Standing Biceps Cable Curl

The cable straight-bar biceps curl takes a classic bodybuilding exercise, the standing barbell curl, and replaces the barbell with a handle attached to a cable. This is a common burnout move performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set, as part of an upper-body or arm-focused workout.


  1. Builds stronger, more muscular biceps
  2. Unlike a barbell, the cable allows for continuous tension
  3. Easy to change the load quickly for dropsets
