Everyone is always looking for some ridiculous new type of exercise that nobody knows about to build muscle. Well Nation, it is much easier than you think!
When performing the barbell bicep curl most people stick to a traditional shoulder width grip. This is because the shoulder width grip is the strongest which means you can lift more weight!
But who is to say that more weight equals more muscle? Yes, you need to push yourself and yes you need to work with progressive overload. But these are just a few of the techniques you should have in your workout arsenal, not the only ones.
In this video you are going to learn how to perform a “close-grip” barbell bicep curl and a “wide-grip” barbell bicep curl. By utilizing these two variations, you will be able to focus on activating your biceps in a new way which will result in your body having to recruit different muscle fibers for more gains! Also, be sure to watch the entire video as I give workout recommendations at the end!
