5 Quick Tips on Growing Your Arms
Big arms are one of the most looked at body parts. It's natural that everyone wants to get bigger arms. Today, we are going to break down 5 simple and effective tips on growing your arms.
1. Eat More
In order to put on size or gain muscle, you are going to have to eat more. You need to eat more calories than you burn in order to gain weight. This doesn't mean eat everything in sight. Make sure you are getting a lot of protein in, and balanced carbohydrates and fats. A good rule of thumb is to aim for at least 1g of protein per body weight.
2. Get Stronger
Getting stronger results in an increase in size because your body is building more muscle which results in you getting stronger. Focus on increasing your core compound movements which will ensure that you gain size and increase your overall muscle mass.
Muscles don't grow from doing bicep curls 5 times a week. They grow when you are resting. Give your arms a break and make sure to get your sleep.
4. Track Progress
Weigh yourself daily and make sure to track your progress. Measure your arms once a week or every Monday or Sunday (the days are up to you). If your arms aren't getting bigger, you are not training properly and most likely not eating enough protein or calories.
5. Avoid Curls
Most people focus on doing as many bicep curls or tricep extensions as possible. Although it is important to work out individual muscles, it also helps to increase your compound movements as well. Compound movements are extremely important and result in overall muscle mass increase. By increasing your squat, bench press and deadlift, you will see an increase in size in your arms as well as your whole body.
Make sure you eat more high-quality foods and that you get enough protein. Your goal at the gym should be to get stronger, which will mean that your body is building more muscle. But don't forget to rest and get ample sleep. Do not overwork your muscles. Make sure to weigh yourself daily and measure your arms at least once a week. Lastly, don't neglect compound movements, but rather focus on increasing your key lifts. Make sure to make adjustments to your diet or training when you see fit.
