Experts claim that women can’t build big female biceps due to the lack of testosterone, which is a male hormone. For women who like to do strength training just to tone the muscles and look slim this is a piece of good news for them. However, female bodybuilders who aim to have impressive huge biceps have to tackle on two things to literally force biceps growth.

Firstly, concentrate on the training with less reps and more weight. Training in the gym becomes a necessity as opposed to any bodyweight training from home. The fact is that the gym could provide better professional training equipments than all-in-one home gym. Taking advantage of the cutting edge professional gym equipments certainly provide better benefits for muscle training. In the gym you could find many types of bicep training equipments such as barebell bicep curl, cable double bicep machine, one arm hammer preacher curl, and one arm dumbbell preacher curl, just to name a few.

So how many sets of exercise is enough to build big female biceps?

Try 2 – 3 types of bicep exercises each with 3 sets of 6 – 8 reps. For example – one arm dumbbell preacher curl, barebell bicep curl and one arm concentration curl. If you are able to train more than 8 reps then it is time to add more weights to force muscle grow. While doing the curls always concentrate on the slow movements towards your head and do not jerk or move the elbows. The burn on the biceps can be easily felt that means the method is correct. Repetitions is not all the answers to building big muscles, concentration and the correct methods are two very important factors attribute to muscle growth without unnecessary injuries.

Secondly, in order for women to build huge female biceps or any other muscle groups, heavy protein supplementation is necessary. Some female bodybuilders go extra length to take hormone to boost muscle growth. However, do check with the doctors before taking any hormone for bodybuilding. There are lots of side effects from track records regarding hormone supplementation.

Women can’t produce testosterone like men to assist muscle growth but they can have big biceps. They are not trained differently than men but rather the efforts lies in the effective training and supplementation.
