How I Got Bigger Biceps In 30 Days – For years people have been hitting the weights to build muscles, and lots of people seem to focus specifically on bigger arms. It’s seems a lot of guys spend all of their gym time working on that one part of the body, with many people pretty much leaving their bottom half alone.
Why the biceps are so important we don’t know, but if you want that action-hero look you are going to have to have a pair of fine, muscular arms. So today we will tell you how to get that Terminator look, and how to get it fast. First of all, we don’t advise that you work out only this one part of your body.
Just add this to your routine each day, and even if you take a day off it’s ok to keep with the bicep training. We advise that you stretch after exercising and eat plenty of healthy protein-rich foods. We also recommend that you don’t go heavy every day. You don’t have to go all out, but you should try to get the perfect technique.
We’ll start with the one you all know, or at least have seen.
Cross Body Hammer Curl. You will do three sets in total, and each set will consist of eight reps for each arm. Ok, how do you do it?Choose a weight which you think you can manage for the three sets. We suggest you start lighter and build up. It’s good to warm up the muscle, but at some point we want you to struggle somewhat.
We don’t want you to take it too easy, but nor do we want you to try lift something so heavy your technique is awful. This goes for every exercise we will talk about today. Stand with your back straight holding the dumbbells in each hand. Your palms should be facing in. So far so good. Now you are going to lift one of your arms towards your opposite shoulder without twisting the dumbbell.
It’s just straight up, but across the body, so if you have the weight in your right hand you will be lifting it towards your left shoulder, hence the name “cross body. ”As you lift slowly exhale, and hold the weight at the upper most part of the movement fora very short time. You then slowly lower the dumbbell down to where you started. Keep your breathing and movement stable, no erratic jerks. Do the same for the other arm and finish the sets.
Barbell Curl You will do 2 sets, but each set will consist of 5 repetitions. Yep, that won’t be easy. Again, start light and move up. To start stand up straight, no slouching. Hold the barbell with your hands at shoulder length. Your elbows should be quite close to your body right now. You are going to bring the weight closer to your body,
but what’s important here is how you move. It should really only be your forearms that are moving. When you get to the top part of the movement hold it for just a second and squeeze your biceps. This is going to burn at some point, but that’s all good. Bring the bar down slowly, keeping this sturdy technique. Keep doing that until you have completed the sets.
Dumbbell Floor Press You will do three sets and each set will consist of ten repetitions. You might not have heard of this one so listen carefully. Grab hold of some dumbbells and lie down with your back on the floor. It’s not cheating to bend your knees. Hold those weights right above your head so your elbows are locked.
Now you must lower the weights until your elbows reach the floor. It’s up to you, but if you tuck in your arms it will affect the triceps more. If your arms are more to the side this will get your chest. When you push them up the weights should meet at the top.
Dips – Triceps Version We know we are talking about biceps, but you will need to do this kind of exercise too if you want to look like Popeye. You will do two sets and 5 repetitions. What you’ll need is a pair of bars to do your dips on. The problem with this for some people is that they struggle to do even one, and we are trying to do lots of them.
Do not fear, because many gyms will have an assist machine that helps push you up. If you can’t find one, you can get a friend to partly assist you. If that’s out of the question, just do what you can. If you can’t even do one, maybe do the dips on a bench. Start with your arms locked and straight and then slowly lower yourself down.
Inhale while you are doing this. You should go so low that there is a 90 degree angle between the upper arm and forearm. When you push back up, exhale. Try and keep your back straight and your elbows close to your body.
Superset: On the last day of this workout you are going to do two exercises for your arms. The first of these is called a Cable Hammer Curl. You will do 4 sets with 20 repetitions each time. You will need a machine for this, but most gyms nowadays have these machines. The machine should have a pulley system, and you will attach a rope to the bottom pulley.
This is so you can pull up a weight with your biceps. Stand about one foot away from the machine and keep your back straight. Your double rope will be held with two hands with your palms faced inwards. Each hand on one rope. Your elbows should be tucked into your sides for this exercise and only your forearms should move.
If you start wildly moving about you are definitely doing it wrong. Next, pull your arms up as you exhale. When you get to the top hold for a second and squeeze those now bulging biceps. Now slowly inhale as you carefully lower the ropes to where you started. Remember, this is not about speed, but technique.
Those guys in the gym going as fast as they can and moving all over the place are doing it wrong. When you bring weights down slowly you are working the muscle more. The second part of this superset is called the triceps pull down and you will also need a machine with a pulley for this, except you are now pulling down rather than pulling up.
You will also do 4 sets and each set will have 20 repetitions. To do this you will attach a double rope to the pulley, also one of those ropes you can pull apart into a V shape. This time you will stand almost straight but it’s good if you stand slightly inclined leaning towards the machine. After this you will slowly bring the rope down so your hands are going down to your thighs.
When you get down to the bottom the top part of your arms should be right up against your body, but the hands should have spread apart so that rope makes a V. Still keep your hands close to your body. It’s only your forearms that should really move. Exhale as you go down and inhale when you go back up. Don’t rush the exercise.
You might also find a V-shaped bar in the gym and this works just as well as the rope. So, there you go. Do these five days and repeat until you hit 30 days and you will certainly see the difference. There are of course lots and lots of variations of bicep and triceps workouts, but these exercises cover everything. It’s all you really need to create those bulging arms. Now all you have to do is try it and come back later and tell us what changes you saw. For now, maybe you can tell us what you think about this in the comments and if you have any alternative workouts you want to add.
