1. Cable Curl with Curled Bar

  • 4 sets
  • 8-10 reps
  • 60 seconds rest

The first exercise in this list of 3 best cable exercises for huge biceps will mimic the traditional barbell curl but in a cable machine and with a curled bar. On the first 2 sets, you grab on the inside part of the bar, and the last two sets on the outside.

This exercise will teach you to create a better mind-muscle connection and put tension on the biceps during the eccentric part of the movement, which you hardly get if using dumbbells or a barbell.

2. Rope Cable Curl Superset

  • 2 sets
  • 8-10 reps
  • 60 seconds rest

With a neutral grip, perform hammer curls with a rope on the cable machine for 8-10 reps. To complete the superset, take a step back, lean forward on your knees, shorten the range of motion and curl the rope towards your forehead. This last one hits the short head for wider biceps.

3. Monkey Curls

  • 3 sets
  • 45-sec under tension
  • 45 seconds rest

The last one in the list of best cable exercises for huge biceps focuses on having your biceps under tension for longer. Lying on the floor with the cable machine directly above your head, you will be curling the bar towards your forehead.

“This position is really great for taking the anterior deltoids away from the move,” Adashun says. Since it has to have your biceps under tension for 45 seconds, this would be more or less around 20 reps.
