When summer is around the corner, everyone wants to workout and get a killer body. For men, it is about getting size and definition.

There are a few variations of this exercise that you can do to build strength and size in your biceps.
Standing bicep curl.
Stand with dumbbells in both hands and then curl the dumbbells until your muscle contracts. It is important that tension is kept on the muscle at all times. When bringing the weight down, keep the tension on the muscle. This will incorporate your tricep muscle as well.
