    Hammer Curls ( FOR GIRTH ?? )


    I was in the gym lastnight, and a friend of mine told me that by doing hammer curls, it adds girth to your biceps . (( Is this TRUE ?? )) I do both DB curls and Hammer curls, but I did not know that thats exactly what the hammer curls did , or susposedly does. You will have to excuse me if this is a newbie question...
    By girth, I am talking over all thickness... Makes it wider.
    Heck I honestly do not know. I just know they give me awsome forearm pumps or so it seems...

    Thanks for you info.

    Stinger, Hammer Curls build the brachialis (the outside bicep muscle) and brachioradialis (the connector muscle between the main bicep and the forearm muscle). Wehn your brachialis muscle is really developed, it does give the appearance of a thicker, wider arm.
