For most lifters, Building muscle is a major goalAnd, if not the main goal, is to work out in the gym. If you want to build muscle, you better know amplification training. Simply put, hypertrophy training focuses on muscle growth, and a strong oversized arm workout deserves a place in the gym rotation (along with leg And the chest enlargement exercises).
Any hypertrophy routine requires three key factors to achieve gains:
- amount: This refers to the total number of sets (and cumulative repetitions) of work a muscle is exposed to in an exercise or across multiple exercises.
- Intensity: Takes the amount of muscle load.
- mechanical tension: This indicates that the muscles spend time under tension during their functional range of motion. Doing so requires looking closely at the work of the muscles within the body and prioritizing exercises that challenge the muscles through as much of their range of motion as possible.
For most lifters with a decent fitness baseline, the best way to achieve the benefits of inflation is to focus on different areas of the body one exercise at a time. Of course, this is known as isolation training. Using isolation training methods to favor one muscle group in a given exercise allows you to spend your entire time in the gym giving that muscle group a serious pump.
When done correctly, and supplemented with a healthy, high-protein diet with a calorie surplus (ie consuming more calories than you burn during exercise), the body will respond by making that muscle group grow. Below, I applied this method to the arms. Read on for the best arm enlargement exercise to add to your workout regimen.
The major arm muscles, the biceps and triceps, each have multiple muscular heads. As their names indicate, the biceps is the biceps muscle and the triceps is the triceps muscle. Because of their anatomy, it is necessary to hit them from multiple angles using different forces and fist variations. This way, you will be able to access a file entire The muscles are all over their heads, rather than just biasing one part of the muscle over and over again. That’s why this exercise includes some serious variety – it promotes the overall growth of both biceps and triceps.
Best arm enlargement exercise
- Perform A1 and A2 as an all-in group for 4 rounds. Rest two minutes between rounds. If chin-ups aren’t too challenging for you, add resistance by wearing a weight belt.
- A 1. Chinup x Max
- A 2. Reps Dip x Max
- Do B1 and B2 as an all-out group for 4 rounds. Rest 90 seconds between rounds.
- B 1. Curl hammer x 10: Hammer curls use a neutral grip instead of the classic, demanding curls. This allows better access to the muscles of the forearm and a deep muscle in the upper arm called the brachialis muscle. Working these muscles can help fill in the circumference of the upper arm.
- B2. Triceps extension with dumbbells x 12: The upper triceps stretch is an old school move that hits the long heads of the triceps. To do this move properly and avoid aggravating the shoulders, hold the dumbbells with the palms flat under the weight and slide forward in your upright seat while keeping your upper back in contact with the backrest. Aim for a deep bend at the elbows by letting the weight pull the triceps into a gentle stretch at the bottom of the movement. It’s okay if your elbows flare out a bit to allow for this.
- Perform C1 and C2 as an all-out group for 3 rounds. Rest for a minute between rounds.
- C1. Biceps straight bar x 10
- C2. Skull crusher EZ-bar x 10
- Finishing: Perform D1 and D2 as an all-out (2 rounds) with no rest between rounds.
- D1. Biceps Resistance Band x 30sec: Use a lighter resistance band so you can achieve high reps on time.
- d 2. Close-grip push-up x 30 seconds
