Biceps Workout You Need To Get Bigger Biceps
Biceps Workout :
In today’s article we’re going to talk about the only two exercises you need to build big biceps. Biceps Workout can be done both indoor and outdoor but the result is satisfactory!
Biceps Functions :
Before we jump into the exercises, let’s talk about the function of the biceps.
You have elbow flexion, which everyone should know. You then have forearm supination, where you turn your forearm in so that your palm is facing you and lastly you have shoulder flexion.
The reason why you need to know the functions is because if you want to activate the biceps properly, you have to make sure that you’re using them as intended for what they’re supposed to do.
Is Direct Biceps Training Necessary?
Now I know there are going to be some of you saying that you don’t need direct biceps workout for them to grow and all I have to say is this.
Not every single person in the world, or even most people that I see walking around on a daily basis (whether they’re in shape or not) are blessed with amazing biceps genetics where the biceps bellies are twice as thick as mine.
I, for example, have pretty good biceps, but from the front, they don’t look too impressive. I have to basically walk around flexing if I want to show off how big my biceps are and it’s just the way they are.
It’s not because they don’t get trained and it’s not because my workouts are terrible, it’s just that genetics are different for everybody.
The only reason why I bring that up is that if you’re like me and you don’t have huge biceps bellies.
You do have to do some direct biceps work on top of your back training, plain and simple. It’s not rocket science.
Now it’s time to apply your knowledge of those functions of the biceps to the next two exercises so you can maximize your training and start to see some serious growth and improvement.
You’re also going to take advantage of overloading, working through the negative and then focusing on a huge stretch and flex in order to maximize your Biceps Workout as well.
Exercise # 1
Barbell Biceps Curl (6 – 7 Sets : 8 – 10 Reps) :
The reason why you’re doing a barbell biceps curl rather than with dumbbells is because I want to make sure you’re taking advantage of the functions of the biceps, one of them being forearm supination.
The barbell is going to keep you in constant supination throughout the entire range of motion, allowing you to maintain more activation on those biceps.
You’ll also be able to overload with more weight per repetition using a barbell as well. For this exercise, only take a 60 – 90 second rest in-between each set.
However, that doesn’t mean I want you throwing the weight around with sloppy form, because you still need to be in control.
But as you’re doing those 8 – 10 repetitions, let’s say you get to rep 7 or 8 and you want to finish off 10, but your biceps are tired and completely toasted.
You can then take advantage of my Cheat & Recover technique to get those last few reps.
You basically skip the concentric portion of the movement and focus on a heavy negative.
Techniques like Cheat & Recover need to be in your workout arsenal so that you know when to apply them and how to apply them safely.
