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!!!

Overhead Cable Curl

To begin, set a weight that is comfortable on each side of the pulley machine. Note: Make sure that the amount of weight selected is the same on each side.

Now adjust the height of the pulleys on each side and make sure that they are positioned at a height higher than that of your shoulders.
Stand in the middle of both sides and use an underhand grip (palms facing towards the ceiling) to grab each handle. Your arms should be fully extended and parallel to the floor with your feet positioned shoulder width apart from each other. Your body should be evenly aligned the handles. This is the starting position.

While exhaling, slowly squeeze the biceps on each side until your forearms and biceps touch.
While inhaling, move your forearms back to the starting position. Note: Your entire body is stationary during this exercise except for the forearms.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions prescribed in your program.
Variations: This exercise can also be performed using one handle at a time.
