Bicep workout for mass

There are many different ways that you can stimulate the biceps, direct/indirect and both.
You can use several different techniques to stimulate the muscle as well: negatives, super-sets, rest-pause, 21's, and super slow training just to name a few
The Bicep workout is a mussel on the upper arm that acts to flex the elbow. It is given the name biceps because it has two heads, and workout comes from the Latin word for arm.The tendon of the long head passes into the joint capsule at the head of the humerus, and attaches on the scapula at the supraglenoid tubercle.  The short head of the biceps attaches to the corridor process of the scapula. 
So, biceps attaches to the radial tuberose, and because this bone can rotate, the biceps also supinates the forearm.
There are many different ways that you can stimulate the biceps, direct/indirect and both. You can use just about anything in the gym to stimulate the muscle (barbell, dumbbell, cables, tubing, bodyweight).
However, the best single exercise to put some serious mass on your biceps is the straight bar curl. If mass is what you are looking for then you definitely need to add the straight bar curl to your workout (preferably in the beginning when you have the most energy).
