Preacher Curl with Cable

The preacher curl with cable is a strict isolation movement that builds strength and size in the biceps and forearms. The angle of the preacher curl places an emphasis on the lower portion of the biceps. Using a cable allows for better control while also ensuring consistent resistance on the muscles.
