Best Bicep Exercise

People often ask me, what is the best bicep exercise? And I tell them, the best bicep exercise is the standing bicep curl. Why do I think this is the best best bicep exercise? Let me explain...

There are a few key factors that make the barbell curl the best bicep exercise. The first is the range of motion. For a bicep exercise to be labelled the best bicep exercise it must have a full range of motion. This means your arm goes from being fully extended to fully curled. It's this full range that gives your bicep muscles the best workout.

But probably the most important factor that makes the barbell curl the best bicep exercise is the amount of weight you can work with. To put it simply, the heavier weights you lift the stronger you become and the faster your bicep muscle grows. The standing bicep curl allows you to stack up heavy weights for low reps and big muscle gains.
