  • If you want to get bigger biceps but feel you have tried every biceps exercise without seeing the results you have been aiming for, then you need to watch this video. Here I’m going to show you the best tip for improving every bicep workout you will do from here on out. In fact, when you see and feel how to perform this move, you’re going to start getting more out of your bicep exercises that may have not felt as effective as they should have in the past.

    It starts with understanding how the body prefers to work. When trying to accomplish a task, the body is always going to look for ways to compensate in order to be more efficient. It does not want to waste any unnecessary energy and therefore will look for other muscles that it can ask to chip in to complete the task, whether you wanted them to or not.

    When it comes to strength training, this is a great thing. Moving the most amount of weight from point A to point B is essential when it comes to getting stronger. In fact, it is the definition of strength. The more you can lift the more strength you have. That said, when you are trying to simply grow the size of a muscle, in this case the biceps, your job is to find ways to make sure the muscle in question does all of the work without the help of others.

    When it comes to the biceps, the forearms are the enemy of your gains. This is because this nearby muscle group (the flexors of the forearms) are not just in the immediate vicinity of the biceps but share a similar function in that they like to contribute to the pulling exercises in your workouts. This means that when you are doing bicep exercises that pull the weight towards you (as in every variation of a curl or even a chinup or a row) the forearms will contribute - if you let them.

    I say if, because if you want to take them out of it you can greatly minimize their contribution by consciously making a tweak to the position of your wrist on every bicep exercise. You want to allow your wrist to bend backwards as opposed to curl towards the upper arm when doing your exercises. This will take some practice and awareness but if you try the two handed waiter curl that I show you in the early part of this video you will be able to feel what it is that you are trying to recreate on every other movement.

    From here, you can do this on every other biceps curl exercise or chin up and get the same feelings and benefits. The key is never to let the bar or pullup bar drift too far towards the fingers. Grip them deep in the palm. This will prevent unnecessary overload on the distal deep finger tendons which will place an undue stress on the medial elbow tendon attachment.

    Give this a try and let me know how it works for you. I promise you, if you do exactly what I show you here in this video you are going to start building bigger biceps starting in your very next workout. It doesn’t take long to start feeling and seeing the benefits of this one powerful tip.

      Hey Jeff, you said that you should train your abs everyday, but doesn’t that counteract the idea that in order to achieve peak muscle growth, you should not train sore muscles?

            Hey Jeff, i'm running into a problem with bicep curls: at the top i cant quite close my elbow as much on the right side as i can on the left side. I also tend to perform a shrug like movement at the top on the right side, and I can't really seem to turn it off no matter how light the weight. I'm pretty much lost and can't remember of you've ever covered this, so I'm asking you to now!

            Edited for clarity on when i shrug right.

                I don't know about this one, physically you put the same amount of work to move the object as neither weight or distance is changed.

                Unless the forearm can assist in elbow flexion I don't see the point of this, other than increasing risk for wrist injury.

                    My brother in law turned me onto your channel about 6 weeks ago. I've been on a journey to get back in shape. Now down 25 pounds in 26 weeks. Building muscle as well. I was starting to see muscle results but I started applying tips like this to my workout and I've gained 1/2" on my upper arms in the past three weeks. Looking forward to the next three months. Shoulders were always a weak point but they're really coming around as well. Thank you.

                                                            Jeff is trying to fool us or he knows nothing about biomechanics. The only thing that happens when you bend the wrist is that the leverage becomes different (shorter). This allows you to use more weight. It does not matter at all for the growth of the biceps.

                                                                I did this last year with a 25lb dumbbell and a 25lb kettlebell. The kettlebell gave me way more burn directly to the bicep because you can open the hand and flatten the wrist as you stated. Jeff you just taught me that what I was thinking was correct!

With the kettlebell you make the lever longer so that 25 lbs is much heavier for the biceps than the 25 lbs of the dumbbell because the lever with the dumbbell is shorter and therefore less heavy for the biceps ... 😉

                                                                  Btw, burn says nothing about muscle growth.

                                                                              Captain(s) .. here's a question.. if you train for hyertrophy, does it also increase strength? or just the look and size ? Cuz he mentioned, if you're training for strength.. you do x.. and if you're training for hypertrophy, you do .. (the thing he showed in the video) ..so the question is.. will i be 'losing strength' ..but getting 'bigger' .. or will strength also be part of the outcome?

Working In the oil field i have notice those lifting habits( well not a habit but hard to lift things correctly when what your lifting does not have comfortable gripping like a , dumbell , for instance would have) injuries are more prone to occur becuase of the * rolling motion * of the wrist. Other have commented , and what I mean by others is weight lifters argue the idea the decline bench press is not good for your rotator cuff becuase of the awkward angle you are making that lift. Just my opinion bud. That's all.
