Those doing calisthenics generally do pullups, chinups and muscle ups for their back and arm workout. If this is all that you do, the biceps will never receive the care and overload necessary. From an injury prevention and performance perspective, isolating the biceps is important for the calisthenics athlete. Stronger biceps will decrease injury risk to the shoulder and elbow. Bigger biceps will have a carry over to stronger pull ups and chin ups, and will contribute more to the exercise.

This video will be covering bicep curl form, technique and the best bicep workout frequency for the calisthenics athlete. This includes the alternating dumbbell curl and the spider curl using an incline bench.The video also covers some bodyweight isolation bicep exercises using gymnastic rings.
