If you want to build muscle mass and burn fat, then you must work out your arms every other day. There is a big misconception that bodybuilders and athletes need to spend hours in the gym working on their arms. The fact is that if you are just an average Joe who does not have hours to spend at the gym, you will still be able to do the same workouts that they do. Here is how to do arm workouts that will give your biceps, triceps, forearms, and chest a serious workout.

Exercises to Build Arms

First of all, I would like to point out that it is very easy to overdo arm workouts and actually cause yourself injury. You want to work out for a maximum of about sixty to ninety minutes per workout. If you try to do more than this, you will strain and even tear some of your muscle tissue. Most people are aware of this, but it is important to know this also so you do not injure yourself during your workouts.

If you are going to work out your arms every day, you will be focusing primarily on compound exercises. A compound exercise is one that works multiple muscles at once. An example of a compound exercise is a compound bicep curl. A lot of people think that doing curls is only recommended for people who do weight lifting. While weight lifting is great for building muscle, it is also important to do arm curls because it also helps build up the testosterone in your body.

Now that you know that you should train your arms every other day, we need to discuss how to train them. The best way to train your biceps, triceps, and forearms is to train them in groups of six. By grouping your arms, you are forcing yourself to focus on each group at separate times. This will help you focus each muscle better and will give you better results.

For your triceps, train with three sets of ten reps and low reps. Use a weight that you can comfortably handle and make sure that you keep the reps between four and five. On the other hand, for your biceps, train with four sets of twelve reps and low reps. Train each group separately for best results.

For your forearms, do two sets of ten reps. Then use lighter weights for the final set. Make sure that you do a full range of motion and really stress out your arm muscles. Remember, muscular endurance means that you are constantly training them. So if you have muscular endurance for ten reps, you should be training your arms for fifteen reps.

For your triceps, you should do two sets of 12 reps of preacher curls and one set of ten reps of flat bench press. If you do a complete range of motion, then you will be training your triceps to build up to heavy weights. If you do too little or too much, you could damage your triceps. That is why it is important that you find the perfect balance so that your arms workout burn both triceps and biceps simultaneously.

When you do heavy compound exercises like deadlifts, squats, and bench presses, do not forget to do isolation exercises. This will allow you to maximize the total volume of muscle fibers that you are training. Lastly, remember that when you are doing resistance training arms, you need to always use tension on the muscle. This is true for training arms every day as well as your regular cardio workouts.
