    When your doing row exercises use straps. It will allow you to use more weight therefore giving your biceps more of a challenge.

    You could also try changing exercises, and/or use a variety of sets and reps.

    Is it better to curl your wrist when you come up or keep them straight?

    I've looked up the same stuff man, I have the same problem as you. don't curl your wrist, you cheat the weight up that way and I usualyl get a pump in the firearm that I hate

    Gain more weight. It's hard to expect to have really thick muscle bellies at 185lbs.

    I agree. You want bigger biceps, stick to compound movements.

    I also do compound and isolation on bi's but never do too many sets. My arms seem to grow better wit the "less is more" approach.

    Heavy Barbell Curls will do the trick. Stick to 5x5 for a few weeks and see what happens. Vary your grip and use a straight bar one week and a curl bar the next. A narrow grip will get the outsides of your bis and a wide grip the insides.

    Biceps are a lagging part for me as well so I hit them twice a week. Once with a Back/hamstring day and then again at the end of the week for an arm day. I've noticed great size improvements with this.
