The Anatomy of Biceps:

Before we jump into the workout routine, let's understand the anatomy of the biceps. The biceps brachii, a two-headed muscle, is responsible for flexing the elbow and supinating the forearm. To effectively target and stimulate muscle growth, it's essential to incorporate exercises that engage both heads of the biceps.

The kit you'll need:

Hex dumbbells - a versatile and ergonomic choice for anyone serious about their fitness journey. The hexagonal shape not only prevents rolling but also allows for a more secure grip, ensuring you can focus solely on your bicep gains. With these dumbbells in your hands, let's sculpt those biceps to perfection! You don't need to go crazy on equipment, just a couple of sizes to challenge you.
