MUSCLES ENGAGED Biceps Biceps are the pair of muscles on the front of the upper arm connecting the shoulder to the elbow. Your biceps are used in everything from turning a doorknob to lifting heavy items. Strengthening your biceps can greatly reduce the "flabby arms" look. Forearms We don't often think about our forearms when we exercise. This is a little surprising as they are one of the most used muscles throughout our daily routines. Your forearms are involved in almost every movement especially when exercising. Every time you are required to grip anything with your hands, you’ll be using your forearms. Equipment Used Cable Machine The cable machine is a piece of equipment used in weight training or functional training. A wide variety of exercises can be performed using the apparatus. Exercise Instructions Step 1 Start with your feet shoulder width apart, you knees bent and your arm tucked to the side of your body. Step 2 With your arm straight and your palm facing upwards, curl your fist up to your shoulder, contracting your bicep at the top of the motion. Step 3 Return arm to the starting position and repeat action.
