Big Arms Workout

For those who train for looks, building big arm muscles is one of the most common goals in the gym—but no matter your goals or objective, your arm muscles should be an essential focus at some point in your workout split.

Your arm muscles—namely the biceps, triceps, and forearms—are essential for many daily movements, from gym staples like pushing, pulling, and pressing to everyday tasks like hauling your groceries or picking up your kids up to carry them.

Can You Target Only Arm Muscles?

Training your arm muscles isn’t super complicated. You can target your biceps, the crown jewel of the arm muscles, or the triceps, the largest arm muscle on the backside of the limb—or you can really dial down for focused training on less-commonly appreciated muscles like the forearms.

The following arm exercises will help you build up all those muscles. You need to warm up before you start because otherwise, you’ll increase your risk of injury and find the first few sets of your session unnecessarily tough.

Findyourgym.ae can help you find the best gyms in Dubai for targeting your arm muscles.

Triceps Exercises

As the name suggests, the triceps have three different heads: the long head, lateral head, and medial head. These heads contract during triceps exercises, but some moves emphasize different parts of the triceps. The best way to build strong, firm triceps is to choose the exercises that hit all those muscle fibers from every angle.

For more details about the triceps exercises, please check out our article, “Best Triceps exercises“.

Biceps Exercises

The biceps are small muscles, but to grow them takes time, knowledge, and intelligent programming. Also, your biceps flex your elbow — which is a pretty important job when you think about it.

Chin Up

Hold a chin-up bar using an underhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart. Brace your core, pull yourself up until your chin is higher than the bar, keeping your elbows tucked into your body. Lower until your arms are straight again.
