While using dumbbells at the peak contraction twist your wrist outward and flex hard hold for a count say 2. What Arnold says.

Preachers have been mentioned as good for peak, but look at Larry Scott's biceps, they are extremely full, but don't have great peak and he practically made the preacher curl famous.

I would have to say genetics is the main factor.

ive always heard/thought that the brachiialis played a big part in biceps peak...im sure genetics is a huge part also..you might be able to help it out a little w/ reverse curls, hammer curls, etc.

no that gives your arms the 3D look which in my opinion is more important than peak

I thought preacher curls worked the bicep most when it is extended, not peaked. IMO the best for peak are ones that have a lot of force pulling against your muscle when it is at full contraction, i.e. the machines, or doing curls on an incline bench.

agreed. I don't like preacher curls because when you get to the top of the motion, you have no more tension.

A preacher machine would work good, which from what i understand is what Larry Scott used anyways..

What me and my partner did is take a band and put it on the handle part of your machine preacher curl and right before the peak yank the band back and keep tension which ensure you are getting good resistance through out the movement.

IMO, the shape of your biceps, including the peak, is determined by your genetics, not your choice in exercises. You can't influence whereabouts muscle is added to the bicep, you can only influence muscle being added.

Biceps peak and shape is determined by the length of the muscle's tendon.

Long tendons means a short biceps with high peak.
Short tendons means a long, more stretched-out biceps with low peak.

These tendon variations have little to no influence on performance, just aesthetics. And since tendon lengths can't be changed through training, biceps peak (and overall shape) is mainly genetics. That doesn't mean we can't add some serious mass to it though

The best work out for optimum is status lose weight. Your hand is insulated throughout the whole rep and it performs best for working on the optimum of your bicep. Preacher waves are excellent but they have a identical impact on your bis as opposite hold, they are actually excellent for thickening. I gives weights waves a try for a couple of several weeks and see how it performs.
