How can I get bigger biceps

Never been a real show-off type of person, I'm not comfortable with my body. I'm very modest, and just looking at myself in the mirror and seeing improvement would make me feel better.

Hi Noah.
A couple things you need to do.
Hit the gym or the weights in your apartment/house and start light.
Once comfortable, move up to higher weights gradually!
Eat quality proteins and make sure you take a pre-workout and post-workout drink for muscle building and recovery.
Higher reps with light weights are for definition and fat burning.
Medium heavy weights doing 8-12 reps are where most people build more muscle and heavy weights with low repsr build more strength.
Be patient, as everyone progresses at a different rate.
Buy a men's fitness magazine to get some more ideas and perhaps some inspiration
I put Arnold Swatchenager's poster up in my basement (when he had won the Mr. Olympia title in 1980) and this made a big difference for me.
Visualization, ample rest, optimized nutrition, staying hydrated, a workout buddy, perseverance and commitment will all help reach your goals and make you feel better.
You can do it!

I'm 62 and I workout 10-15 hours a week. Treadmill, elliptical machine,
free weights, stationary bike, stair climber, multistation weight machine,
name it!
I'm in better shape than most people I know, even people in their 20's.
But the most important part is that I'm healthy and feel great!
