    Hammer and preacher curls work for me (as well as the occasional concentration curl).
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    what's your biceps routine now?

    I like BB curls, Preachers, DB Curls, and DB Preachers

    nothing fancy really, just heavy weights for anywhere from 8-12 reps
    Starting to suck a little less at benching...

    Eat more food!

    It takes an overall weight gain of 10-15 pounds to add one inch of arm mass.

    I'd say some form of standard curl, a hammer curl, and a reverse curl.

    My favorites:

    EZ Bar Spider Curl
    DB Preacher Hammer Curl
    Reverse Cable Curl

    Lift heavy for the first half of the workout to get the test going and breaking down the muscles without the lactic acid killing them. Then go to a slightly higher rep at the end like 10-12
    New to BB, need some green to spread.

    owe greens to

    My arms grew when I lightened up the load a bit and flexed real hard at the top of each rep. Three seconds up, squeeze, three seconds down.... I once heard if you can't flex with the weight then its too heavy. Take that as you will but it proved to be sound advice for me.

    Barbell cable curls (wide grip) - 2 sets of 6-8 reps
    Hammer curls - 2 sets of 6-8
    Concentration curls - 1 set of 10

    Week 2:
    Barbell cable curls (close grip) - 2 sets of 6-8 reps
    Barbell cable curls (wide grip) - 2 sets of 6-8 reps
    Cable curls - 2 sets of 6-8
    Concentration curls - 1 set of 10

    Week 3:
    Barbell cable curls (close grip) - 2 sets of 6-8 reps
    Barbell cable curls (wide grip) - 2 sets of 6-8 reps
    Precher curl - 2 sets of 6-8 reps

    I can agree with this.

    What's the most effective way for our 165 pound OP to add arm size?

    Is it through arm specialization?

    or

    Spending more time on the big compounds and eating like his life depends on it?

    I know not everyone wants to be huge, but the fastest way to add bicep mass is eating at a caloric surplus while getting as strong as possible on the big compound lifts.

    I see a lot of small guys worried about their arm routine. I see very few small guys worried about their squat and deadlift progression or their caloric intake.

    That's the point I was trying to make. Flame away.

    Through a routine that focuses on the basic exercises, which includes direct arm work.

    And since we're talking bicep routines....

    This one one is my favorite....

    One arm DB preacher curls 4x12-15
    Incline Curls 4x12-15
    BB curls 4x12-15

    That's it. I train forearms on back day. I learned a long time ago that (for me) bicep training is more about finesse , constant tension, and controlled movement. I can swing around 135 for sets of 8, but I get a much better workout with 95 for controlled sets of 12. Everyone is different though.

    Long Arms + Short muscle bellies = Teh Suck

    For bicep mass, I like barbell curls and standing dumbell curls. I usually finish off with preachers too. Eat more as well.
    "Shut up and lift!"
    "Eat big to get big."
    "Deadlift and grow."
    'Train, Eat, Sleep."
    "Knowledge is power."
    "What does not kill you, will make you stronger."

    Ergo sum fortissimus.

    or

    I know not everyone wants to be huge, but the fastest way to add bicep mass is eating at a caloric surplus while getting as strong as possible on the big compound lifts.

    I see a lot of small guys worried about their arm routine. I see very few small guys worried about their squat and deadlift progression or their caloric intake.

    That's the point I was trying to make. Flame away.
    Second point compounds ftw

    This. Chinups, heavy squats, heavy deadlifts, and an immaculate diet are the only things that will make your biceps grow.
