Best Exercises For Building Your Arms 2
Triceps dips are really great for your triceps of course. If you can use a dip bar then do so, but if you don’t have one that’s ok too, you can always use a bench or even a chair. With the support behind you place your palms on it with your fingers facing forward and extend your legs straight out in front of you. To do the exercise simply lower yourself down until your upper arms are parallel to the ground then extend your elbows to raise back up.
Behind The Back Cable Curl
For this exercise you will need a cable resistance machine and a D-handle. Simply stand facing away from the cable machine and hold the handles with your arms lowered by your sides and your palms facing forwards. This exercise is great for your biceps and shoulder because all you have to do it is to do a curl with the cable.
This exercise is very simple to do and is great for your biceps and shoulder muscles. All you have to do is get a bar, put the appropriate amount of weight on it, and curl it with your hands each placed halfway between the center of the bar and the weights.
The Preacher Curl
For this exercise you will need to have access to a preacher’s bench and a short curling bar (you could even use dumbbells, but it is a little more awkward than when using a short curl bar, otherwise known as an EZ-Curl bar). Place your arms on the preacher bench so that your armpits are touching the top of it, then extend your arms until they are flat on the bench and finish the exercise by curling your arm back up. This exercise will work wonders on your biceps.
For this exercise you are going to need a bar that is significantly higher up than your head. Raise your arms and grip the bar tightly with your palms facing inward. Pull yourself up until your chin as at bar level. To avoid doing movements that you shouldn’t be doing, don’t use your momentum to get yourself up; only use your biceps.
The Reverse Curl
Using a weight bar, simply hold the bar with an overhand grip (palms facing down and out) with your arms lowered by your side. To do the exercise just curl the bar upwards as far as you can go and then lower it again.
The Diamond Pushup
The diamond pushup is excellent for your shoulders, upper back muscles, the triceps, and your forearms.
