Dumbell Workout - Big Bicep Tip for Mass


The path to the biggest biceps possible I believe is through a dumbell workout. I will describe a major tip that will push your biceps beyond normal growth and into the realm of the unreal. I will focus on overall mass size which give the biceps a big and powerful look.

Mass size: There is nothing better for mass size like a standing bicep curl dumbell workout. Essentially your are standing and curling individually and alternatively a dumbell in each arm, doing so in a controlled semi strict fashion, with a weight in which you can perform around 6-8 strict repetitions with. Where most trainees fall short though is that they end their standing bicep curl dumbell workout short. You still have some more juice left in your biceps, the problem is you are unable to strictly perform any more repetitions. The answer then is to employ cheaters, in a safe, rhythm like manner. Simply pause then swing the dumbell up to the midpoint and concentrate on working it all the way up from there. Then slowly lower the dumbell all the way down working the negative portion of the exercise. Generally cheating in weight training exercises can be frowned upon, though when applied for the last reps in certain exercises such as a standing bicep curl dumbell workout, it is accepted and can be very beneficial, given the trainee does not go overboard and cause himself injury.

Arnold frequently employed cheaters for bicep curls, attributing them to the added mass which took his biceps over the top. It is one of his bicep routine "secrets" which became popular only later in various publications.

Remember, it is those last few repetitions which are the real over the top muscle builders, and if we can squeeze those important 3-5 additional reps out through cheaters in our standing bicep dumbell workout then we are literally giving our biceps no other option than to overcompensate in recovery and grow larger!
