Do This Arms Workout to Get Ready for Summer
The sun's out, which mean it is time to get the guns out. Add size and strength to your biceps and triceps with our summer arms workout plan.
The following arms workout is not designed to replace your existing workouts, but is rather meant to be something added to at least two workouts a week for the next four weeks.
Doing dedicated arm workouts typically is not a good idea, as it can lead to disproportionately large arms, as well as create imbalances within the upper body. However, doing extra dedicated arm workouts can help ignite new growth and strength when done periodically for a short period of time.
This arms workout is designed to challenge your arms to help ignite quick gains in size and strength.
How to Do the Summer Arms Workout
As mentioned, the following arms workout should be added to the beginning or end of two workouts each week for the next four weeks. Try to increase the weight of each exercise at the beginning of weeks 2, 3, and 4.
Again, the arms workout is not designed to replace your existing workouts, but rather should be used as supplemental training to blast your biceps, triceps, and forearms into shape.
