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!!!

Cable Hammer Curls – Rope Attachment

 

Attach a rope attachment to a low pulley and stand facing the machine about 12 inches away from it.
Grasp the rope with a neutral (palms-in) grip and stand straight up keeping the natural arch of the back and your torso stationary.
Put your elbows in by your side and keep them there stationary during the entire movement. Tip: Only the forearms should move; not your upper arms. This will be your starting position.
Using your biceps, pull your arms up as you exhale until your biceps touch your forearms. Tip: Remember to keep the elbows in and your upper arms stationary.
After a 1 second contraction where you squeeze your biceps, slowly start to bring the weight back to the original position.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
