    barbell curls as heavy as you can go with good form.

    I think if you progress with weight and reps your bi's will widen out.

    Its probaby just the way you are, some people have high bi's.

    Just concentrate on basic moves for your bi's where you can hangle the most weight.

    If you have a wide grip you work inner bi

    If you have an inner grip it works outer bi more.

    My bi's have high peaks, it's just the way my bi's grow.

    What exercises for bi's have you been doing?

    Use a straight bar, preferably olympic, when curling. The EZ bar apparently removes a LOT of the effort from the biceps and uses the surrounding muscles.

    Sounds like hogwash to me that.

    The EZ is just easier on the wirsts for some.

    Excellent, I love posts on arms.

    Arms to me have to be the most scrutinised, yet still one of the lesser important muscle groups in the food chain!

    I personally would heed Dirtyvests advice. It is simple and straight to the point. Science and bull**** left at the door. Pick a single meat and veg exercise, hammer it, add weight to the bar on regular intervals until you plateau. At this point switch it up for another heavy hitter and repeat! eventually you can come back to your first meat and veg exercise and watch with a great big smile as you sail past your previous plateau.

    You keep the form reasonable, keep progressing in adding weights to the bar and finally put your time in at the dinner table and your set!

    I am Ripper... Tearer... Slasher... Gouger. I am the Teeth in the Darkness, the Talons in the Night. Mine is Strength... and Lust... and Power!

    Magnetic resonance imaging shows that a straight bar bicep curl uses both biceps muscles and the brachialis, EZ curls have little effect on the brachialis.

    I did say apparently, as I have read a few posts by well respected members who say this.

    For instance;
