​The guns, the cannons, the pythons, there are so many names for your arms when you work out. Everyone I know has enjoyed doing an arms workout at some point in time, it’s satisfying to see your arms grow and to feel stronger. The people who tend to work the arms the most are those who do split body part routines such as working one or two body parts a day or if you’re consumed for time, three days a week working something like chest and back on the same day. If your just looking for a couple of exercises that would be worth your time to work the biceps and triceps in a hurry and still get some bang for your buck, check out the exercises below.

 

Do all exercises for 3 sets for 10-12 repetitions.

Biceps

Standing neutral grip bicep curls

How to do it: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, hold the dumbbells at your sides with your elbows close to your body, curl up, and then down keeping strict form.

 

 

Incline dumbbell curls

 

How to do it: Lie back on an inclined bench keeping your back flat on the bench, hold the dumbbells at your sides, curl up with as little shoulder movement as possible (Ideally you want none) and then bring the dumbbells back to the starting position.

 

Triceps:

Dips

 

How to do them: Mount a shoulder width dip bar, have your shoulders above your hands, keep your hips straight, lower yourself until you feel a slight stretch on your shoulders, push up and repeat.

 

Single arm overhead extensions

 

How to do them: Sit on your seat with the dumbbell positioned just over your head, lower the dumbbell behind your head or shoulder while maintaining arms vertical position, press up and repeat

 

It's a simple, no frills routine that will get you what you need. So until next time,

​I'm just going to put up a disclaimer before I go on. If you are pregnant and are looking to become physically active while pregnant please get a doctors medical clearance before doing so.

When you walk into a gym to go do your workout you may not be thinking about mental health. In fact most people might not even give it a second thought when lifting, running, texting on the bench, or having their music blaring at unhealthy levels.

One of my favorite styles of training out of all the ones I know has to be maximum strength training. It’s a lot of fun, you lift heavy weights (with proper form!), and you can see some big strength increases from it in less than 5 training sessions.  How you might ask?
