    There is no outer or inner bicep as it is basically one muscle. Just perform curls with a grip which is comfortable for you!

    according the book"the encyclopedia of modern bodybuilding" writen by Arnold Schwarzenegger,
    close grip works better for outter biceps, and wide grip works better for inner biceps

    In that book he also says that behind the neck press is good, doing most excersices sitting as opposed to standing is good and that you should squat with a plate under your heels. So don't believe everything you read in there!
