With all of the information available on how to get big arms, you would think that everyone would have them. The problem with most of the arm workouts you come across is that they ignore the real reason why professional athletes have such big arms. It’s not simply from working the biceps and triceps. If you’ve been searching for an arm workout but haven’t found any that do the job, then you may want to shift your focus to a little-known muscle called the brachialis.
What is a Brachialis?
If you’ve never heard of the brachialis, then don’t feel bad. It’s rarely discussed in fitness magazines, and few people know how to train it, but if you’re interested, then here’s a test. Look at your arm in the mirror. Do you see the muscle between your biceps and triceps? There’s one there, and although it may be small, if worked properly, it can give you bigger arms than anyone on your block. Here’s how it works.
Grab a pair of dumbbells. The weight doesn’t matter, as long as you’re able to lift it for 8-12 repetitions. Hold your arms at your sides as though you were doing a regular curl. Now, instead of twisting your forearm as you lift, keep you arm in the starting position, and with your palms in, bend at the elbow and lift straight up. As you slowly lower your arm, you will notice that you’re making a hammering motion. That’s all there is to it.
If you’re serious about training your arms, then doing hammer curls is the only way to get the massive width you’re looking for. You can pair hammer curls with regular curls, concentration curls or whatever you wish. Just remember that the brachialis makes the arm.
