As the sizzling summer sun now high in the sky,you got to rip off your sleeves, soak up some sweet rays, and exercise your right to bare arms! Of course, it's more fun to exercise that right if your armaments are more like glistening cannons than shrimpy pistols, and that's where we come in.
1 TRAIN LESS FOR MORE GROWTH
Depending on your program and fitness level, it's possible that over training your arms might be causing more harm than good.
When it comes to building my arms, I embrace the axiom "less is more," which implies that working on something with less frequency can actually—in some cases, such as this—benefit you more.Don't overwork your arms!
2 CHOOSE GOOD FORM OVER HEAVY WEIGHTS
But when the old school isn't working any more my primary advice for biceps exercises is to pick a weight that's challenging but doable in a specific rep range. Usually, this is a weight that allows you to hit every rep in a slow and controlled manner, not in a herky-jerky way.
This mean dropping the weight—and your ego—on dumbbell biceps curls, to ensure quality muscle contraction.
3 TURN DOWN THE VOLUME, UP THE FREQUENCY
Instead of blowing out arms one day per week, add arm exercises to your other upper-body days. This allows you to train my biceps and triceps twice per week each. Train chest with triceps, and back and biceps. Then hit biceps and triceps again for an arm day on its own. But do apply this for more than 4 weeks otherwise you might be over training those babes.
4 TRY THE "GUN RUN" WORKOUT
For sculp a "gun run," is just as much fun and work as it sounds. It entails training biceps and triceps with dropsets—a technique in which you hit failure, immediately drop to a lighter weight, and then rep to failure again—to create a full round, and aesthetically pleasing look. #bodypal #fit #fitness #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessfreak #gymmotivation #gymaddict #gymlife #fitlife #gympartner #beachbody #summerbody #eatclean #healthychoices #muscles #workout #biglou #shredded #fatloss #weightloss #crossfit #bodybuilding #recovery #nutrition #diettips #gymtips #trainhard #eatclean #bodytransformation #bodygoals
