    Lengthening the bicep?


    Hi guys,
    I was just wondering is there any way to lengthen the biceps for those of us with a short bicep?
    A lot of people say it's genetics and that it can't be lengthened, but surely there's a way!
    What do you think?

    Make it larger or stronger, yes.
    Change it's insertion points and belly length, no.
    It is kinda like trying to make yourself shorter or taller.

    Nope and it limits your size potential. It sucks but life isn't fair.

    Exactly...what made mine larger were strict bb or db curls with heavy weight but not so heavy to where my shoulders were used...lately I've been doing incline db curls and spider curls these movements have helped shape my bis..and of course heavy back work and deads will help tons
