How to Build Bigger Arms. You’ll never have big arms as long as you’re under-weight. No matter how many biceps curls you do. To build bigger arms, increase your overall muscle mass first by getting stronger and eating a lot.

Eat More. You need to eat. Triceps are often forgotten about when a lifter thinks about building massive arms, but actually make up two thirds of your upper arm. Your biceps are a smaller muscle group than you triceps.

In order to transform your upper body you need to train your triceps with. Number one rule of good form is to avoid moving other muscles not involved in the movement and avoid swinging your body. For example if your biceps and shoulders move while doing tricep cable extension, you will involve your shoulders too much taking away much of.

The workout will start by focusing on the triceps. The reason the focus is put on the triceps is that they are bigger than the biceps. Massive triceps will make your arms look bigger. The first exercise will be skull crushers, a great movement to target the entire triceps.

Triceps dumbbell extensions can also be done in a seated position with both arms at once. Hold the dumbbell above and behind your head, lower it and raise it up above your head again.

Pushups and Dips are other great alternatives, as are tricep pushdowns on a. Get your triceps involved. Following a grueling chest workout, dedicate some time to working your triceps. Lifts like skull crushers, overhead tricep extensions and close-grip pushups are efficient at singling out the triceps muscles, which serve to extend the arms.

Here’s what they found: According to this research, the diamond pushups, bench dips, and triceps kickbacks are the most effective exercises to target the triceps. Building bigger arms doesn’t only involve lifting weights, as bodyweight exercises can be very effective for training the triceps.

  • Hey Jeff, I tore out my biceps tendon at the elbow a few years back. Ever since it was reattached via surgery and healed my bicep sits visibly higher than my intact one. I’ve tried to put a lot of focus on getting full range on my exercises involving the biceps but it just won’t get back to normal, can anything be done, I think I’m stuck with this uneven set of arms.

  • Ok… I don’t know what kind of voodoo-Hoodoo you got going on, but I’ve been watching a Bunch of vids today from early 2017 to now and Dude…
    YOU KEEP GETTING Y O U N G E R in Every episode!!! -Anyway, Thanks for everything you do. You’re One of the Best things to happen to YT. Cheers!

  • The three finalists: 0:40 tricep pushdowns, 2:20 close grip bench press, 4:10 overhead extension
    The winner for mass: the OH extension

  • Bigger arms has always been about as easy as extend, and extend again. Take a break for a few days if your elbows start to hurt, then go back to extending.

  • Hello I see alot of guys wrong themselves during after a workout they are going to weight the same or just atid bit more why are they looking to weight less thx izreol Ramirez Denver CO

  • I don’t know why but the barbell tricep extension still screw up my elbow up even with the form Jeff has shown… Getting the bar up just gets too painful after 5-6 reps when I try to go reasonably (for me) heavy…

  • Awesome video. Accurate and in depth approach. Thank you, you always give great advise and put the most important things first: Health and exercise longevity! Well done.

  • I like doing the last one on a decline. Also great advice on keeping your elbow back. I do it that way and some guy at my gym was trying to correct me, and I was biting my tongue not telling him he didnt know what he was talking about.

  • I think you nailed it. With the selections,you showed I have to agree with you, the last one would be my pick. And I would say it does the most for the long head. Great video! Thanks for sharing it!!

  • I can’t do the lying triceps extension. Not even one rep. It makes my shoulder joints grind like a bad manual transmission, so loud I can hear them.

  • i have been doing the same exercises for the years but i don’t have big triceps, its so tiny and i don’t even have those cuttings:(

  • The triceps extension or ‘skull crusher’ used to be my fav triceps excersize, untill recently i was not able to do it or benifit for it regularly due to pain in my elbow. Every time i try to push the weight from down up, i get this “crack” at the back of my elbow close to my triceps, it does not hurt after the excersize however, only during. This ‘crack’ feeling was present from the first time i started doing this excersize, but it wasnt a major issue back then, just recently it stopped me from doing the excersize from the struggle. I went to the doctor and the treatment did not help. I hope someone can respond i dont want to miss out on this exercise.

  • I’ve been searching an exercise up called tricep extensions with dumbbells but I can’t seem to see anyone having a uncomfortable neck am I the only one cause I feel like I’m working my neck more than my triceps

  • When i was doing skullcrusher i girl came i told me im doşng it wrong and she tried taught how to do it right.İ felt really bad and cringed. İ got bored of people that thing they know everything only cuz theyve been training for longer

  • haha really jacked myself up doing the barbell triceps extension… my shoulder blade almost ripped out lol. Might have been using a little to much weight.

  • I have a question.. For the close grip cable press, when you stand over the bar like how you were in the video isn’t that helping yourself? I’ve tried it but I feel like leaning over the bar makes it easier to push down because your bodyweight is helping you.. Maybe I’m not understanding it..

  • Great informative video jeff!
    However, I do have a question.

    What is the difference between the tricep extension and the skull crusher?

  • Can anyone help me with a question? I feel a lot more comfortable doing skull crushers (or tricep extensions) with cable. Is doing the movement with cable while lying on the bench less effective by any means?

  • If some knew can’t be honest about their steroid use when talking about techniques or supliments they use in order to mislead peopoe then don’t trust them. Sure this guy looks good. But he’s on a shit load of drugs.

  • Lying tricep extension… that’s what I’ve been doing. Good to know I’ve been doing that right. I’ve only been qorking out for a little while…
    I may have been doing push up wrong though. I think I’ve been doing cobra push ups…
