The Ultimate Arms Workout
Burn and firm your biceps and triceps with these four moves from Gold’s Gym personal trainer Sean Meehan.
Whether you want big biceps or toned triceps, this arm workout can help you get great-looking arms—but that’s not the only reason to try these moves.
• Your biceps and triceps are essential muscles that you use every day to do basic things like lift groceries or move a chair. Keeping them in shape ensures that you won’t be easily fatigued or injured.
• Many people make the mistake of working only their “show muscles” in the front. When working their biceps to the exclusion of the triceps, they fail to strengthen the whole arm. That imbalance can also lead to injury.
