Do you want a pair of massive, ripped, veiny, skull-crushing biceps!? Start doing incline dumbbell curls. Incline dumbbell curls, in my opinion, are by far the best biceps exercise of all time…they work stupidly well. After one set you’ll get an INSANE pump, feel a ridiculous burn, and your biceps will look noticeably fuller (from all the blood rushing into your biceps, volumizing the muscle cells with water and nutrients). You’ll probably start hating me a little bit for the crazy burn you’ll get, but ohhhhh man do they work well.
As far as biceps exercises go, incline dumbbell curls are so effective because:
They force you to move through a full range of motion
You can’t use your back or momentum to help make it easier
It’s all biceps, baby! That equals one intense, effective, kickass biceps exercise.
Add 3 sets x 10 reps of incline dumbbell curls to your biceps routine. I prefer to alternate arms (lift the left arm, then the right arm, then the left arm, etc.), but you can also do two arms at the same time.
These are difficult so start with a weight that’s about 10 pounds lighter than what you use for a traditional biceps curl. Please…so that you don’t kill me a little bit inside…lower the dumbbell slowly and lower it all the way down!
