    Cool bicep supination vs bicep curl

    i like both variations but I get a better peak workout with the curl and a more fullness overall with the supination version. Asking which variation is better overall? Other bicep exercises to build mass?

    Genetics plays a roll. We have a guy at our gym with great arms and only does barbell and preacher curls. So no forearm movement for him, just elbow.

    That's a contradiction. Swinging and contraction are opposites. FWIW, preacher and spider curls all day long for me.

    The look of an arm is based on individual genetics, which among other things determine how someone reacts to training, muscle belly shape and muscle tendon insertion points.

    Large arm size development and the appearance of large cutup arms on someone that has a lower level of body fat is determined by their genetics.
    They have a genetic disposition towards developing large muscular arms.

    If you see a picture of a pro bodybuilder in a magazine or in a video not using a full ROM on any exercise it's because they have figured out over time, exercise variation that works for them, based on their genetics.
