Comments Off on 3 Important Tips to Help You Build Bigger Biceps Faster

If there’s one muscle group that gets more attention than it deserves, then it’s probably the biceps. Ever since Rambo flexed his ‘guns’ every guy became envious of a set of arms like that. To add fuel to the fire, women just go gaga for big arms. Maybe this is the reason why most guys start their muscle building plan with their biceps – trying to build the proverbial muscles that everybody now associates with being strong. As young boys we learn that flexing your biceps is a way of showing off. When you walk into any gym these days nothing seems to have changed. The amount of guys perched in front of the mirror doing dumbbell curls is mind blowing. When it comes to building biceps most guys get it wrong. Maybe it’s inexperience or maybe it’s just because everyone looks at what everybody else is doing. Here are 3 tips to help you build bigger biceps faster. 1. More Is Not Better We all tend to figure that if 3 sets is good then 4 or better? Unfortunately that’s not how it works. There is an optimal training zone and if you over exert your biceps, you can easily do more harm than good. Don’t go for the instant gratification and try to build big biceps over night. Les is more and slow and steady wins the race. As boring as it sounds, it still is the best way. 2. Focus on Muscle Tension Biceps respond well to constant tension. The problem is that most guys can’t isolate muscle groups well enough when they train and they end up not targeting their biceps very well. Poor technique and sloppy lifting is one of the main reasons why guys miss out on the full benefits of their training session. 3. Mix It Up It’s true that some people are more susceptible to forming habits than others, but from a muscle building point of view this is not always a good thing. If you go to the gym every day and train the same routine and the same sets and the same muscles it does lose its effectiveness. Your muscles tend to become fatigued, but when you mix it up you can create far better results. Train other muscles as well. When you do chin-ups and rows your biceps will come along for the ride. You don’t need to train biceps every day for 30 minutes. Biceps definitely is an important showpiece muscle. It’s on par abs although it probably gets ten times the attention that most guys give their abs. It’s important to remember that building muscle and getting ripped is not just about great biceps. Although most guys focus their bicep training mainly on barbell curls and dumbbell curls, there are a lot of different routines you can use. Some are even more effective at isolating the biceps. Mix it up. Train your shoulders, your back and your pecs as part of your bicep training. They will help to train a different aspect of your biceps and in the end give you a more defined look and a harder feel.
