Default Building Better Biceps

One of the biggest mistakes lifters make is to start the movement by launching the bar or dumbbell with momentum. Creating momentum at the waist causes the lifter to lean back, moving the tension from the biceps to other muscle groups. Lifters often cheat at biceps exercises when it gets most difficult, usually at the 90-degree angle. However, working through that sticking point will truly enhance overall improvement in the biceps. The desire to cheat by launching the weight with momentum is natural, but the best results will come if you force yourself to work harder when it gets harder

I've been using a light weight and slow reps while focusing on contracting the bicep only to move the weight. If you kind of hunch over it takes any delt activation out of it. -John Meadows tip

Time under tension and isolation is how it grows. The result has been better pumps and I feel the DOMS in only my biceps, not my elbow joint and tendons.

I have issuees getting my biceps to "peak" I have ok arm size (relative to body) But no peak. I have gotten better pumps using a slightly wider grip and lighter weight. I altrnate these with one arm concentration curls (on my leg ) to finish off.....

Btw, do I smell Spam??

Yes, he was up to something. Every post was copy and paste, and he was doing it on 5+ other forums from what I can tell. These guys typically try to slip in, get their post count up, and then PM spam.

Spam indeed, but a good topic nonetheless.
