One-Arm Cable Preacher Curl

Grow your guns one at a time with this classic isolation movement

Building bigger biceps means placing them under as much tension as possible, and you’d be hard-pressed to find an exercise that does this as effectively as the one-arm cable preacher curl. It’s a unilateral move that promotes balance across your arms by isolating each bicep, and adding the preacher bench only makes it more challenging. It holds the upper arm in place to focus all stress on the biceps. Substituting a cable for a dumbbell ensures constant tension on the target muscle throughout the range of motion, making this a perfect finishing move for sculpting bigger and better arms
