Have you busting your but for like ages in the gym and still not getting any results putting lean muscle on your biceps?
If yes, then this is for you.
Based partially on a cool short video I came across published by ScottHermanFitness YouTube channel, I would like to share this with you guys and gals.
People often ask why they couldn’t seem to make any strength or size gains with their biceps.
Both reasons have to with the range of motion.
So, let us get right into it.
Reason #1. Ego
Most people’s ego gets in the way and they try to curl too much weight than they can actually handle the full range of motion.
- Focus first on proper form with light weights
- Then try to figure out what your maximum weight is that you can perform a good rep.
- Now, pick a weight with which you can perform between 6 to 8 reps with proper form
Reason #2. Inexperience
The inexperienced lifter doesn’t understand what full range of motion is. Therefore they just copy what other people are doing in the gym.
And no, it isn’t always good what you see other people do in the gym.
If those people are also inexperienced or have ego issues, then everyone’s copying the wrong way to do a bicep curl.
