“Finally, if you want to develop big biceps peaks, you should try to minimize forearm contribution to your biceps exercises. For example, when doing dumbbell curls, the tendency is to cheat the weight by allowing the wrist to bend. a as you lift the weight. This activates the forearm muscles and decreases the work done by the biceps. Over time, this will lead to less bicep strength and less overall bicep peak and size.
Add these standing crunches and Z Press exercises to your workout.
Close Grip EZ Bar Curl
Narrow EZ Bar Curls are one of the best exercises for developing the biceps peak, because when you curl with a firm grip, your shoulders naturally roll in a bit, which puts the emphasis on the outer muscle fibers of your biceps (i.e., the area responsible for building bigger bicep peaks). tixagb_7)
The trick is to make sure the bar doesn’t move too far in front of your body while you curl. If you let the bar go too far, you’ll put more stress on the inner muscle fibers of your biceps. So keep the bar close to your body without dragging it up your torso (that’s a different exercise, remember?).
Prioritize exercises that target the long head
Training both heads of the biceps is essential for overall development, but if you want it to specifically target the peaks of the biceps, you have to make sure you’re training the long stretch of the biceps.
To aim for the long head, you need to make sure you’re doing curls with a firmer grip.

with arms that look fuller. But as a result they will have a less pronounced bicep peak. A good example of this is the bodybuilder Sergio Oliva.
However, whether he has long or short bicep inserts, he can still drastically improve his bicep peak by understanding his anatomy and what really creates it. By the way: this applies to all muscle groups that you train and hope to develop. That’s why I designed each BWS program to help you really understand the anatomy of each muscle group you’re trying to target. And the best of all? Everything is rooted in science. To learn more about how BWS programs can help you look your best: QUICK:
The Long and the Short
I’m sure most of you are familiar with the muscles in your arms, and yes no No, you should, but it never hurts to repeat basic anatomy. There are three main muscles that make up the front of your arm: the biceps brachii, brachialis anterior, and brachioradialis.
- The brachialis sits below the biceps and adds thickness to the arm.
- The meat of the brachioradialis muscle is found on the forearm and contributes more to the size of the forearm than the upper arm.
- The biceps brachii is the main “bump” on the arm that everyone is eager to show off, and it is the subject of this article.
- The biceps brachii is a two-jointed, two-headed muscle that runs through the shoulder and elbow joint and consists of a long head and a short head. The term “biceps” means two heads and “brachii” means upper arm.
- The long head is on the lateral (lateral) side of the arm, near the lateral head of the triceps. The long head begins on the supraglenoid tubercle of the scapula, which is deep and inferior to the acromion process (that flat plate of bone above the shoulder).
- The short head is the medial side of the arm, the part of the biceps that is next to your pecs, obliques, and serratus. The short head of the biceps brachii begins on the coracoid process of the scapula.
- The two heads unite and become essentially one muscle, inserting mainly on the bicipital tuberosity of the radius; the tendon can be detached to also attach to the ulna.
- Collectively, the functions of the biceps are to flex (bend) the elbow, supinate the forearm (turn the palm up), and weakly flex the shoulder (raise the upper arm up).
