You can make your arms (and everything else) bigger with training and diet, but you can't effect how much "peak" you have. At least, not naturally.

The brachialis is the only muscle that gives the upper arm width and circumferential girth. No matter how high the biceps peak and how majestic its sweep when viewed from the side, if the brachialis is underdeveloped, the arm will look like the edge of a penny when viewed from the front...


...The more you develop your brachialis, the higher it will push your biceps, and the farther it will squirt out of the side of your arm, contributing even more to your arm's impression of overall size.

Now there's a shocker.

You want a bigger bicep peak? Get different parents.

Seriously, because of the stretch effect, incline curls are a great exercise to finish off a bicep workout. But then again, using a mixed grip on a heavy deadlift will produce the same stretching effect...on one arm anyway. Still can't influence the coveted "bicept peak" though.
