I donno how I feel about this but if I don't work my biceps out they don't look as big.
Any truth to this?
Yes and no.
If you have your routine together, and have a solid back work out, no, bicep exercises wouldn't be 'needed'. Deadlifts, pull up variations, rows, pull downs, various kettle bell movements, etc provide quite a bit of stimulation [giggity] to the biceps, which are extremely small BTW.
Despite this I still like to isolate them if for no other reason than self satisfaction. There are 2 specific curls that I do, however, that I do feel are helpful.
Reverse grip curls, I use an ez bar with fixed weight, hands over the top, curl with strict form.
As far as reps, with biceps I do real low reps high weight, They get trained well on back days so if I'm trying to gain anything by isolating them it's just mass.
