just think of all the bicep exercises that you normally do:
– Barbell Curls
– Dumbbell Curls
– Cable Curls
– Preacher Curls
– Bicep Machine Curls
Most of them are just different variations of the same curling motion.
However, the exercise that you’re going to learn about in this video hits the biceps muscles from a unique angle because you’ll be curling with your arms held overhead from the lat pull down station.
This is a very strict bicep isolation exercise, you won’t be able to swing or cheat with this one, but it will pump up your arms and give you a killer peak contraction in the biceps muscles.
It works really well as either a pre-exhaust bicep exercise or a finishing exercise to really pump up your arms at the end of a workout.
Start off using really light weight to just get used to the movement and then work up set by set. I recommend keeping your reps in the 10-15 rep range. If you can’t do at least 10 reps with good form, the weight is too heavy for this exercise.
Give it a try for yourself and leave me a comment letting me know how it works for you.
