Biceps are one of those muscles that one can easily show off, and which body builders are so proud of even with their t-shirts on; spectators, especially men, just can’t help themselves and say “I want to get ripped too!” Biceps are also easy to target, with all the available arm muscle building workouts available at hand, since the beginning of dawn. Are you one of those who want to get ripped biceps fast? Then read on and find out the routines that just work for everybody.
Dumbbell or barbell lifts and curls. Dumbbells are for starters, while barbells are for pros. Dumbbells are handy weights of varying masses; barbells on the other hand is a single, long, sturdy rod that carries varying weights that are much more heavier than that of dumbbells. Dumbbells may be carried in just one arm, or both arms carrying the single dumbbell, or both arms carrying two different dumbbells; while barbells are usually carried by both hands, unless you’re a body builder who’s ripped enough to carry such heavy weight. These are basic muscle building equipments, especially for arm workouts. There are an infinite number of exercises you can do on them, but the basic is the stretching out and contracting of the arm muscles while holding the weights up in order to retain its effectiveness.
Bench press. Such equipment as a bench press could only be found in gyms, except of course if you’re that rich to buy yourself one. This is probably where the term “weight lifting” got its name from: the varying weights that you can carry not just with your wrist or hands, but with your whole arm. This is a surefire way of placing the weight on both your triceps and biceps, and not just your wrist and hand. It has also proven itself already to be complete muscle building equipment, since it’s both for the arms and legs, but not just quite for the middle body.
Pushups. The most popular exercise for working out the arms, pushups is the simplest workout that you can do even at home. But simple as it can get, with no apparatus or equipment needed to correctly perform; it also proves to be the most difficult. Just imagine having your own weight being the weight to be lifted by your arms. This may just be the ultimate test of arm muscle strength: if you are able to lift yourself up, then congratulations! It only means your arm muscles are that strong, and your weight is light: all muscle and bones minus the fats!
These are the workouts that you have to perform alternately so as to avoid the arm muscles from getting used to the strength activities. Also don’t forget to give yourself the right and enough amount of body building nutrition, to keep those biceps and triceps getting stronger and bigger.
