Grab a partner and give this growth-inducing triceps exercise a shot.
The lowering phase of the curl is where a lot of the muscle damage, and thus growth, is created. Don't just drop the bar.
Start your biceps work with hammer curls, then a preacher curl variation like the one here. For safety, finish with heavy barbell curls when you're biceps are fully pumped.

For complete development, don't forget the front of the calves.
For greater range of motion in the contracted position, try a cambered bar.
