When you try to get bigger arms there is a couple of things you need to know. The biceps muscle only makes up about 1/3 of your arms –the triceps and deltoids (shoulder muscles) make up the other 2/3. Your arms actually consist of 3 different muscles: The biceps brachii, brachialis, and brachioradialis. If you are looking to tone your biceps to the max, it’s essential that you focus on all 3 parts of the “biceps,” as well as your triceps and deltoid muscle groups.
Due to the nature of the biceps muscles, for all exercises it’s 100% critical that your form in lifting is spot on. Raise the weight for 2 seconds going up and lower the weight for a full 2 seconds going down. Correct form will help accelerate your muscle growth phenomenally.
1. Biceps brachii – two muscles at the front upper arm that run from the elbow to the shoulders.
2. Triceps brachii – three muscles at the rear upper arm that run from the elbow to the shoulder.
3. Forearm – several smaller muscles that run from the elbow to the wrist.
You can pretty much achieve the results you want with, seven classic exercises that will allow beginners to get off to a good muscle building start without overstraining their bodies. If your starting out and doing any of these exercises, make sure you use a weight that is light enough to allow between 10-15 reps.
