If you really want to gain most benefit from our biceps. Try and hit them twice a week. The biceps are a small muscle and can recover rather quickly to try and vary the exercises and work hard. Also make sure to keep form and never perform any exercise randomly. You're aiming to tire the targeted muscle.
