your favorite compound movement to develop bigger arms
« on: July 11, 2017, 05:10:09 am »
hi guys it's been a while since i made any post...  any recommendation for exercises (any type, db, bar exercise whatever) that will work many parts of the arms at once...  i would like bigger arms in general - forearm, bi and triceps...  i just saw this video few days ago and i tried this pull up variation and i really like it.  it feels like it work a lot of different parts.

other than pull ups, chin ups, rows, push ups, overhead presses, bench, dips...? seriously any compound movement for your upper body will involve your whole arm. pick a couple pulls and a couple pushes and do them in a bb rep range (~24-30 total reps).

grip work can also be very good for the forearms, just be careful with wrist and elbow health.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
