Lets bro out here for a bit…whats your favorite arm stuff? Exercises, workouts etc…
Overhead press variations
Haha nice man
Drop sets on curls. Load up the bar with 10’s and just keep repping and removing plates till your arms fall off.
I wanna hear from somebody who always had trouble growing arms, and now has big arms.
Everything else is just mental masturbation
Is there any other kind?
I wouldnt say i have big arms (a smidge over 17 the last time they were measured) but it took a while to get them there cause arms have always been stubborn for me. Getting bigger in general helped a lot, increased frequency helped, doing lots of reverse/hammer grip helped, and curling food to my mouth (really focus on a good contraction there) helped. I do have big joints and wrists (and forearms) so the look of my arms just isnt the same as someone with small joints.
My current arm day consists of:
Alternating DB curls
Preacher Curl Machine (I hate freeweight preacher curls)
Cable Pushdowns with an EZ curl attachment (hate ropes)
Like with everything I use very heavy weight with a top set rep range of 10-15. I only do one working set per exercise and several drop sets after. I do arms every six days, like everything else and on its own dedicated day.
Inb4 thread titled Favorite Butt Stuff
Okay, before recent months I did very little arm work, only enough to keep wrist and elbow problems away but I’ve since put more priority into and I have had okay results granted as little as I was doing before I imagine just about anything would work.
Close Grip Chins
Reverse Grip Drag Curls
I really like the Matt kroc 1000 rep arm workout on here
Are you doing anything for triceps?
I have thought about trying it, but never committed to it yet
Biceps extended set:
Strict curls with back against the wall for 6-10 reps, step forward for 3-5 more reps, then a couple of cheat reps, then one long negative.
Any heavy pressing move supersetted with palms up kickbacks with a pause at the top for a cramp. Kickbacks are best done face down on a high incline bench.
This looks killer! Gonna try these fo sho
Fat grip reverse curls
KB hammer curls
Triceps were very stubborn for me, Scott extensions and this made a big difference…
recently enjoying these…
Kettlebell moves in general suprisingly helpful, hammer curls with them are great…
I don’t usually have an ‘arm day’ however if my body is beat up and I just want a pump or whatever I like to throw this is as a once off. The pump is always crazy
Close(er) Grip Pike Push Ups
Basically this thing that I would describe as a JM press but with my bodyweight. It’s not a diamond push up nor a strict tri. ext.
And my tris get a fair bit of stimulation from the push up varieties and standing presses I do unlike my bis from most back work.
My tris right now are not at their best. I haven’t bench pressed in many many months since I replaced it with push up variations which has given me my best chest development but has led to my tris lagging hence why I’ve got the 2-board CGBP that I go hard on that I added in recently since I had the best tris when I did PL training. The “JM Push Up Press” as I’m calling it is a new addition too. I can’t tell you yet if it’ll be the trick.
That being said my arms are only like 14 inch so take my humble suggestion with a grain of salt
