It’s been said that building big arms, especially the biceps peak, starts with choosing the right parents. While it’s way too late to address that problem now, it doesn’t mean you can’t learn to work with what you’ve got by picking the right exercises.

When it comes to the biceps peak, that means identifying moves that more specifically focus on the biceps’ long head. Of the pair of exercises below, one does that better than the other, but both play important roles.

When you set the incline bench to 60 degrees, you’re in a position in which your arms are behind the plane of your body. Focusing on the biceps peak, aka the long head, has everything to do with the stretch placed on a particular head. From this position, the long head is prestretched in the start position, meaning it’s capable of a stronger contraction than a muscle that’s not fully stretched.
