Q: Every time I train biceps, my forearms get pumped like crazy, and my bi’s hardly at all. I wouldn’t really care if my biceps were still growing, but they’re definitely lagging. What can I do?
A: I have heard this many times before, and in every case the best solution seems to be this simple little tip: On all curling exercises keep your wrists in a fully extended position rather than straight.
That effectively relaxes the forearm flexors and forces the biceps to work much harder during all curling movements.
Do not worry if it forces you to lighten up on the weight. The increased fiber activation in the biceps will enhance their growth tremendously and more than make up for a small blow to your ego!
