Bicep stretch isn’t as easy as it sounds. We have to meet all anatomical stretch functions to do so. But usually the biceps doesn’t tend to shortening what makes its stretching much less necessary.
Biceps stretches are a little tricky to perform and it is not that easy to achieve a decent stretch tension. We start by stretching the elbow joint maximally. Now rotate the forearm until the back of your hand points upward. Raise your arm across the side toward the back until you feel a stretch tension in your biceps.
Most people need a partner that lifts the arm in the described way. But you could also hold on to a wall, a door frame, a machine at the gym, or similar. In that position you could slowly bend your knees until you feel a stretch tension in your biceps.
