Body Building | Forearms

I am lacking in bicep size compared to my forearms.I have hit the biceps fairly hard but still have not acheived much gain in size. Should I up the weight and go to failure on the biceps as well as doing negative excercises? Any help is appreciated.

Actually that looks like a burn out for your biceps. Dont do it, it will be a waste of time.

I've never been a big fan of negatives. Instead try this technique:

Weight-Stripping: Load the easy-curl bar with small plates (like 3 10's and 4 5's per side) and do preacher curls. Every time you reach failure, have a spotter "strip" one plate off each side. Continue this until the bar is "stripped" of all weight.

You're welcomed to try my bicep routine; here's the link to my site's arm exercise page:
