Essential tips and workouts for the growth of your arms!
Bicep Exercises; Main Exercises!
Incline Bicep Curl!
How to do it; sit on an incline bench and hold a dumbbell in each hand at arm’s length. Use your bicep to curl the dumbbell until the you reach your shoulder and then lower very slowly and continue to repeat this for as many sets and reps as you need.
Why do we do this; We do this to help the growth of the muscle known as a bicep, meaning that this one exercise isolates that one muscle group.
How to do it; Sit down on a bench and or seat of your choice, depending on if you are doing this in a gym and or at home, and rest your arm against your right leg, letting the weight hang down. Curl the weight up like you would with a regular curl and then pause, lower and repeat that cycle.
Why; This isolates the arm flexors and hits the lateral head of the bicep. Meaning that the bicep will be appear good and at peak performance!
Twisting Dumbbell Curl!
How to do it; Hold the dumbbell in each hand, with the palms facing each other. Use your bicep to curl the dumbbell to your shoulder, while doing that, twist your palms to your chest when lifting, lower while twisting back to original position, then repeat!
Why; The twist brings your forearms into play alongside your biceps. Instead of isolating one muscle group, two will be working during this exercise.
Barbell Bicep Curl/Leant-Forward EZ Bar Curl!
How to do it; Hold the EZ Bar in front of your thighs and or the barbell, depending on what you are currently using, shoulder-width grip. Lean forward slightly, to ensure no injury. Curl the bar until your hands are at your shoulders. This means your biceps will be squeezing together and then lower while under control, repeat after this.
