If your usual arm exercises just aren't cutting it, then it's time to add some effective exercise variations. Here are 10 you have to try to build freaky arms!
We all love training arms, but many of us don't get the growth response we want because we're stuck doing the same old thing week after week. Unfortunately, the body adapts to any tired, dusty, lackluster approach, and your gains may suffer as a result. Don't let your arms go limp!
You don't necessarily need to do anything fancy in order to build bigger biceps and triceps, but it is in your best interest to add variation to your arm-training regimen.
These 10 variations on classic lifts can bring your arms to that next level. They're nothing totally new or advanced, but if you want bigger, better arms, these variations belong in your training protocol!
There's no right or wrong way to implement these variations into your program. If you like training your arms on a separate day, hit each of these exercises to failure. You don't need to do a ton of sets! Three sets of each exercise would be plenty.
If you like to train your arms as part of your upper-body workouts, pull out the biceps exercises and pair them with your back workouts, and add the triceps movements to your chest and shoulder day.
However you choose to use these variations, remember to focus on quality over quantity. Keep your elbows pinned to your sides and concentrate on the muscle that should be moving the weight—your arms!
