entire arm, forearm - bi - tri routine. i want to try something new today
thats my favorite part of my arm workout
Not that I count, but:
forearms: reverse grip db raises, hammer curls
biceps: curls (wide and close), stiff-arm p'down
triceps: flies, tricep cable extensions, 1-handed cable extensions
unless you've got some kick ass forearms already, don't neglect forearms
I do forearms when I deadlift and I throw in some hammer or incline curls at the end of my DE day. Perhaps that is why my arms are 15 inches
while we're on the subject of arms, I just measured in at 18 1/4 today
and I'm not showing the rest of my body, cuz I'm getting a little too fat to be comfortable with
You aren't even gonna be able to fight into a firefighting suit
i do squats
The best thing I've done for my arms really is just eating. They used to be 12.5 until I finally started gaining weight
wouold have never guessed that eating makes you grow
you'd be suprised how many things you don't know
does sleep help growth? ive always thought it was just something to kill time
Bi = ALt. Dumbell curls/concentration curls/lying db curls for a nice fulll stretch
tri = close grip bench/skull crushers/weighted dips/kickbacks
forearm = reverse curls/BB reverse and overhand curls
Id try the lying DB curls for biceps, they really squeeze your muscle and give me a great pump. Sit on a bench that is high up enough to let your arms go down pretty far though, otherwise it wont work.
I switch my routine up once a month. I have one day that I focus on Bi's/Tri's. Then on chest day I throw in some exercises for Bi's, and on back day's I hit my tri's.
Dumbell Concentration Curls,
Barbell Curls (easy curl bar)
Low/High Pulley Cable Curl
Close grip bench
V Bar Pushdowns
I don't really work my forearms as I usually get a good workout with them on my back days.
What kind of weight are you putting up on Tate's? I just started doing them and I can only get 45's up. I get a lot of funny looks in the gym, apparently people think I am making up this exercise.
jm press/tate press
overhand ez curls/db curls
ok tough guy.
i believe him, i have similar numbers on jm and tate 55's
Bis (concentration curls, standing BB curls)
Forearms (static bar hangs, wrist rolls)
Grip (crunking, DL 50% and hold)
Tris (JM press, tate press)
When I go heavy on tate presses it kills the outside of my left wrist like it hit a nerve or something. It feels like I might drop the weight. Anyone have that problem?
not sure, probably right below the chest. should i go higher?
Nice, I tried 50's and they were hurting my elbows.
