Top 3 Tips for Building Massive Biceps Quickly

Building big biceps are a “must” for everyone trying to build muscle mass. And if you’re trying to build bigger “guns” on your arm then you need to make sure you train them the “right” way, other wise you’re just wasting your time. And believe it or not it can actually take a very long time before you start seeing results if you’re training your biceps the wrong way.
So to help you build bigger biceps extremely quickly I’m going to share 3 top tips I use to build my biceps in no time flat.

  1. Hit ‘em From ALL Angles.
    Your bicep muscle is made up of two main parts. To keep things simple I’ll just refer to them as the inner bicep and the outer bicep. The good thing is most bicep exercises allow you to work both parts simultaneously – which is very good for us.
    In order to build big biceps you have to hit ‘em from all angles. Which means you have to make sure you train your lower bicep (the part closest to your forearm), your outer bicep, your inner bicep (the part that’s closest to your chest) and your upper bicep.
    Make sure when you workout your biceps you train all of it’s parts if you want to build bigger, stronger and more massive biceps fast. The key to building “fuller” biceps is training each part “specifically”. So be sure to do exercises that work out each part of your bicep individually and also exercises that work out all or most of your bicep muscles simultaneously as well.
  2. Focus On Form First.
    This is key for weight training period, focus on your form first. If you focus on “doing” the exercise correctly, big biceps will definitely follow.
    When you don’t use proper form, you don’t stimulate the “deep” muscle tissues needed to build bigger biceps. With poor form you actually start using other muscles instead of specifically targeting the one you want to train (your biceps).
    Remember, it’s not quantity but quality. Think about it, you could lift 30 pounds ten times with poor form or 30 pounds six times with proper form, and you would notice much better results with the latter example. So remember, focus on form first and big biceps will soon follow.
  3. Don’t Cheat – “Only When You Have To”.
    When you’re training your biceps, it’s important “not to cheat” only when you have to. Cheating on your biceps is very common and odds are you have been doing it or will do it if you don’t pay attention.
    Remember to lift the weight “at your biceps” and only at your biceps, don’t throw your shoulder into it to help you with the workout. In order to build big biceps you have to isolate the bicep, which means only use your biceps to complete your reps.
    So when do I cheat? – Well, unless you have a spot while you’re doing bicep workout, you can get away with cheating but only in one situation.
    And that situation is once your biceps have already failed. In other words, once you have worked your biceps to failure and you’re trying to complete more reps, then you can cheat your way through 1 or two more reps. But only once your biceps have failed “using proper form” are you allowed to cheat.
    If you’re ready to build big biceps and quickly just follow these 3 simple tips and you’ll be on the road to a big biceps in no time flat.
