    Biceps sinking inwards

    Does anyone else have this problem where your biceps are falling inwards toward your body? Kinda like they're tipping over. My bi's aren't big yet, but I see that they are a leaning in. When i flex my bi's, if I look at them in the mirror, I don't see much of a "hump", but when I look down, there's a nice sized ball hiding behind my tri's in a way. Anyone know why this would be? Could it be that my tri's are far ahead of my bi's therefore overshadowing my them? Or what can it be?

    Do you mean that your biceps sorta lean inwards when you tense, eg if you tense and then have your elbows pointing directly infront of you can you see a your bis pointing inwards on the inside of your arm. If so then yes, thats how my bis go, they just seem to get biggetr in that way and never peak.

    I may be wrong, but work the outer side of the muscle. a lot of barbell grips are lifted by elbows pointed out and you curl in. try lifting using more of the out side of the biceps and see if that would even them out...i could be wrong but it's not like you're hurting anything to try it. better than looking like a gymp

    Well, I'm just getting back into the gym. I'm hoping that when my bi's get a little bigger, they'll get back to normal.

    Jezmason, when I hold my arms straight out with my palms facing each other, my bi's are diagnal a little, as if you were to draw a line from my bis upwards (from the top of my bi's), the 2 lines would meet each other. I don't know if that made sense, but that was the only way I could describe it. Now, when I flex my bi's a nice ball is formed, but 2/3rds of it is hiding behind my tri's facing one another.

    And Timastyle, yeah it seems like my biceps are a little inward too. Doesn't bother me though.
