Arm Workouts – 3 Killer Workouts

No matter what season is approaching one of the sexiest body parts on both men and women is definitely toned arms. Something about the biceps or toned arms that really show through a t-shirt or sweater!

This article is strictly about 3 killer arm workouts which will get you those arms that you’ve always wanted and who knows, maybe they’ll also help you excel in any sport you take part in!

Remember when it comes to reps and sets there are two main categories you should aim to vary in your workout routine:

High reps with lighter weights is great for toning and bring out definition in those muscles. High reps range in the 12-14 area. In this category 3-4 sets is a great number to hit with little rest between sets, generally less than 60 seconds.

Lower reps with heavier weights is great for adding muscle size and strength. Lower reps range in the 6-10 area. In this category 2-3 sets is a great number to hit with a good rest between sets, generally about 60 seconds.

    • Hey Scott, my sincere apologies on that, Google provided us with the image so we weren’t aware that it was in reference to you. Great job though buddy, just saw your website and youtube channel and they are both killer! We are very impressed and have added a link to your youtube in the article. Let me know if there is anything else we can do! :)

  2. Great workouts, how much protein do you think would be good to have each day to get these big guns?

    Reply
    • Hi Bobby, aim for one or two protein shakes a day (using one scoop each). That should be quite enough protein if you are also eating lots of lean meats and dairy products.
