Bicep Training Tips

Bicep Training Tips

It's time to show off those shapely arms you’ve worked so hard for!

Biceps might not be at the top of your priority list when it comes to training but they still shouldn’t be neglected. Whenever I train them, I work to engage the muscle fully and get the most activation.

Here are some of my training tips that you can incorporate into your program, plus a killer biceps tri-set that will help you get a little gun show going of your own.

  • Don’t swing the weights! Lower the amount you are using if you have to, but avoid using momentum to move the weight.
  • Keep your shoulders down and back: Something I have to remind myself constantly.
  • Don’t lift your elbows: It brings your anterior delts into the movement.
  • Keep your wrists in line with your forearms as you bring them from the stretch position to the contraction.
  • Change up your tempos! Try lowering the weight with a three-to-four-second negative—an advanced move, so don’t be afraid to lighten the poundage. Or try a 2 sec contraction. Aim for constant tension.

Gun Show Biceps Tri-set

Do all three exercises back to back. Rest one minute, and then repeat for three rounds.

  1. Alternate Cross-Body Curls: 3 sets x 8 reps ( Hold a 2-second contraction at the top)
  2. Incline Dumbbell Curls: 3 sets x 10 reps (Include a 3-second negative)
  3. Dumbbell Spider Curls: 3 sets x 12 reps (Hold a hard flex at the top)
