Small Arms

You may be a person that lifts on a regular basis and wonder why your arms haven’t really sprouted into nice big tree trunks. Here is my quick once over that could help you keep up in the arms race.

Bad Form

If you have been working out for a decent length of time and you are not seeing any improvements I bet your form is bad. Why do I jump to that conclusion? Because I have seen it first hand at the gym. many people show up and grasp the fixed barbel at 60 or 70 pounds walk to an open area and try to curl it. Sure they may get it up but their form is horrible they are rocking to get it up and it and just struggle. I have even seen guys pack weight on and try to preacher curl and their ass comes off the seat to counter their weight to get it up. By compromising form and in this case actually working the muscle you are not getting anywhere and are working the muscle like you should. By fixing your form your biceps should grow ten fold to what they are doing now.

My advice if you notice this is your problem is take the same weight you openly just curl walk over to the wall lean up against it and try to curl it. The wall will make sure you are not rocking and help make sure your arms do all the work. I watch guys stare at me as I do this and curl way more than they can rocking (which I don’t always do weight wise). I have read multiple articles of pro lifters that don’t even curl higher than 35-40 to make sure their form is on point. This shows how precise the form for your arms needs to be. Also stop following form off any old work out video a lot of the pros rocking are preloading or like a warm up set where they go real heavy before their work out. Some may even just be showing off and just some Youtube muscle head that doesn’t know better. (do your research)


So the label may be off on this section but something you need to know about muscle growth on your arms is that it requires your other muscles to do so. I am not totally sure the science behind it but in one of the various magazines piled up in the corner I have is an article talking about getting big arms. In this article the lifter talks about how you need to grow every other main muscle group to grow big arms, By doing so your arms will follow. So by putting in the time on your entire body and not just trying to make some nice eye candy for the ladies you can build a physic you can be proud of.
