I was at the gym earlier this week doing my arm workout and I noticed how flabby my arms have gotten recently. Things aren’t sitting the way they used to when I was a teenager and I’m slowly coming to the realization that I have to work 130% to get the same results that I used to get a couple of years ago.
It’s a little concerning for me due to the fact that when I put on weight I normally put it on around my tummy and butt. I haven’t really put on weight on my upper body nor my arms UNTIL NOW.
Today’s post has been inspired by my arms. I am going to share with you the exercises I do so I can have amazing arms by summer 🙂
I do standing bicep curls with a dumbell in each hand. My current weight is 4kg per arm. I do 3 sets of 12 reps with full motion/full extension from my hips to my shoulders. In between my full motion sets, I do 2 sets of 6 reps of mid-range curls (half reps to my belly button instead of full extension to my shoulders).
I do standing tricep extensions and tricep kickbacks. For standing tricep extensions I do 3 sets of 12 reps with a 9kg barbell. For tricep kickbacks I do 3 sets of 12 reps with 4kg barbells.
I do 3 sets of 12 reps of lateral raises with 4kg barbells.
That’s all I do for arms at the moment. I’ll be incorporating and changing up my workout to create variety and surprise the muscles shortly.
