Let's face it, most guys who start lifting want two things - a big bench and big arms. So in this issue we're going to talk about bi's and tri's and I'll share a very effective routine for adding inches to your arms in a very short amount of time.
Everyone wants big arms and it seems as if no one is satisfied with their current arm size. This seems rather strange, since most people constantly blast their arms. There are a few reasons that people don't make progress they want when it comes to packing on inches to their arms.
First, they don't work big muscles of body hard enough. Your arms just aren't going to grow if your big muscles, like your back and legs, aren't growing. You need to work your legs and back hard and concentrate on upping your poundages for these body parts, if you want your arms to grow. Your arms will only get so big without rest of your larger muscles getting big as well.
Secondly, a lot of people focus on working their biceps, when in fact triceps make up almost 70% of size of your upper arm. If you want to build big arms, focus on your triceps not your biceps.
And third, most people overtrain their arms. They do as many or more sets for their arms, and do those sets harder, than they do for their back, chest or legs. And on top of that, most exercises for back and chest also work bi's and tri's very hard. You have to cut back on work you do for you arms and up intensity. Quality, not quantity.
