    It seems as though anytime that I try to work on my biceps, the only area that is sore is the lower area. Are there any exercises that target the upper area of the broceps?

    there's only 2 heads on the bicep and there's no lower and upper. I'm assuming you are somewhat new to lifting, which is common for most new lifters (the bottom part will stay sore for days)

    Just keep lifting, the whole muscle is getting worked, not just the lower part of it.

    That upper-forearm/lower part of bi part is what usually has to stabilize the weight when doing curls. Naturally, if it's not built up, it's going to be the most sore. Make sure you're getting a full range of motion and DO PREACHER CURLS.

    Come see me in a year when you're ready for anti-gravity curls.

    pullups, BB curls, and DB incline curls are the best bang for your buck as far as it goes for biceps IMO.

    - you can't target the 'upper bicep'
    - lack of soreness does not mean the muscle isnt getting stimulated

    He's probably referring to the short head or the brachioradialis.
