What is a bicep finisher?
Curl up with both arms, working to maintain that perpendicular-to-the-ground upper arm position. Squeeze, then lower the weight down halfway, with your elbows locked at a 90-degree angle. Do 1 slow turnover-and-back, then shift to hammer curl position (weights parallel) and descend.

Why are the bicep muscles called bi CEPS?

Can a full contraction of the Biceps flex the shoulder?
When you get a full contraction of the biceps, it can also flex the shoulder because it crosses the shoulder. Some exercises can actually work all three functions: elbow supination, elbow flexion and shoulder flexion. There are some that can put all these functions in proper alignment with each other so the line of pull is optimal.
