Cable Preacher Curl

The cable preacher curl is a single-joint arm exercise that builds strength and size in the biceps using a cable stack and a preacher bench. It is popular in muscle-building arm workouts because the angle of the bench effectively removes the shoulders from the movement, largely isolating the biceps. It is generally performed for higher reps, at least 8-15 per set.


  1. Cable provides constant tension throughout the movement, including at peak contraction
  2. Easy to quickly switch weights for dropsets
  3. More comfortable on the wrists and elbows than a straight bar
