    Standing barbell curls if I had to pick one movement.

    If you have the genetics then a bicep peak will come as you develop your biceps.

    A peak is predetermined by the shape of your bicep, in other words you either have it or you don't. No specific exercise builds a peak, that is an old gym myth.

    barbell curls...the best mass movement for biceps
    Chuck Norris once lost his keys and couldn't remember where he put them. So he tortured himself for half an hour until he gave up their location.

    sorry, resistance was the wrong word there... I meant cables... i think the way the movements provide constant strain on the targetted muscle helps development

    preacher curls are generally used to develop your long head of the bicep and not the so called "peak". i would go with bb curls or cable curls...add a double contraction at the top of the movement and feel the burn.

    just remember preacher curls are an isolation movement, not compound.

    Yep and compound is where you build your size! I would only do preacher curls or any iso exercise just before a comp.

    What about width? I have noticed my bicepts seem narrower than others. Anything I can do about that?

    Pepper...width is hard to get unless your born with it...if you increase your triceps then it should make the arm appear to be thicker though.
