Hey all. here is my problem. My biceps are not very thick. My arms are about 16 to 16 1/2in. They are pretty skinny though. I want thicker arms. Does that make sense?
Here is what im doing now for my routine:
Standing Dumbell Curls
3x8 for each
Should i just keep working hard and wait?

curls are only secondary rate exercises for the biceps.
focus on doing chinups and pullups, close grip chins/pulls and it's variations, work up to a point where you can use 45lb plates on chin/dip belt. And by then your back should be a lot larger. Gotta gain weight, get a big back, and train the body synergistically in a whole unit sense rather than individually in order to get big biceps.
Drop some of the curl volume also. Or totally eliminate it and start doing exercises that requires you to lift "in space" : chins, dips, pullups."Knowing is not enough, one must apply" ~ Bruce Lee
