biceps question

  1. biceps question


    Since we know the only way to increase biceps size is to utilize exercises that allow the greatest amount of overload to be placed on the muscle do you think the burn machine would be perfect alterntive to dumbell and barbell?


    When considering effective exercises that work the biceps specifically, I try t never sacrifice maximum overload for the sake of variation. I try not stray too far from the basics such as heavy barbell and dumbbell curls.

    The short outer head of the biceps is recruited most during the supination of the wrists. Supination of the wrist can be performed when using dumbbells but not a barbell. Therefore, normally heavy dumbbell curls complement heavy barbell curls perfectly. So why not combine the two.

    So normally I do 3 sets barbell 2 sets dumbell but with this machine I could do 5 sets on it and get the best of both worlds. Any thoughts?



    Ageforce rep, Lets patch up those mistakes and stop going oral.

  5. Your theory is right, but you missed the elephant in the room: the greatest amount of overload on the biceps is placed by chins and not curls.

    Seriously? That's like asking how does a press overload more than a fly. More weight lifted=greater amount of overload.

  9. I love me some chins! curls...not so much

  10. kinda seems like a waste of money when you can get a perfectly good workout for biceps with variations of db curls and pullups.

    Absolutely. Spot on point made by somebody with exercise science credentials.

    I got into it with a guy about this awhile back. EMG studies prove it, considering your'e actually moving the same or more weight with the chin ups.

    Also, biceps brachii does supination, but the premise that a DB curl would place more emphasis because youre actually performing supination is wrong. The forearm is already supinated with BB curls, so it is contraction the same, but in an already shortened position.
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

    I think you'd get better results with the shake weight.
