More Bicep Exercises


Concentration Curls
  • Used by professional bodybuilders to add height to their biceps peak.
  • Sit with your feet 4-6 inches wider than your shoulders.
  • Grasping the dumbbell in hand, brace the back of your tricep against the inside of your thigh near your knee.
  • Use biceps strength to curl the weight in a semicurcular arc to your chin.
  • Your arm should be completely straight with the weight at your hand. Your other arm can either be rested on your other knee or wedged the triceps of your working arm.
  • With palm facing forward (supination), slowly contract your biceps to bring the weight up to your shoulder.
  • Tense your biceps as strongly as possible in this peak-contracted position, then lower the weight slowly back along the same arc to the starting position.
  • The real key to this exercise is mental concentration. Stay focused on working those biceps!

Barbell Preacher Curls
  • This is an excellent overall mass builder for the biceps, particularly adding mass to the lower biceps near the elbow.
  • Lean over the preacher bench with your arms parallel.
  • Grasp the barbell or have a training buddy place the barbell into your supinated (palms face-up) hands.
  • The upper edge of the bench should be wedged under your armpits.
  • Use biceps strength to slowly curl the weight directly upward to shoulder level.
  • After reaching the peak, slowly return the weight to starting position.
  • Don't attempt to bounce the weight in the bottom position, as your biceps are vulnerable to injury. Ease the weight down.
  • You can also do this exercise with dumbbells; both arms at a time arcing slightly larger than your elbows' width, or concentrating hard on one arm at a time. You can also do this with a reverse palms-down grip to stress the forearms.

Lower Cable Curls
  • Bodybuilders use this exercise to isolate the biceps.
  • Grasp the handle on each side of you and stand with your hands face up.
  • Use biceps strength to slowly curl the weight toward your shoulder, keeping your elbow in the same place.
  • At the finish position, flex your biceps to give an additional burn.
  • Lower the weight slowly back along the same arc to the starting position.
