Comments Off on Developing Big Biceps – Training Tips

Some anathomy – biceps (biceps brachii) is two headed (the short head or outer biceps, and the long head, or inner biceps) muscle and is responsible of elbow flexion (moving the hand toward the shoulder), elbow supination (rotating the palm upwards), and shoulder flexion/transverse flexion. There are two more muscles associated with biceps – brachialis and brachioradialis, those muscles are located on the side of arm and connects the main bicep muscle to forearm. These muscles should be trained too because they make the arm look bigger and stronger. The best exercises for biceps training. There are a lot of ways to train biceps, but some work better some – not so good. I will try to state the best of best exercises and tips just for you. Stick with the basics and you will succeed faster than you think. Exercises • Standing barbell curls – great exercise to start with – basic as it can be and effective. . . Very effective. So now we know that the main role of biceps is to curl the arm – and we will do it! Just as simple – curl your arm. OK not so simple, you need to hold a bar in your hands. The greatest biceps exercise ever! Technique – hold the bar with shoulder width grip, hand straight towards the floor and palms about an inch from your sides. Slowly curl the weight towards chest but keep the elbows locked at the same time. Stop when the bar reaches chest. Resist the weight as it slowly lowers to the ground to a full stretch position. • One arm preacher curls – consider this as an isolation type exercise, this exercise develops the peak of biceps witch is genetically determined. Developing the peak of biceps will make the biceps look bigger in general and also will make the biceps look well trained, not only big. Technique – hold a dumbbell with an underhand grip, place your hand on a regular preacher bench. At the beginning of exercise your hand is extended as in advance – slowly curl the dumbbell up, trying to touch your shoulder. When your hand is curled as far it can slowly lower it down. Repeat. • Incline dumbbell curls – also great exercise for overall strength and size for biceps. A full range exercise with extra stretch in the bottom movement. You should use less weight for this exercise (compared to dumbbell curls). This exercise produces AMAZING pump! Technique – lie back on an incline bench and extend your arms at sides towards the floor. Curl the dumbbells up with both hands but at the same turn your wrists as the weights are raised. • Hammer curls – an exercise for brachialis – to add some more to the overall size. Brachialis is the strongest flexor of elbow, runs along the side of upper arm. Technique – with elbows fixed along the sides in neutral position (palms facing each other) then curl the dumbbells up as in a regular dumbbell curl but do not twist your arms. Slowly lower the dumbbells and repeat. (Ensure that elbows are fixed at sides throughout the movement – this will add great load to brachialis). Also using sports nutrition supplements like creatine, for example, can boost size of your biceps (creatine keeps water in your muscle).
