To be honest, gym workouts give results because of the kind of equipment most gyms possess. So if you don’t mind turning into a gym freak to get bigger arms, then you wouldn’t mind trying each of the exercises mentioned below:

 

1. Barbell Curl:

All gym freaks know about this exercise. An easy activity, hold the bar with a shoulder-width grip. Your arms must point to the floor. Keep your elbows an inch away from your sides. Curl the bar towards the chest, while keeping your elbows and back at a fixed point.

Contact the biceps and triceps as soon as the bar touches the front of the chest. The key is to resist weight while you slowly lower the bar to the floor for a full stretch. Repeat the set.
