I wrote a good article a short while ago for Elitefts that might help you garner some ideas (or not).
Guess I can't post links LOL. Google "Neophytes: A Call To Arms" and click on the top Elitefts one.

Maybe you need to change arm routine Or integrate one of there for a change
One arm preacher curls
Also form has to do a lot with bicep growth

The point of these is to use a little extra upmh from your back and legs to get the weight up once your biceps are too tired to continue doing strict reps. So though you're using extra muscles to get the weight up, your still making your biceps work hard. So despite the word "cheat" it actually makes it killer for your biceps.
I've tried these before but honestly I prefer going from a barbell curl straight to a bent over underhand row position (especially if you work biceps on back day, or even if you don't). This way, you're using back muscles to help lift the weight but your biceps will still be engaged. Try it and you'll love it.

i squeeze my bis at the top of the movement. also, i dont let my arms lock into a resting position - maintaining tension on the bis has been helpful for me. probably already been said...

PS - To whoever said rings arent very accessible... I made a pair of my own per online instructions since normal ones are so expensive. Cost me like 15 bucks
Edit: My workout also includes power partial reps and triple dropsets on arm days

I do pull ups, dips, l sit pull ups, bulgarian dips, support holds. I try to vary my sets alot. 8-10 sets of 3 or 4 reps with extra weight then the usual 3 to 4 sets of 10.

Standing curls are the way to go. Barbell curls and standing hammers. I would also have to see what you are currently lifting weight wise too.

If your wanting your arms to get bigger you need to start worrying more about your triceps rather than biceps. Biceps are made up of predominately slow twitch muscle fibers which tend to develop slower. I'm not saying to disregard the bicep muscle; I would just give more attention to your triceps.Originally Posted by LastResort04
