Looking good has a lot to do with what you wear. No one would agree more with this statement than us. However, well-fitting clothes look even better on a well sculpted or in shape body. Just imagine how much better you could look with a muscular torso and arms to complement your high-quality shirt. It’s not too difficult to attain such a look, you’ll find below a guide to using techniques that will start your journey towards a better physique and looking your best.
1. The Barbell Curl
This straight barbell curl is the easiest way to increase the size of your biceps. If you’re a man and have never even set foot inside a gym, you’re still probably familiar with this exercise. To perform this exercise, simply hold a large barbell with your hands and pull it up using only the muscle on your arms. Remember to keep your elbows in front of your hips the entire time you do this exercise and don’t jerk your back when you lift the barbell. If you are unable to lift the barbell smoothly while doing this exercise, you may need to reduce the weight on the barbell.
2. E-Z Bar Biceps Curl
The E-Z Bar Biceps Curl will supplement the barbell curl and help your arms look their best. Using this bar will help you shape your outer biceps. To do this exercise right, you should hold the bar making sure that your elbows are in front of your hips and your knees are slightly bent. Remember to breathe out when you pull the weight up and breathe in when you lower the weight.
3. Alternating Dumbbell Curl
Many of you are probably already familiar with this exercise having seen it on TV or in a movie. To do this exercise, you should hold a dumbbell in each hand. The weights on both dumbbells should be facing the same direction, they should not be held sideways. You should bend your knees slightly and keep your head straight. Once again you will always keep your elbows in front of your hips when you perform this exercise. Pull the dumbbell curl up one at a time using your arm to sculpt a great pair of biceps.
If you continue to perform these exercises religiously, you will see a difference in the size of your biceps with a few weeks. Remember to maintain a nutritious diet while you regularly do these exercises. If you spend one rigorous hour each day in the gym, try to have at least 8 egg whites every day to get the best results.
