I’m a dad-dude and us dudes like to have a nice set of
OK, I’m sorry I used the word 'dude'…and I’m really sorry I used
But it’s true. All guys
like to have a set of strong arms and to be totally honest ladies love it when their guy has a set of strong
But the ladies don’t get left out of the arms equation because I
don’t think I’ve ever come across a lady who didn’t want sexier, more toned arms.
They wanted to get rid of the jiggle on their underarms…some call
them “bye-bye arms” and I’ve even heard the term “batwing arms”, which doesn’t paint a very pretty
So it’s probably no surprise
that as a trainer I get asked by a lot of guys and ladies for a really great arms
They want to know what my arms workout looks like and I really
can’t blame them.
A weak looking or flabby set of arms doesn’t look very
good. I’m sorry to say that, and I’m sorry if you took offense to
my vanity, but it’s true. Everybody looks, and feels, better when
they have a great looking set of arms so it’s no surprise that everybody wants a great arms
But what does a great arms workout look
Is it filled with nothing but bicep curls and triceps pressdowns
No, no, no a great arms workout does not include lots of those
exercises. They are included, but there are other, more important
exercises that need to be included as well.
Take this arms workout for example. (Click here for an arms workout
Oh, by the way, before I move on I think you should know that the
arms workouts I design for guys and gals don’t differ that much. In
fact most of them are the same, the only difference is the resistance used.
I know that may sound weird, but trust me on this
one. I’ve designed thousands of workouts over my career and not
once have I ever seen a reason to give a lady a different arms workout than a guy. The anatomy isn’t any different so why should the workout be?
Anyway, back to what a
good arms workout looks like.
I always include these types of workouts at the end of a regular
fat loss workout because working the arms is kind of like putting icing on a cake. If the rest of the cake is horrible, then what point is it spending lots of time on
I think that’s a bad analogy but hopefully you get the
So here’s an add-on arms workout I just designed for a guy
client. Remember to do this workout after your regular fat loss
Perform it as a circuit moving from one exercise to the next and
only resting 20 seconds after the third exercise before repeating the circuit 2 or 3 more times for a total
of 3 or 4 sets. (All pictures and descriptions are after the article)
1A) Close Grip DB Chest Press – 12
1B) Close Grip Chin-up – 6-8 reps (Or Substitute
Close Grip Lat Pulldown)
1C) DB Triceps Extension – 15
Here’s another one I just designed for a lady
1) Close Grip
Push-up – 10 reps
2) DB Bicep Curl
– 8 reps
3) DB Triceps
Extension – 8 reps
If you do those 2 add-on arms workouts correctly, use proper form
and a slow tempo your arms should be screaming at you by the time you’re done. And if you include those workouts after your regular workout for a few weeks you’ll
notice a huge difference not only in the way your arms look but in the way they feel and how strong you’ve
Just remember to make sure the weights you use are heavy enough to
make the exercise difficult. If the arms workout calls for 8 reps,
you shouldn’t be able to do 15.
So give one of
workouts a try the next time you do your
10-minute workouts and see
what happens. Who knows in a few short weeks you just may notice
some big changes.
