PuMp It UP!

Once upon a time...

I gave my arms a good PuMp! (Actually, that happens on weekly basis!)

Never mind the foot attire.
K? K. ;)

Training arms is one of my fave muscle groups to workout! (Next to Shoulders!)

Every workout I do...

I push hard and I push heavy! (Unless I'm having a light week, which is about every 6 weeks!) 

For me...

I do each and every set to my maximum potential...(TranslationI rep to failure with a maximum of 6-8 on my heavier sets! Anything below that, I'm not yet ready for that weight!)

And I'm sure...

Not to train with my Ego...

But rather...

My Head! (Translation #2: I train Smart. I'm not about to use a heavier weight knowing I can't do the set correctly!)

If you train with an Ego (generally speaking, of course)...

Then you're not going to execute the movement properly and therefore...

You will not develop your muscles the way you'd like them to look like!

Having said all of this...

Proper form and technique are essential for each and every exercise you do, because...

That's how you're going to get better and get the results you're looking for! (You sure will!)

Like SuperFit would say...

"Don't be afraid of going heavy but don't sacrifice form for weight!" 

And...
"You can either train your Ego or train your Muscles!"
You got that right!

Okeedokes...

Onto the training!

Here's a typical Arm Workouts I do (now with SuperFit on the weekends! It's our weekly Training Date to be more specific! Awww, I know! lol) to develop and strengthen my:

- Biceps; and
- Triceps!

Starting with Biceps:

1. Dumbbell Bicep Curls:


2. Seated Barbell Curls:

I can't explain this face.

2a. Immediately followed by Standing Barbell Curls (to failure...which is about 3-4 reps after having completed 10-12 seated barbell curls)...


3. Concentration Curls...


Now for Triceps:

1. Skull Crushers (these sound so intense and scary....much like me lol)


1a. Immediately followed by Closed Grip Presses (about 6-8 presses in total)...


2. Lying Dumbbell Tricep Extensions...


Finishing off with...

3. Two arm seated Dumbbell Tricep Extensions...


And...

That's a wrap!

Well...

Aside from having a Post-Workout Protein Shake!

Revolution Whey Protein Powder, 12 oz. Water and 4 Ice Cubes.

So common...

Now it's your turn to...

PuMp it UP!

Workout recap...

Biceps:

  • Dumbbell Bicep Curls;
  • Seated Barbell Curls/Standing Barbell Curls; and
  • Concentration Curls.

Triceps:

  • Skull Crushers/Closed Grip Presses;

  2. Woohoo - love that workout. I have been having a really hard time getting past the 20's for curls, so I started using the EZBar recently - our gym only has the Olympic size straight bars and I'm loving how much stronger I'm already feeling. I see 25's in my near future. I have been liking incline curls recently.
