Assuming you are already doing plenty of compound movements, why not do some isolation for your biceps if you want to improve them?! Can't go wrong with barbell curls.
I do those but I'm trying to branch out.
I've been having the tendon nag at me a bit in my right bicep. (at the elbow) it's better now, and I did curls today with the EZ bar lost 20 pounds of strength in a couple weeks, but that might just be mental.

ok thanks. I didn't say it was easy. just always been skeptical of bw exercise.
it doesn't really matter how much you lift. i use to do alot of bodyweight chin ups and tricep dips. it just got too easy and wasn't doing much for me so i added some weights. just get the form down. surely soon enough it'll be easy meaning you'll get alot stronger so your forced to add weights. good luck
You are born weak and small and you die weak and small... What ever you decide to be in between is up to you.
Throughout my career, I've met a lot of people who've packed inches on their elbow flexors simply by doing chinning exercises. The thing is, the main reason they did chinning movements was that they didn't have access to a wide variety of equipment. Necessity, as they say, is often the mother of invention. These individuals, however, were determined to achieve international success, regardless of the limitations imposed on them. You can list Boyer Coe and Arnold Schwarzeneggar as part of this group.
Grasp the chin-up bar with a close, supinated grip. The palms of the hands should be facing you, and your pinky fingers should be 4 to 6 inches apart. Hang below the bar and then pull yourself up until your chin clears the bar. This movement should be done very slowly, on the order of about 15 seconds or so. Then, slowly lower yourself to the start position.
Don't short-change yourself by not coming all the way down. Like it is for any exercise, range of motion is critical.
If your arms haven't grown for a while, consider adopting this movement. It's a sure-fire mass builder."
thanks no pain no gains right? pain is nothing till your almost dying
Pretty sure he was talking about Senior Awsome....
and Time the F8ck out. youre telling me you live in the US and don't know what a chin up is .... BULLSH*Tzer...
but don't let these guys lie to you, it's when you tie a rope around a straight bar (known as a chin up bar) and the other end on your neck. Neck you try to see how long you can hang by your "chin" before you loose air. This will enhance the ratio of plasma reticulation in the veins in your neck which we all know will lead to the "fashioned" 8/7th look and HUGE biceps
Agreed these will add size all over the place. The biceps will have no choice but to grow. Weighted chinups are a great complimentary exercise. Ever see a male gymnast who does the still rings not have huge arms?
