The one-arm cable reverse curls is a variation of the standard reverse curl that specifically targets the brachioradialis muscle - a muscle that originates from the lateral supracondylar ridge of the humerus and inserts into the styloid process of the radius bone. To perform the exercise, attach a single-handle attachment to the low pulley cable and set the weight stack accordingly. Stand facing the weight stack, grab the handle with an underhand grip (palms facing down), and start with your hand positioned at your waist. From there, exhale and curl your hand up towards your shoulder while keeping your elbow stationary, and avoid jerking your upper body to build momentum as this can lead to arm injuries. Only curl your hand up towards the shoulder until you feel a contraction in the biceps and then slowly lower the handle back to the starting position.
