Dumbbells are also great at targeting the whole bicep unlike many other pieces of equipment where it only targets a certain part of the bicep muscle. Dumbbells target the inner, outer and lower part of the bicep very effectively.
The reason why dumbbells really stand out among all other pieces of workout equipment is because the amount of dumbbell workouts is insane. There are almost unlimited amount of really high quality and effective dumbbell workouts. There are workouts that target every part of the bicep muscle and mostly every workout is simple to perform.
There are some dumbbell workouts that stand out among others and provide you with the best bicep workout anyone could perform. I am going to name three bicep workouts using dumbbell that are extremely effective at building muscle and adding mass.
Remember to start with light if you are beginning so that you can learn the correct form. By mastering the correct form you will get better results out of your workout and greatly decrease the chance of injury during your workouts.
This first workout is called the concentration curl. The concentration curl is arguably one of the best at building bicep muscles. The reason why this workout is so successful is because it targets the muscle better than any other bicep workout. The fact that you only use one dumbbell at a time and is a very “concentrated” motion it creates a very targeted workout. Concentration curls should be a part of everybody’s workout no matter what your goal in the gym is. If you can master this workout then you will see some very nice results from using this workout only.
The second workout is called the hammer curl. This is the common bicep curl but is very effective at building muscle. One of best parts about this workout is how simple this workout is to perform. This workout can be performed by almost anyone and will build muscle.
The last workout is called the Zottman curl. Many people don’t know what this workout is but it is a great bicep workout to add to your routine. This workout is basically two workouts in one. It is similar to a normal hammer curl but when you curl it up you twist your wrists so your palms are facing away from you and you lower the dumbbells back down. This is a great workout to target the whole bicep and add a ton of mass.
All three of those bicep dumbbell workouts are great at building muscle and really target the bicep muscle. If you can try to incorporate these workouts into your normal workout routine you will see an increase in bicep muscle and better results.
