i was told by someone that after a set of bicep excersies to curl 10 or 15 pounds until your arm goes dead to get good peaks. is this true? `babaki
Most exercises I have heard to help bi-peak are preacher curls & the standing 2 hand cable curls, the ones done like you are performing a double bi pose. Stroyer
You want peaks man try this out...Start your bi wokrout with some low 45 degree incline curls and then move to standing curls with dumbbells then barbell then finish up with some cable preacher curls or regular preacher curls. With this routine ya lengthen the muscle and shorten it to hit every fiber in the biceps..... Oh the pain is WONDERFUL!!:D
Spider curls are the way to go, but it is gentics all the way baby. I have done shit to hit my peak and it is not much, my dad has a solid base ball in his arms even though he is only 160lbs and 49 yrs old, and mine is just thick but not much peak. That is why I say genetics and not so much the exercise. Dont get me wrong certain exercises will help bring it up, but dont expect any larry scott arms without the gentics.
You must know that genetics do play a major role in bodybuilding... especially when we are talking peaks in biceps. The classic case studies would be as "bigcat" has mentioned... Larry Scott who possessed an amazing set of arms with peaks that are only matched by Albert Beckles. On the other hand you have a guy like Matt Mendenhall who has amazing mass and symmetry but lacks biceps height... does that make him an inferior bodybuilder... not a chance... He has body-parts that make some Scott's look bad... just like Boyer Cole had crappy calves others had amazing calves but Boyer just compensated for it by building other bodyparts that created an optical illusion on stage that made his calves look good. If you are into competion, then you must take advantage of other body-parts that are your strong points and make the most out of them so that they over-shadow and minimize the effects of your lagging or weaker body-parts. You also must utilize poses that do not show or emphasize those parts that are weak or geneically inferior. Maxmuscle66
