High Cable Curls
Are Great for Peaking the Biceps
Bicep Exercises to Improve the Peak

High cable curls are one of the best bicep exercises for improving the peak of the bicep muscle.

If you really want to change the shape of your biceps and create that peaked looked when you flex your arms, then high cable curls are a must.

High cable curls are the best exercise to pump up the biceps and give them a shape that will turn heads.

Many cable exercises are effective at improving the biceps because the cables provide a constant tension throughout the entire range of motion. The constant tension really helps to pump blood to the biceps and can increase the pump you feel after your workout.

Bodybuilders use this exercise all the time, and it resembles the popular "double biceps" bodybuilding pose.

If you want to add inches to your biceps and improve the peak of your biceps include high cable curls in your bicep workout.

The pictures and instructions are below.

Bicep Peaking Exercises: High Cable Curls

Starting Position: Attach handles to the top portion of a cable machine. Adjust the weight, grasp the handles, and position yourself in the middle of the cable machine.

Form: Exhale and bend your elbows so that your fists almost touch your ears. Hold for a brief second and then slowly return to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: In this exercise make sure that you keep your shoulders still throughout the entire movement. Just focus on moving your elbows.

It's also important to really squeeze your biceps at the end of the exercise. Make sure you hold the finishing position for at least a second before slowly returning to the starting position.

As with all bicep exercises, make sure that you do not use your lower back to compensate during the exercise.

You can also do this exercise with one arm at a time to really focus on each individual arm-- 1 arm high cable curls.


There are so many ways to work the biceps, but if you want to improve the peak of your biceps you should definitely include high cable curls in your bicep workout.

Cables offer a different feeling than machines or free weights, and it's good to include cable exercises in your workouts from time to time.
