How to make biceps bigger

Posted Dec 06 2009 4:52am

Introduction
Men rule the world and women rule the men. So, when it comes to women liking men, there is always a weakness for big biceps. Or so the men think. It’s a bit more complicated than that. But that’s just one of the reasons why men want big biceps just so that we can look like our comic book fantasy such as ‘The Incredible Hulk’, and perhaps to have the women go ‘Aaaahhh’.

In the real world, however, you can get those biceps that you want but not necessarily the green tint not unless envy becomes you!

OK, boring. Let’s cut to the chase here. What can one do to enlarge their bicep size?

Particular exercises, but it has to be complemented with the right nutrition.

But before that, let’s identify the bicep muscle in the arms and understand how it can be strengthened.

Biceps Brachii Muscle
The biceps brachii muscle is located in the upper arm (as shown in the figure) with the dual function of rotating the forearm and flexing the elbow.

BicepsYes, it’s as simple as that.

And in order to make it stronger, weight and resistance training methods work very well. One example of how you can focus on the biceps in the arm is by performing the well-known ‘curl’ that can be accomplished with commonly used fitness equipment like dumbbells and barbells.

And since big biceps are characteristic of a man’s strength and sexuality, let’s discuss how we can enlarge them to a manly size.

Bigger Biceps – How?
Nutrition
In order to build and maintain a rock hard body, it’s protein and carbohydrates for life! And you’ll find a plethora of weight training supplements to help you reach this goal of getting bigger biceps not unless you’d like to keep to the food. You’ll have to speak to a certified (and registered) dietician before taking the dive into that sort of thing.

Exercise
The exercise part is bit more complex than that as it not only pertains to the biceps but also the muscle that connects it to the triceps (look at the figure above). That’s how you’ll get the most out of exercises which is by working on both these muscles.

Weight training (anaerobic) seems to the most effective way to getting bigger biceps using the implements mentioned in an earlier section. And if you don’t know this already, there are a wide range of exercises (just the variation of ‘curls’ will blow your mind) that you can try.

Personally, I would rather work out with free weights rather than machines designed for workouts. And this again depends on what your overall goals are, in terms of how you want your body to look.

Just surfing the internet will give you enough material to use for muscle building. I, for one, have improved [read: from gutbucket to a relatively flat tummy] after buying Mike ‘O Geary ‘The truth about Abs’ which not only focuses on the abs but the overall exercise routine for beginners and for those who consider themselves experts.

In Closing
If you are looking for exercises & nutrition that will help you get bigger biceps, you can consult a physical trainer or look over the internet for a lot of information (both free and for a fee) or both that will help you build bigger biceps to get that macho look.
