    Best mass building bicep exercise

    Just curious which curling exercise is best for mass building. I am currently on a bulk diet. I usually do 3 sets for my biceps. I like either heavy bar curls or incline dumbbell curls. I curl both arms at the same time. Really hits my bis good. I use pretty heavy dbs for my strength. 6-8 reps.

    Straight Bar curls are the best for overall mass.

    either standing bb curls or EZ-bar curls. I alternate them every other bicep workout

    Thanks for all the exercises. I tend to use my back when straight bar curling. Thats why I stick to DBs. I will try more straight bar with less weight.

    For me, it's concentration curls. Gives me a good height, width and length.

    concentration curls are not a mass builder IMHO. They're great for building peak!

    there is no "building a peak" or adding "height or width" other than just making your muscles bigger. their shape is due to genetics, you cant change the shape of your muscle belly.

    thats bull$hit. Hitting a muscle with different grips and varying degrees of angles achieves different results.

    I'm still a fan of hammer curls for optimal growth.
