I am a landscape contractor and the job keeps me away from the gym most of the time. I still train to keep in shape. This is how I train my biceps, I do curls using a porcelain pail. It is not very heavy (unless I fill it with water), but I have to be extra careful to keep my movements correct or I might break it and not be able to sell it. It is basically the same movement as a bicep curl, but I think the concentration to keep the movement correct is what really helps, because I can see the lines and veins coming out. I am not sure if my method is good for making your bicep bigger, but it does makes the lines and veins come out. My veins are even visible when I am relaxed. Comments?

your veins will always be showing regardless of your training as you have little body fat.To train your bicepts you have to train them to failure on near failure completed 8 - 12 repetitions for a few sets. You haven;t realy told us enough about what you are doing.

I was doing standing bicep curls when the picture was taken, and I normally do 12-15 repetitions for about 4-5 sets. I have friends who are skinnier than I am, but their bones are more visible than their veins. My veins were not as visible before I began training. Actually, I have heard that repetitive training with lighter weights brings out the veins. Thanks for the tip on the reps.
