Knowing how to build bigger, more muscular biceps is about 3 minutes away if you read this post.

Are you using the very best exercises to train your biceps? You need to know…and you need to start using them right away!

But how do we determine what is the best exercise for the biceps…or any body part for that matter?

I was having this discussion with a fellow trainer a few days ago and I explained, “We actually need to look at the FUNCTION of a muscle in order to find out how to train it in the most effective manner possible”.

So what is the function of the biceps?

Look at your hand. Go. I mean it. Look at it. Now turn your palm to face upwards. Your bicep was mostly responsible for that movement. Do it again and put your other hand on your bicep as you do it. You’ll feel your bicep contract as you do it. The movement is called supinating the hand and is the first function of the biceps.

The second function of the biceps is to flex the elbow joint, bringing the forearm up towards your shoulder – think of the movement your arm makes when doing a regular barbell curl.

Therefore, any movement that has the hand fully supinated and flexes the forearm joint will be an optimally effective bicep exercise.

Ok, now that I’ve got that cleared up. What are the 3 BEST ways to get this done. Let’s have a look…

(1) CONCENTRATION CURLS

 

The American Council on Exercise commissioned exercise scientists at the University of Wisconsin to find out what the most effective biceps exercise was. The result…CONCENTRATION CURLS.

Not a surprising result given what I have just stated above. Total muscle activity was measured via wireless electromyography (EMG) machine. Electrodes were placed on the biceps brachii, anterior deltoid, and the brachioradialis.

Here’s a video of me demonstrating concentration curls with proper form. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel here.

 

(2) CABLE PREACHER CURLS

 

My favourite bicep exercise. It maximizes muscle fiber recruitment in the biceps, but also keeps tension on the biceps at every point on the range of motion (technically called ‘Constant Tension’).

The problem sometimes with standing barbell or dumbbell curls is that the resistance starts to ‘fall off’ the biceps at the mid-point of these exercises.

But you’ll notice with cable preacher curls that even a the very top of the rep, you have to fight to keep it there. I call this point the Peak Contraction Point (the point where most fibers are recruited), so it’s important that the resistance is maximal when in this position. Here’s my video demo…

 

Guys who have been through my hyper-intense Arm Blast Workout know how to make good use of these to put well over 100% of their 1-rep max on their biceps. Going >100% may sound impossible, but it certainly isn’t.

If you cannot do these at a preacher station, simply do lying cable curls as I demonstrate below…

 

(3) CHIN-UPS

 

Maximally recruiting the muscle fibers of a small muscle like the biceps usually necessitates the use of isolation movements. But Chin-Ups are an exception to the rule (using an ‘underhand’ grip). They meet the criteria very well and EMG tests have demonstrated clearly that they are incredibly effective at stimulating growth in the biceps.

I haven’t yet shot a demonstration video for Chin-Ups, but it’s in the works (coming soon). In the meantime,here’s a pretty good tutorial for chin-ups.

But proper form is all-important here. Basically, LET YOUR BICEPS DO THE WORK. All the “swinging around” I see going on these days is not going to do much of anything for the biceps (not to mention it just looks hilarious).

If you can do more than 12 good reps, add weight by using a dipping belt.

For all of the above, and in keeping with THT training guidelines, select a weight for each set that forces positive failure anywhere between the 8th and 12th rep.
