There is a pretty famous saying in the gym bro level that education is important but the growing biceps are the way of life. Your bicep size matters not only for the visual appeal but also for the confidence-boost. The idealized physique takes years of hard work, dedication and proper diet and many of us are killing ourselves in pursuit of it, no matter with wrong attempts. Biceps are they key part of your body growing which is really taxing. May be you have been doing things wrong so far.
Reasons why your efforts are going in vain:
There is no consistency in your training:
Overtraining doesn’t give you a quick result. Your biceps need to rest for a day or two in a week. There are guys who train their biceps at least thrice or four times a week. You however, always have to remember that biceps have a small muscle group which recovers quicker than other muscles and they are active during the pulling exercises too. So, you need to focus on your biceps maximum twice a week.
Use the right variations and forms for Biceps:
No matter if you are doing seated or standing bicep curls, it bears the same effects in your body. Also, switching barbells to dumbbells also don’t make significant difference. So, in order to attain the overall muscle growth, you need to concentrate on training them at various lengths. Variations should be different to train your arms better.
Don’t skip compound movements:
Since testosterone plays a pivotal role boosting strength and muscle growth, you should go for heavy compound lifts that help generate testosterone in your body. If you train your biceps with a heavy compound lift, it helps you achieve a better bicep hypertrophy.
Keep your muscles under tension for a longer period:
You need to keep your muscles under tension for a longer period of time and determine the number of plates accordingly. Go easy with the plates because more weight exhausts you soon and make sure each rep endures more than 2 seconds.
Inducing hypertrophy is equally essential like getting a good stretch. Also, a strong peak contraction at the top of any sort of curl is also important. Squeezing the biceps to utmost level generates better blood flow, shoots off more fibres and increases lactic acid burn thereby promoting the muscle growth.
