    I find that BB curls (not EZ-bar) w/ a shoulder-width grip works best.

    That and chins.

    For Bicep isolation I like 45 degree angle hammer curls.

    For compound movements - Chins

    "When it comes to muscle recruitment, it's important to note that even more important than strict grip width is the difference in the width of the grip and that of the elbows.

    To target the outer portion of the biceps, the elbows should be much wider than the hands (narrow hands grip/wide elbows position). To target the inner portion we want the hands to be wider than the elbows (wide hands grip/narrow elbows position)." - Christian Thibaudeau

    I want to get that outer bicep/tricep cut...so I recently started moving my elbows in and grip wide for tricep cable work and bicep preacher curls.

    On the preachers I go all the way down and when I come up I squeeze the elbows in a bit but I never come all the way up to the point where the tension is taken off of the muscle.
