This is part 3 of the "Home options for resistance training" threads
Part#1:The Chest
Part#2:Back and Shoulders
  • Body Part:The Arms

We are concerned with two muscles located in your arm.
  1. Triceps(Marked in Green)
  2. Biceps(Marked in Red)
A common misconception is that you need to train biceps in order to get bigger arms,while that's true it's not the best approach because your triceps make up 2/3 of your arm.It's a larger muscle in comparison to your biceps.

How to train your biceps at home ?

The best way requires you to purchase a piece of equipment.

It's not very different from the pull up,except you go for an underhand grip instead of an overhand grip

Resistance Band/Chest expander bicep curls
This version of the curl is actually more ideal than the weighted curl,because the tension increases according to the strength curve,with the top portion of motion where the bicep is strongest is the hardest part of the exercise.

If you don't want to purchase any equipment

Towel Curls

You control the resistance in this exercise so don't press so damn hard that you can't curl,but don't press too little either

You don't even need a towel to perform this actually

Tricep Dips

The only difference between this and chest dip is the positioning of your torso.Don't lean forward and stay upright if you want to hit your triceps

How to train your legs at home ?

Difficult exercise for advanced trainees
