Biceps Short Head:
The biceps short head originates from the coracoid process of the scapula and inserts on the radial tuberosity. Its main functions are to flex the elbow and supinate the forearm.

The EZ-bar curl is an isolation movement used to build mass in the biceps.
Next up for you to learn is the amount of sets and rep ranges that will allow you to build maximal muscle mass in the biceps.
