There are many variations of bicep curls from dumb bells, barbells, resistance bands and of course cables! I like to change up my machines to target the muscles in a slightly different way. Today’s move is done on cable machine with the rope attachment. Now there are even more ways to change up a standard bicep curl on a cable machine by altering the grip and/or the attachment. The rope adds some isolation that I like because it’s not stable and when you get the the top of the move you can get an extra squeeze as you separate the two ends. Try doing this move for 10-15 reps with 4 sets. Don’t let the weights just drop out at the end, go slow and controlled throughout the move!
After I do a heavy lift on leg day I like to finish with some smaller muscle groups to really get that burn! I promise you if you do these three moves you will feel the burn and help shape a nice round booty!
1. Fire Hydrant – in a dog plank lift on leg laterally keeping knee bent. You’ll feel this is your abductors and your obliques!
2. Donkey Kick – in a dog plank extend leg out and raise to be in line or above your back. Remember to squeeze it as you extend.
3. Straight Leg Lift – in a dog plank extend leg out and lift it up and down squeezing into your glutes at the top. This move will help you lift your booty and strength your hamstrings!
Do each of these moves 25x on each leg…4 times! Alternate sides and I PROMISE you will feel that burn. The results will be worth it!
