Lying Curls

This first exercise is a very uncommon one, which you rarely see people do during their arm workouts.

Not only are we using the cable row machine to lie down on and create a horizontal curl, but we also apply an extended range of motion.

In traditional curling movements, you won’t see the elbow come up.

For this exercise however, we’ll do just that – Lift up the elbow and bring the bar right in front of the forehead.

Though that will give a bit more activation of the deltoids, it will also do so for the biceps.

Try it.
