    Easy way to check if your form is off or if the weight is too heavy is simply reduce the weight and see if the bicep responds better to a lighter approach.
    Also be concious of your grip while curling a firm grip is desired not a death hold.

    Try moves that isolate the biceps like preacher curls or concentration curls, also check your form it might be off
