    If you want to get bigger biceps but feel you have tried every biceps exercise without seeing the results you have been aiming for, then you need to watch this video. Here I’m going to show you the best tip for improving every bicep workout you will do from here on out. In fact, when you see and feel how to perform this move, you’re going to start getting more out of your bicep exercises that may have not felt as effective as they should have in the past.
    It starts with understanding how the body prefers to work. When trying to accomplish a task, the body is always going to look for ways to compensate in order to be more efficient. It does not want to waste any unnecessary energy and therefore will look for other muscles that it can ask to chip in to complete the task, whether you wanted them to or not.
    When it comes to strength training, this is a great thing. Moving the most amount of weight from point A to point B is essential when it comes to getting stronger. In fact, it is the definition of strength. The more you can lift the more strength you have. That said, when you are trying to simply grow the size of a muscle, in this case the biceps, your job is to find ways to make sure the muscle in question does all of the work without the help of others.
    When it comes to the biceps, the forearms are the enemy of your gains. This is because this nearby muscle group (the flexors of the forearms) are not just in the immediate vicinity of the biceps but share a similar function in that they like to contribute to the pulling exercises in your workouts. This means that when you are doing bicep exercises that pull the weight towards you (as in every variation of a curl or even a chinup or a row) the forearms will contribute - if you let them.
    I say if, because if you want to take them out of it you can greatly minimize their contribution by consciously making a tweak to the position of your wrist on every bicep exercise. You want to allow your wrist to bend backwards as opposed to curl towards the upper arm when doing your exercises. This will take some practice and awareness but if you try the two handed waiter curl that I show you in the early part of this video you will be able to feel what it is that you are trying to recreate on every other movement.
    From here, you can do this on every other biceps curl exercise or chin up and get the same feelings and benefits. The key is never to let the bar or pullup bar drift too far towards the fingers. Grip them deep in the palm. This will prevent unnecessary overload on the distal deep finger tendons which will place an undue stress on the medial elbow tendon attachment.
    Give this a try and let me know how it works for you. I promise you, if you do exactly what I show you here in this video you are going to start building bigger biceps starting in your very next workout. It doesn’t take long to start feeling and seeing the benefits of this one powerful tip.

        Jeff bro, you looking like you're getting sick, and malnourished in the face. Start bulking up on that protein and carb game. Every video it sounds like you're literally going to pass out.

    17. Alexander Larin

      That’s so fun to see how people at the gym are doing that one dumbbell biceps curl:)

    18. Will Rooke

      For the DB one, I personally refer to this as a ‘waiters curl’. Imagine a tray with glasses on. Don’t spill it... no tips if you do🤣

    24. Fabio Cardoso

      But using this dumbbel curls, aren't you putting too much pressure on the wrists rather than the biceps? I didn't get the difference there.

    25. Dabi Ogunjimi

      Those veins scare me

    26. Alan Key

      Jeff's cake in his refrigerator at 6:40 gain biceps by just watching.

    28. Zetsuke4

      Same before I started training properly I only did bicep curls for a year before anything else so it's crazy overdeveloped along with the forearm compares to the rest kf the body

    29. Steven Poff

      I really like how you explain the science behind it. Talking about golfers elbow which I had because I put the weights on my fingertips. Thank you for all the help from all of your videos.

    40. gene978

      Nice Tip ( No pun intended ) lol

    41. Dwight Loot

      @ATHLEAN-X I have bicep tendinitis upper shoulder, I've gone low weights higher reps, now It's painful to bench, do skull crushers basically anything upper body. Is there a fix? How can I continue to lift without feeling pain?

    42. Khaldoun Azzam

      Great instructions, unfortunately my trainer told me the opposite.

    43. Michael Barnum

      Im going back to the gym right now to try this lol

    44. Greenman 01

      You Are Never Gonna Guess Who The Best Person Is... Read the first 2 words :) Give a sub! :)

      1. ForThe Win

        Nope

    45. DookieShoes

      Idk what’s more tasty. Jeff Cavaliere’s biceps or Chuck Norris’ beard.

    46. Rudolph Vargas

      Gonna try this today!!

    47. Steven Hagting

      Something that helped me on top of this was to make sure you keep tension in your biceps. To get an idea of what I mean: make the curl move Jeff describes, but with no weights and squeeze your biceps.

    48. Raz Gainz

      I'm not even lying when I say I used to do this in 2018 and I saw no on ever doing this. I would go to the gym after work late at night and some people would see me do this. This exercise kills your biceps but it gives what you need.

    49. J Dubbb

      The veins bruh

    50. SolaraProject

      Jeff is every Phlebotomist's wet dream.

    51. Nayan Samarakoon

      Simple tip but an excellent effect

    52. Bond

      Thanks jeff. Another reason i notice to bend the wrist back a little is that curling it flexes the forearm reducing the range of motion for the bicep. Ie. Extend wrist to loosen forearm allowing bicep to have greater range of motion at the top for a better squeeze.

    53. Wholewheatrye

      My like is so unequal to the excellent information you have just given me

    54. PoopSnail

      6:22 I feel so ashamed of myself once I lost focus after seeing that carrot cake.

    55. wkw

      That moment in the gym you know this exercise will work great but then you know people will look and say "oh, he got that from A-X" :/

    56. 0dq0

      Thank you!

    57. Gypseys Whippet

      Really helpful thanks

      Me - Gets home from gym. Needs to go back. Far out!!

    60. ThePresentation010

      Amazing. Isolating muscle stress/labor, pinpointing a target muscle is the real deal it seems. As another commentator said, that wrist control is a real game changer. Thanks

    61. Chris Love
