SUN’S OUT, GUN’S OUT: Arm Workout

SUN’S OUT, GUN’S OUT: Arm Workout

While arms were voted the sexiest body part of a man in a 2016 poll with GQ, more men continue to focus on their chest more. Of course, we want you to be properly proportioned, however, you may not want to have bigger boobs than she does. I will say that my arm routine is pretty ridiculous and it involves some serious soreness later in the evening. We will eventually go into my personal workout but for the time being, let's go with 5 of my favorite bicep exercises.

My friends over at bodybuilding.com helped me with some descriptions so that you can not only build some of the biggest biceps in your family but make some heads turn when you put on your favorite t-shirt.

If you haven't been active in the gym, start off slow. This isn’t going to happen overnight. Pay attention to form and squeezing your muscles and take less concern to the amount of weight you are lifting. You will be surprised by the intensity that a 25-pound dumbell can provide when you are really honing in on your technique and not just lifting for power and pride.

Next issue we will focus on triceps. A well-developed tricep is where the mass in your arm will lay. As always, consult a physician and make sure you are able to work out at full extent. Let’s Go!!!

Barbell Curls:

Stand up with your torso upright while holding a barbell at a shoulder-width grip. The palm of your hands should be facing forward and the elbows should be close to the torso. This will be your starting position. While holding the upper arms stationary, curl the weights forward while contracting the biceps as you breathe out.

Tip: Only the forearms should move.
Continue the movement until your biceps are fully contracted and the bar is at shoulder level. Hold the contracted position for a second and squeeze the biceps hard.
Slowly begin to bring the bar back to starting position as your breathe in.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
