How To Get Great Arms

One particularly for the guys today.  

Having great arms is mainly a concern in the summer when everyone's wearing t-shirts and vests but my advice is don't wait for good weather to work on the guns.  Get going now and then unveil the finished product as soon as Spring is here.

Here are 3 top tips to get big guns:

1. Mix up the order of exercises
Make sure you don't do the same workout on the guns repeatedly.  Keep using different exercises in a different order to ensure you fully load the biceps in every workout.  Target the biceps from as many different angles as possible.

2. Supersets 
Alternate compound exercises using lots of muscles with single muscle group exercises.  For example, blast through a set of pull ups followed by a set of hammer curls.  Then try a set of rows followed by preacher curls.  For even faster results, vary the order in which you do your supersets.  Sometimes your supersets should start with the compound exercise, other times try the single muscle exercise first and then the compound exercise.

3. Experiment 
Shake up your workout with different patterns of reps.  Sometimes 3 sets of 10, sometimes 5 sets of 5.  Drop sets of 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 repetitions, or pyramid sets of 3, 6, 9, 12, 9, 6, 3 reps.  Working to failure with every set will see your guns grow massively week by week.
