    Been trying to up my peek

    I had some great advice from a member on another forum who has some pretty good peek.
    I am going to try it out.
    It Involves preacher curls and lots of them lmao.

    But I also found this


    Every now and then a bodybuilder comes along with an exceptional body part that gets everyone asking what the secret is to developing such amazing muscle shape. Larry Scott, for example, was known for the long muscle bellies and an impressive peak of his biceps. One of his favorite exercises for biceps was preacher curls, which started the belief that doing “Scott curls” would allow anyone to develop the same shape of their biceps. Is it really possible to grow specific areas of a muscle to change or improve its shape?

    RESEARCH

    Brazilian researchers performed an experiment to determine if doing curls would lead to muscle growth in specific areas of a biceps or if growth occurs evenly throughout the muscle. Subjects performed four sets of eight to 10 repetitions of one-arm biceps curls three times per week. Muscle thickness was then measured at the upper, middle, and lower portions of the muscle.

    FINDINGS

    After 12 weeks the researchers found that the biceps grew at the upper, middle, and lower portions of the biceps equally.

    CONCLUSION

    Contrary to popular belief, it does not appear possible to make the biceps grow non uniformly along its length.

    APPLICATION

    The shape of your biceps is determined by genetics. The only thing you can control is their size. This study tells us that if an exercise will make your biceps grow, they will grow evenly and it won’t have an impact on their shape. That being the case, use exercises that

    A guy once asked me in the gym, “how do you get big arms.” Genetics, I replied. Said it in a non-condescending way. He wasn’t expecting that answer, but there it is. I also have big calfs and never work them out. At the same time my upper chest and abs are lacking. Some have abs that pop through, I don’t. I also don’t have the peak in my biceps, they’re just big all over. All these genetically gifted bodybuilders giving advice is mostly irrelevant to the average person.
