    Then pelican push ups would probably be beyond your ability. Try chin ups.

    You can do curls with your bodyweight if you have access to a dip bar.

    You could put a rope or towel through a gallon water bottle that has a handle and do hammer type curls.
    These can be done one and two arm.
    You can do one arm curls and resist with the opposite hand/arm.
    Have a rope or TRX type straps hooked up to something overhead like a tree or something and do leaning curls.

    Might be difficult to rig something up but this park I took my kids to has a coated rope for a rope climb. That thing destroys my biceps.

    I got a 60lb. sandbag I mess around with sometimes. Curl it or bring up 1/2 to 3/4 and just walk around the yard with it. The slightly awkward grip is like hammercurls from hell.

    If you have anything heavy that's flat then you can curl that for effective biceps training given that you lift and control it properly to mind its inefficiency.

    You can curl a dining or other chair like a db by holding a leg. Hold the leg closer to the seat for less resistance, closer to the foot for more resistance.

    Resistance will also change depending on whether you're holding a leg aligned with the seatback or one at the edge of the seat.

    Pick something up and curl it. If it's too easy pick something heavier.

    Or, chin ups.
    Or, you can hang on a bar, diagonally with feet elevated and supported out front, and curl your partial bodyweight.

    You can also grab into a doorpost and curl yourself into it. Isometric curls would also be an option against anything really heavy.

    Best is for u to use adjustable dumbbells, but what i did to get bigger arms in general was more pulling workouts like chin ups and pullups, dips, sometimes u can go tot he parks for outdoor gyms and use them. If u eat rice u can use those ricebags to curl for biceps but make sure u use gloves (u can get rope burns)
