I would like to start by apologizing for the foul language featured in this post's music #liljon Secondly, I would like to confirm that yes, that is indeed a hammerhead shark above my head in the 2nd excercise (my gym has an ocean theme on display and fish are everywhere #gilsgym )
My Bicep workout
1 preacher curls
2 overhead cable curls
3 standing barbell curls
Here are some bicep facts. Your upper arm consists of your biceps, triceps and brachialis ... while biceps are often times looked at as being most important for arm size, they actually only make up for a third of the upper arm. The "bi" in Bicep refers to the two heads that this muscle is composed of (the long head and short head)
In order to effectively hit each head, curling movements should be performed with variety of grips, angles and equipment. however if you would like to specifically target each section then you can use a technique that I displayed in the first excercise. You can alternate from a wide to a narrow grip. While a wide grip puts tension on the short head, the narrow grip hits the long head.
Next I performed overhead cable curls to build the peak of the bicep and barbell curls for overall mass development. Regardless of the excercise being performed I always make a point to focus on the squeeze of the muscle and never let the weight dictate my form.
One last tip that I would like to give is to follow a balanced strength training routine. Meaning: train all other body parts! Heavy compund excercises for you back can actually build your biceps just as much (if not more) than bicep isolation exercises. Examples of this are weighted chin-ups and heavy barbell rows.
