Hey! Its Lee Hayward here from leehayward.com and what I'm going to do is show a unique bicep exercise; you can do using the low seated pulley cable, the same one that you do the low pulley rows with. And a lot of this, this is a concentration curl variation and the benefit of using cables is that you get a constant tension throughout the muscles, throughout the entire range of motion unlike the free weight sometimes where you look at the tension in the mid range but you don't get it right up the beginning, or right up the top, because just a way you grab your setup. But when you're using cables, you can get that constant tension throughout the entire range of motion. So what I'm going to do is take you over to the low pulley row station and actually show you how you can set up to do concentration curl using the low pulley cable. Right here I have set up a single handle onto the low pulley table station. This is the same type of handle you would use if you were doing like a cable crossover or similar exercise and what I have as I'm sitting high on the bench with my knees, angled outwards and my feet placed high on foot plates and my knees are probably at a 90 degree angle here and I'm raising my elbow against my knee and doing the concentration curl similar as you would if you were doing the dumbbell concentration curl. But because we're using cables in the setup, I get a full range of motion and I get full tension throughout the entire range of motion. So right from the beginning, right up to the peak contraction, there is constant tension on the biceps, because we're using the cable variation. What I'm going to do now is show you how you can actually use this exercise and train the biceps past point failure. So I'm going to rep out those to failure using the standard full range of motion concentration curl as I just demonstrated and then after that, I can move into a one arm row where I bring in other muscle groups such as the laps, the traps and other muscles to assist the biceps to train past the point of failure. Again, I'll show the same thing from the other side. So this exercise right here is a great thing to do like at the end of your workout as a finisher to really pump up your biceps and get that peak contraction into the muscles.
