I have been working out 6 days a week for a few months now. I have never been fat but I used to be kind of slim with a slight beer belly.

My abs are starting to pop now, my shoulders are naturally broad but getting bigger, my legs are ok but my biceps suck s bad. I work my arms 2 days a week with dumbbell workouts. I have no gym anywhere near and only dumbbells. I have searched for various workouts on Youtube and yes they have grown a little, but they seem to have hit a wall and any growth is super slow.

>Any tips on home dumbbell workouts for biceps?

Now when you say you have dumbbells at home what kind of weight are we talking? Just asking because sometimes someone says that and it means they have some 5-10lb dumbells in which case you're probably not going to see a lot of growth.

You might simply need to increase the weight you're lifting or the amount you're eating, probably both. You also might be hurting yourself more by lifting twice a week not giving yourself the proper amount of time between your bicep workouts.

What does your routine look like?

If you don't have heavy enough weights and you don't want to buy more/join a gym I guess you can fashion some by taking a broom handle, attaching trash bags(probably needs to be the strong black ones), fill the trash bags with a few jugs of water on each side and curl that.

I have ajustable dumbbells and the weight is normally from 25-30lbs I would say.

My routine for arm day is usually something like this:
> alternated bicep curls 10 each side x 2reps
> cannot remember what the are called, but both dumbbells in each hand at your side and you raise both up to your chest but you have your knuckles facing outwards, 10 x 4reps
> kneeling 1 arm row 10 x 2 reps each side
> Lateral raies 10 x 4 reps
> Upright rows 10 x 4 reps

Then I do like 5-10 minute ab workout and repeat the arm routine once more after

You probably need to switch it up and do something such as preacher curls or get heavier dumbbells.

you could do hammer curls and, though its harder with dumbells than a barbell, reverse grip curls (overhand grip). But what I think was best for me was pull-ups, especially with an underhand (supine) grip. no big deal if you hit a wall OP, people have different body types n shit. congrats on your work so far

Buy yourself a curl bar OP and do 4 sets of 21s, upping weight each set, but not to the point that you give yourself tennis elbow the next day

sounds tough with no equipment man
if you could use heavier dumbbels you'd probably be good

OP any updates on how your training is going? Have you joined a gym yet? If you haven't you should. Being in the right environment and atmosphere will make it so you get serious with your diet and training.
