BICEPS ANATOMY

    

BICEPS ANATOMY








1. LONG HEAD
2. SHORT HEAD

The biceps is a muscle on the front part of the upper arm connected to the shoulder. The biceps includes a “short head” and a “long head” that work as a single muscle and can train by different biceps workout exercises.
The biceps is attached to the arm bones by tough connective tissues called tendons.
1. The tendons that connect the biceps muscle to the shoulder joint in two places are called the proximal biceps tendons.
2. The tendon that attaches the biceps muscle to the forearm bones (radius and ulna) is called the distal biceps tendon. When the biceps contracts, it pulls the forearm up and rotates it outward.
 

Biceps muscles groups

   
The bicep comprises of three main muscles, the biceps brachi, brachialis, and brachioradialis. In order to achieve optimum growth, we need to train all three muscle groups of the biceps.

Also probably the first exercise that comes to mind on arms day.  A standing barbell can be done with the verity of griping situation, Most common are wide grip, that is slightly wider than the shoulders and close grips, grips come inside of shoulder width.
 
The exercise targets the bicep brachi muscle. It just holds the bar according to your carrying angle which is the right way to perform these bicep curls.

Incline Dumbbell Bicep Curls

Incline Dumbbell Bicep Curls
A most common variation to target the bicep brachi muscle is in the incline position. In this exercise, the bicep is in its most lengthened state and the shoulder joints are hyperextended. Always keep your head on the bench and perform the curls with elbows perpendicular to the floor.

Preacher Curls

Preacher Curls
 
Another widely used biceps exercise is the preacher curl. Since the elbows are placed forward and rested on the machine’s cushion, the biceps are in a semi shortened position during this exercise. This creates great tension in the bicep brachi muscle which further leads to better hypertrophy.
 
How to do it.
 
1. To perform this workout we need E-Z bar and preacher bench.
 
2. Lift E-Z bar, your palm should be facing forwards and slightly tilted due to the shape of E-Z bar.
