Long head of the biceps

Biceps brachii means “two headed muscle of the arm” in Latin. The two heads in question are the short and long head, with the latter being located to the outer region of the biceps. The primary role of the biceps is the flexion of the arm.

Typical exercises for targeting the biceps include the barbell curl, EZ curl, and dumbbell curl – all of which isolate the arm flexor muscles effectively, particularly the biceps which are highly active when a supinated (palms up) grip is used.
