Change your bicep routine around more than main muscle groups

Change your grip around often to

Blast the biceps with 21s every 4 weeks :thumbup1:

I only do 2 exersizes, 2 sets for biceps and the end of back and they grow

IMO if a muscle is lagging behind then prioritise it - training chest then tris, or back then bis will always fatigue the arms during the chest/back exercises (deplete local phosphocreatine and ATP levels) without properly stimulating them (since the training is indirect) so when you come to hitting them afterwards you can't put as much into training them directly or stimulating them as well as you were able to hit your fresh chest and back.

So, to bring arms up I'd always say to train them seperately.
