Short biceps help
Hello everybody

What would you guys suggest for improving biceps development in case of a short muscle belly.
When I flex my bicep it rolls up my sleeve like a tought little knot, because of its short attachment to the tendon.

I have built up the brachialis muscle so from the side it does give an illusion of a passable lower biceps, and any tips or tricks are welcome. Its just my genetics and the kind of muscle attachment for the biceps i have.

Sort of a sideways answer to your question, your triceps harder. Close grip presses are probably your best bet.
Triceps are a larger part of arm size than the biceps are. Develop them and your arms will be much more massive.

No way to change the shape of a muscle. It only gets bigger or smaller. BUT, there are tricks. If you look at different bodybuilders doing front biceps poses you'll notice that they all point their hands in different direction. Sometimes their fists face their shoulders, sometimes they face forward. That's because the way you face your hands changes the gap between your biceps and your elbow, because of where the tendon connects. If you do a little posing in the mirror you'll be able to find the balance between making the best biceps peak possible and keeping your gap as small as possible by twisting your fist back and forth while you pose.
