Muscles in the "Bicep proper"
The bicep is, in fact, two different muscles: Biceps Bracii Long head, and Short head. These two muscles work together to flex, and supine the forearm.
Equipment good for working the bicep.
Machine Bicep Curl.

Biceps are the muscle in your forearms that make the little "hill" when squeezed. The biceps are attached to your arms via tendons. These tendons connect to your shoulder joints.
Most muscles on the arms are located on the forearms which is the upper part of the arm. This is where most exercises target, as your forearms contain your biceps.
Exercises with Biceps
Your arms are appendages that extend out and in to accommodate your hand's needs
by John Jarvis
Dumbbells are hand-held weights used to work your biceps. Typically used in weight training, dumbbells target your arm muscles to "curl" the weight.
Machine Bicep Curl
These machines target your biceps perfectly. Allowing you to develop them at the rate you want
Preacher Curl Machine
These machines allow you to perform the "preacher curl" exercise.
Sit down on the Preacher Curl Machine and select the weight.
Place the back of your upper arms (your triceps) on the preacher pad provided and grab the handles using an underhand grip (palms facing up). Tip: Make sure that when you place the arms on the pad you keep the elbows in. This will be your starting position.
Now lift the handles as you exhale and you contract the biceps. At the top of the position make sure that you hold the contraction for a second. Tip: Only the forearms should move. The upper arms should remain stationary and on the pad at all times.
Lower the handles slowly back to the starting position as you inhale.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
a 'curling' motion, where a weight is lifted up until the forearms are vertical with the elbows and upper arm remaining close to the body.
Adjust the seat to the appropriate height and make your weight selection. Place your upper arms against the pads and grasp the handles. This will be your starting position.
Perform the movement by flexing the elbow, pulling your lower arm towards your upper arm.
Pause at the top of the movement, and then slowly return the weight to the starting position.
Avoid returning the weight all the way to the stops until the set is complete to keep tension on the muscles being worked.
