Perception is everything when you’re talking about aesthetics and body composition, especially with biceps and triceps. There are guys with good measurables but their arms look small and kind of pathetic next to a smaller guy with better bicep peak.
Behavior Dictates Results
Arm Day, today! But what does that mean? People that plateau, or struggle to add impressive peak to their biceps, are often stuck in a gym loop of “going through the motions”.
You pick up a bar, do some curls and expect to grow.
If you’ve been lifting weights for a while it means the low hanging fruit, the easy gains, are gone. Already achieved. Remember that month you gained half an inch on your arms? You weren’t even trying that hard, right? You just moved heavy weight and your arms exploded.
That won’t happen anymore.
Your body is acclimated, adjusted and well adapted to what you’re doing in a gym. To grow, to truly shape your biceps, you need specific behavior designed for that specific goal.
Your Ego Can Inhibit Progress
Biceps are a relatively small muscle group. They’re not designed to be a major workhorse. Can you move 135 lbs on a barbell and pump out some funky curls where you’re rocking like a madman?
Yeah. Does it look impressive to move that much weight? Yeah.
But it doesn’t help add peak. If that’s the goal, to get a small mountain on your arm, you’ll likely need to lower the weight and focus on good reps in the 10-12 range.
It’s not about weight, it’s about execution.
