    def for the thickness in your bi's..hits the muscle under your biceps...when that grows it pushes the biceps up... makes the arm look bigger. also hits your forearms at the same time... great exercise.

    would be cool if there were a book that told you how to hit every different spot of your body, techinque in particular. that way you could get the spot on results you were looking for, nutrition included.

    nutrition would be easy,

    bulk, cut, grow muscle/cut

    No one has said this yet so I will.

    The bicep consists of 2 heads, the long head (outer) and the short head (inner).
    The short head (inner) is where you will find most of the mass/bulk and the long head (outer) is what creates the bicep peak. When you flex your bicep, the long head sits on top of the short head creating the bicep peak.

    You cannot isolate a certain bicep head as with any bicep exercise you perform, the bicep heads will contract as one. However, depending on the exercise you perform you can place more emphasis on that long-head (outer) to achieve hypertrophy on that head to create a better bicep peak.

    Hammer curls are excellent for this. Not to mention they also target the brachioradialis and the brachialis muscle.

    Where are you getting this information?...

    - 2 heads? yes
    - Long head sit on top of short head? no
    - simultaneous contractions? yes... merge into 1 tendon and insert unto same spot
    - hammer curls for peaks? not really... its primarily a brachialis/brachioradialis exercise
    If you want 'peaks' just do your regular curls and pick something that gives the long head a good stretch and if that doesn't work then you might want to 're-roll' your genetics dice.

    Hammers work the muscle (brachialis) that's connected to the biceps on the outer side (a small ball shaped muscle) which when worked, make the arms look wider and thicker. So unless you are ripped as a kunt, the bigger the brachialis, the wider the arm looks (in junction with biceps of course)

    they hit the brachialis alot more. The neutral position puts the arm in the best position to recruit the brachialis. This is the little ball shaped muscle in between your bicep and tricep and as it grows it will push the bicep up more giving the "peak appearance"

    Should always have a hammer curl type exercise when doing your bicep routine. It hits the brachialis which is the muscle underneath the bicep. Will add width to your upper arm and push the bicep up more, giving it the appearance of being larger. Also works the brachioradialis muscle in your forearm.

    Great exercise, make it a staple in your arm routine!

    Hammers and a caloric surplus are what I credit my arm growth to. I don't think it makes a HUGE difference, but the hammers do make my arm look better from the outside.
