One of the main questions and comments I get from guys is that they want a killer arms
workout, but that it not take up much of their overall workout time, or add unnecessary time to the
I get that. I'm the same way. I'm always tweaking my workouts to put a little more emphasis
on my "beach muscles" and am constantly looking for ways to do it without adding a ton of time to the workout
program itself - I'm a busy fella just like you. I have a busy business, a family life and I just don't want
to spend hours devoted to a workout program, ya know?
One of the best ways I've found to work your arms, without adding a ton of time to the overall workout, is to
use "Add-On" workouts. All that means is that the rest of the workout is a big, full-body workout, and then
if there's time left over, and I have energy left in the tank, I'll go on to a quick 5-10 minute mini-workout
designed just for the arms that is meant to give me a nice pump and develop stronger and more defined
It's NOT a bodybuilder workout and
it's nothing you'll find in a magazine. This is something meant for the real world - something designed for us busy dads who need something that works, works damn well and won't take up all
our remaining free time.
Here's a quick video demonstrating a simple
arms workout that uses some pretty unique and "different" exercises:
Arms Workout To Get Stronger and More Defined
Pretty cool, right?
If you didn't get a chance to write that arms
workout down, here's the rundown:
1A) 1 1/2 Push-up - 6 reps
1B) 1 1/2 Bicep Curl - 8 reps
1C) 1 1/2 Shoulder Press - 8 reps
Do that mini-circuit as many times possible in 5-8 minutes, or go through it for 3 total sets and don't let the
low reps fool you and don't let your ego get in the way.
Those half-reps are a killer and sneaky. They start out feeling pretty simple, but by the time
you get to the third rep, your arms will be burning and starting to shake and wobble. When I do that
workout, I tend to use a resistance I normally do for 12 reps - so if I normally use 45 pounds for DB Shoulder
Presses at 12 reps, I'll use that weight for 8 reps of the 1 1/2 press and may even go down from there
depending upon the rest of the workout.
Like I said, don't let your ego get in the way because this short arms workout is a killer, but it's a killer
in a good way. It'll give you the joyful pump and help give you stronger and more defined arms in no
One more quick note before I sign off - if you can't do all 6 of the 1 1/2 push-ups from your toes, then stop
early. I don't want you dropping to your knees to finish those up because I don't see the point.
So if your body wants to give out after 4 reps of those bad boys, that's fine. Don't squeeze the
remaining 2 out from your knees.
Awesome. Now rock on with your bad self and get to work on this arms workout and developing
stronger and more defined arms!
