Training Biceps Long Head

Training Biceps Long Head


Do you know how to train the long head of your biceps?



The long head of the Biceps crosses the front of the shoulder joint and is stretched out in shoulder extension. So, if we start an exercise with our shoulder in extension, the long head of the Biceps will be in a lengthened position. When a muscle is in a lengthened position, it must work harder to contract fully.


This is important because the long head and the short head both flex the elbow. Thus, when the elbow is flexed while the shoulder is in extension, the long head must work even harder to contract. As a result, the long head is doing the majority of the work and being targeted!


Here is a video of our favorite bicep curl to target the long head of the Biceps: Incline DB curls.
