Actually it comes from your core/hips.

Hammer curls work forearms. But suspension type lifts like Deadlifts, Shrugs, Farmers Walk are vastly superior.

Strong biceps are nessciary for physical safety. If you have weak biceps, that leaves a weak point that could leave you open for injury.

Don't be a bicep warrior, but hit 'em good with BB , DB, and hammer curls.

Provided you can curl more than the other person can pull on your arm with their back/core and they can yank all day and you can just lay there and fight until you get tired.

I dare you to ditch all those BB, DB, and hammer curls and throw in some chin ups, tell me if you notice a difference! Chins > curls any day. Only throw in curls if you still have energy and have finished the rest of your pulling movements

I have nowhere to do chins. How many chin ups are you doing? bw or weighted?

A bigger biceps increases the mass of your arm which mean you your punches will have a bigger impact.

Am I right?

I mix it up with chins. I like pull ups better but usually I'll do like 3x5 pull ups and 3x5 chin ups. I just started adding weight to them as well

Boxers have big arms. SO what if you have hip rotation and big arms? You cant tell me thats only equal to hip rotation and small arms.
