Today, I am going to tell 7 bicep exercises.This is one of the great exercises session which I love to do. But I have seen most of the people doing biceps workout most of the time.
They also look for a quicker way to grow their biceps size and they miss other parts of the body. To grow your biceps you have to hit with every angle as well as don’t hit biceps every day or on an alternate day.
Preferably hit your biceps muscle once in a week to see better result involving other muscle groups. Remember each and every muscle his own importance, give importance to your other muscles as you give your biceps.
Most of the people talk about the bicep exercises, they don’t talk about the anatomy of the biceps muscle, even they know in some cases.
Even several people don’t know which part of the exercise they are doing, what is the effect on biceps of that specific exercise. That is the only reason they’re not able to build the size of biceps. I am going to share best-7 bicep exercises that you must add to your workout regimen.

Now, adjust the height of the pulley machine on each side and make sure that they are set at a height higher than that of your shoulders.
