I Want Big Guns !!!

No, not the killing kind - I have spaghetti arms, and want to know the best way to build biceps. I drink protein shakes, take Creatine - nothing builds them up. Any buff guys have suggestions ? ( I have long limbs).

Have you tried weight training?

by Anonymousreply 105/14/2013

Yes, wise ass - everyday. Free weights - barbells, dumbbells. Push-ups

What my trainers have informed me is that you basically just have to patiently exercise your chest and back effectively in order to get big guns.

Have you tried doing weight training the correct way?

Of course you do.

High weight, low reps. Forget about cardio.

My biceps are the one part of me that just won't get big. I do have an 8 inch dick to help feel better about this.

You gotta eat some protein also. Bodybuilding is 70% diet and 30% weight training.

If you can manage it, add a set of medium weight squats to failure. Nothing to do with arms, you say? There is something about squarts that put your body in an anabolic mode, making targeted gains in select areas like arms much easier. And don't forget much of arm size comes from tri' blast 'em.

Make sure you give triceps attention. They're the biggest muscle in your arm and make it bulkier.

Now this is one area where I want no gun control!

You should work out only three days a week - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Your muscles grow when you give them a chance to recover from exercise. You need to exercise your entire body - legs, back, chest, shoulders - if you want your arms to grow. As others have said, triceps are bigger than biceps, so if you want your arms to get bigger, you also need to exercise your triceps.

Do heavy squats. In general lift heavy and get anabolic. Don't do skinny/fat-person exercises.

What are "skinny/fat-person exercises"?

Well, this is my bed, and that's my parents' bed, and this is where I sleep.

Spinach always does the trick for me.

like r12 said, don't workout every day, you need to give your body down time to build up what your tore down. that also means getting plenty of sleep.

by Anonymousreply 1705/15/2013

Yeah, what are skinny fat exercises?

by Anonymousreply 1805/15/2013

Can you workout every day if it's different muscle groups?

by Anonymousreply 1905/15/2013

Push-ups! Three times a day. Start with hands on floor with feet up on low stool. After 21 days move feet up to chair with hands on floor. No need for weights or gym membership.

May I see a pic of how that's worked for you ? Sounds a little dubious.

I've heard that eating protein immediately after exercise, especially strenuous workouts, helps with muscle recovery and building. Has anyone else heard this or have experience?

Visit That website has a ton of information for you.

Here are five tips: 1. Eat right. Diet is the number one thing that will change your body. Make sure to get enough protein. 2. Properly supinate. Make sure you rotate your forearms in the right manner. 3. Keep your elbows still. 4. Sqeeze your muscle at the top of the movement. This applies to all muscles. You squeeze a particular muscle when the movement is the farthest from the floor. For biceps that means when the barbell or dumbbells are near your head. This will give your muscles definition. 5. Use manageable weight. If you are shaking on the first or second rep and your goal is 12 reps then you have too much weight on the dummbell or barbell.
