Another Arm Workout!

It seemed like many of you enjoyed my last workout post, so I decided to share another killer arm workout with you! Last time I was also asked to make videos and although I was slightly self conscious while doing it, I had B record me doing my favorite bicep triple set. When I say self conscious I really mean completely and totally self conscious... even when I have him take photos of me I tell him "Okay stand over there, turn off the flash, don't hold the camera up too high because then people will know what you're doing...." haha I'm a dork. Anyway, here is the workout we did this morning. 

Preacher curls 8 reps x 3 sets (40lb barbell)
Triple set (video): dumbbell curls, barbell curls, hammer curls with rope attachment 8 reps x 3 sets
Overhead cable curl: 8 reps x 3 sets (20 lbs) 
Tricep pushdown: 8-10 reps x 3 sets (30lbs & 40 lbs)
Dips: 3 sets to failure
Close hand pushups: 3 sets to failure


This was my last set and my muscles were screaming! I highly suggest you have your gym partner take a video of you sometime because it really helps seeing yourself from another perspective. I noticed by the time I got to the rope hammer curls my form wasn't perfect-- my elbows should have stayed a little closer to my sides. I hope you give this workout a try and let me know what you think! Have a great Tuesday!

  2. Looking great! Would you mind sharing your weight on the exercises in the video. Love your blog! Over the past year I have been changing over to a much healthier lifestyle. Your recipes make eating clean so much easier. Thanks for sharing how you are helping your parents.

  4. Looks good...you are small like me..how tall are you? Did you have a hard time gaining muscle? That seems to be my biggest thing. I have chicken arms and legs and having a hard time packing on the muscle.

    1. I'm only 5'1 and yes, it has taken me 8 months to put on the muscle that I have. I'm definitely a hard gainer and I hear you about the chicken legs! Just keep working at it, you'll get there!
