    Bicep gap?... permanent?...

    Yea, well i was just reading that post about is it true if you have a big gap before your biceps it limits its side everyone called that out saying its bull ****. My question is the gap will it fill in as i continue working out or am i stuck with this ****. I have like a 1 1/2 inch gap and its huge iunno i can fit three fingers before my biceps.

    I'm going to start doing them, just realized I can use my adjustable bench for them.

    One-arm DB is fine right? (I'm always seeing people do it with barbell)

    And I dunno what angle to use.

    Yes i know that.. lol

    But notice i said when "measuring" the arms, 50% of the measurement comes from the bicep if not more, Even though the tricep is the "bigger" muscle.

    Bull**** IMO.

    If you want good peaks you need to train the bicep long-head (outer) as when tensing or flexing the biceps the long head rises above the short-head (inner)

    People with good bicep peaks have good mass on the bicep long-head.

    Wrong. The general assumption, is that triceps are 2/3, or 66%... that is also wrong. The actual number is 3/5. So, more like 60%. Obviously it's not going to be an exact number, but the calculation is based on the number of heads per group. Bicep, contains two heads(hence "bi"), and Tricep, contains 3(hence "tri"). Making it in total, 5 heads. Three of which are tricep, heads.

Making it in total, 5 heads. Three of which are tricep, heads.




    Amirite?



    nvm,

    no your wrong.

    Okay so I am a physical trainer, I not only help people get on healthy exercise routines, but I help them sculpt their bodies for their goals of how they want to look. So many people will tell you that you can't change it, its "genetics". I hate that term so much! Everything in our bodies is genetics, but you can alter genetics. Just as a person can alter their brain genetics with drugs, one can do so with diet and exercise (its just got to be specific to your goal). Now, it is possible to fill this gap but don't expect to do so within a year or two or with moderate training and a regular diet. This will take some years and a lot of hard work. So there are two main things to look at when building into the muscle gap. You will want to build the biceps, of course, and the forearms, which is something a lot of people look pass. It is super important to build that brachioradialis muscle in the forearm, and those biceps heads. Preacher curls, if done correctly, will help elongate the biceps heads along with daily stretching. And chin ups, pull ups, and dumbbell hammer curls will all help with the formation of the brachioradialis muscles. There are many other exercises that'll help with these as well. A high protein, low sodium, and low sugar diet will also aid in the building of those muscles. So as long as all this is done correctly, you will eventually be able to close that gap. It's going to take a minimum of probably 4 or 5 years with a two finger gap and a consistent, intense workout routine. But if you really want this, it is possible. When I first started training, I HATED my gap. It was a hair over an inch but with the steps I just mentioned, I closed it. I worked very VERY hard and I am still working hard to make it go even further pass just touching. Im in my late 30s and Im 6'2".
