        Its all genetics, length is determined by how far from the elbow your biceps inserts into your biceps tendons.
        To fill in the lower gap as much as possible as allowable by genetics, you could try doing a reverse preacher curl the way Larry Scott did them.

          Genetics yes but you can target that area and build up what you have. Try Spider Curls, both dumbell and with a barbell. You can even do them both in the same workout if you want. Very similiar to the preacher curl but you do it on the opposite side of the pad. Make sure to use full range of motion.

            wrong; you have an inner and outer bicep head, not an upper and lower

              No shit you can still put tension on the lower part of the bicep tho. the same way inclines hit more of the upper chest and declines hit more of the lower chest.

                ^^^^^^
                That's because upper chest and lower chest are two different muscles; anatomically speaking you do not have a "lower bicep"

                  VERY TRUE as this is most controlled by the extention at the bottom. I make my guys flex their tris at the bottom of standing curls and let the weight hang for a half second at the bottom of preachers.

                  Most guys only extend about 70% and keep the lower end of the bicep from receiving any stress. Also using parrillos method of fascia stretching will elongate the fibers giving them a fuller look throughout the entire bicep.

                    Sad to see you have such a distorted view on the sport of cosmetic enhancment. I've taken many that thought like yourself and proved them wrong after reshaping their physique.

                    Like a sculpture you add muscle instead of clay in areas that lack. Take a round shouldered guy and add rear delts and hes no longer round shouldered.

                      ^^^The non science never ends with you.



                      Kasper52: Muscle length is 100% genetic, you can not lengthen the muscle or target the bottom or top end of the bicep.

                        Yup as I was born with this lower back and never had to do a single lower back exercise or deadlift or anything it just appeared out of nowhere.... Any old back exercise would do.......


                        If this were true then we would all have thick insertion christmas tree like seperation. We dont do we???

                          Once again, that is because rear deltoids are their own muscle anatomically speaking, which you can train and develop; "lower bicep", however is not something you can target, just like "inner chest".

                            The thread is about biceps, not the back. Plus you having a back ( if you even do) proves only that you have a back.


                            Please stop giving out comic book 1965 advice that has no basis in fact or science.
