Getting big arms fast for skinny guys isn’t as complicated as it seems…
Problem is, most guys go about it the wrong way. And that is by FOCUSING on getting bigger arms…
Bear with me here…
In fact, not only will I fill you in on what I mean, I will also show you EXACTLY how to get big arms fast for skinny guys!
Let’s dive in…
What You Need to Know About Building Big Arms Fast For Skinny Guys
I’ve had a lot of friends desire bigger arms. And what did they do? They just started doing bicep curls every day, hoping that their arms would grow.
Did they get results?
Sure, but they were minimal…
What’s more, disproportionate in terms of the muscles that make up your arms.
Doing those bicep curls all of the time doesn’t do a damn thing for your triceps, for example.
Finally, big arms hanging off skinny shoulders doesn’t look good at all.
It makes you look like one of those ‘i only do bicep curls’ kinda folk.
But you want a strong, well-rounded body with those chiseled arms, don’t you?
Of course you do!
So you build a greek god and building big arms fast for skinny guys just becomes part of the process!
What’s more, hypertrophy (that’s a fancy word for muscle growth) comes fastest by increasing stress on muscle fibres throughout your entire body. You will have a much easier time building arms when you do so. And this is most effectively achieved through an increasing stress put on by compound lifts.
Your arms will get a lot bigger by including chin-ups, than they will by only doing bicep curls for instance.
(not to say you shouldn’t use isometric exercises like bicep curls – but more on that in a moment…)
If you truly wanna build bigger arms, your best bet is to follow a hardgainer routine that works.
But let’s cover here some of the best exercises and approaches to building bigger arms.
Best Way to Train For Bigger Arms
As I said, you need to be following a total body resistance-training program. In addition, to compound exercises, you should utilize isolation exercises.
There are multiple ways to approach this…
You can follow something like a 5-day split that isolates arms on a given workout days.
OR you add them in as accessory work with your main lifts (remember, the compound lifts are what really build a solid physique).
The latter is preferred in my opinion.
That’s because you’re getting the hormonal benefits of lifting heavy and stressing more muscle groups in your body.
This helps you to grow back bigger and stronger.
The added benefit is that your arms are being targeted secondarily for your upper body exercises. When you do the Overhead Press, for example, your triceps are being worked.
THEN… you add in tricep extensions to isolate your attack on the triceps. Kinda like a finisher to the main course.
And BIGGER arms as a result.
How to Train for Bigger Arms
Alright, so we know what we need to do.
Follow a total body resistance training program based upon hypertrophy and strength.
Then, make sure you isolate your arms as ‘secondary’ exercises in your workouts.
Finally, let’s speed it up a lil bit.
Since your triceps are antagonist to your biceps – which means your triceps are not working while your biceps are, and vice versa – you can superset exercises to crank out some efficient work on your arms.
A superset is when you do back-to-back exercises. For example, let’s say you do bicep curls followed by skull crushers.
Let’s come up with a hypothetical workout to see how this plays out:
- Bench Press: 3 sets of 6-8 reps
- Shoulder Press: 3 sets of 6-8 reps
- Bicep Curls SS Tricep Extensions: 3 sets of 8-12 reps
- EZ Bar Preacher Curls SS Tricep Pushdowns: 3 sets of 6-8 reps
Boom. That’s a heavy duty upper body workout that maximizes the efforts from your arms.
As a result, helping you build bigger arms faster!
Hope this helps!
