If you have just 10 minutes and want a home biceps workout that will let you build big biceps at home, then this is the video for you. Here I show you a workout for biceps at home that requires just a single resistance band or a pair of heavier dumbbells. No matter which one you choose, you will be able to complete your biceps workout in just 10 minutes and start seeing results fast.
ALL YOU NEED IS A DUMBBELL
The key to this bicep workout is the low barrier of entry regarding the equipment needed. Most of us, even if we don’t have a home gym, have a pair of dumbbells laying around. Furthermore, we often have a single resistance band or are able to purchase one inexpensively at any local sporting goods store. As I said, it doesn’t matter which one you want to use for this workout, they will both get the job done.
That said, let’s start breaking down the lighter biceps band workout.
HIGH REPS / LESS REST
The key to the effectiveness of this home workout for biceps is to take advantage of the hypertrophy stimulus gained from metabolic stress caused by higher repetition, low rest, light load workouts. Each of the biceps exercises included in this home workout are to be performed for 45 seconds, followed by just a short 15 second rest to shake out the burn and then finished off with one more round of the same movement. This is to be repeated a total of 5 times for a total workout duration of 10 minutes.
If at any point you feel as if you can’t complete the reps due to the overwhelming metabolic burn in your arms, simply rest as briefly as possible and get back to cranking out your reps until the time is over.
The exercises, sets and reps in this lighter band home biceps workout are as follows:
LIGHT HOME BICEPS WORKOUT
– No Money Curls – 45 sec on / 15 sec off x 2
– Banded Drag Curl 45 sec on / 15 sec off x 2
– Lip Buster Step Back Curls – 45 sec on / 15 sec off x 2
– Cross Body Hammer Curls – 45 sec on / 15 sec off x 2
– Leaning Stretch Curls – 45 sec on / 15 sec off x 2
If you would rather rely more on eccentric stress and tension as your drivers of muscle growth, then you will definitely want to try out the heavier version of this biceps workout.
LOW REPS / MORE REST
Just like the lighter version, you will be able to do this entire workout for your biceps at home. The best part is, you will only need a single pair of heavier dumbbell to get the job done. By structuring the exercises in a way that the easier moves are saved for when the arms are more fatigued, you will be able to keep going even when you are feeling at your most tired.
That said, the working periods here are going to be 1 minute long. The rest periods however will be longer, one minute each, to allow you to account for the fact that the overall tension is higher and the muscles will need more recovery in between efforts in order to continue to perform at a capable level.
The exercises, sets and reps in this heavier dumbbell home biceps workout are as follows:
HEAVY HOME BICEPS WORKOUT
– “Straight Bar” DB Curls – 1:00 on / 1:00 off
– DB Drag Curls – 1:00 on / 1:00 off
– Alt. DB Curls – 1:00 on / 1:00 off
– DB Cross Body Hammer Curls – 1:00 on / 1:00 off
– DB Waiter’s Curl – 0:45 on / 15 sec off
– DB ISO/ECC Burnout x 1:00
Keep in mind, following your last db waiter’s curl exercise, you will take just a 15 second rest before you finish off your workout with a combination isometric/eccentric biceps hold exercise for 60 seconds. The goal is to try and complete the entire minute without maintaining some level of tension in your biceps in either an isometric or eccentric form. This is tough but something you can do if you put your mind to it.
