Can you suggest how to get good triceps and biceps?

Can you suggest how to get good triceps and biceps?

Work them: Do different types of curls and extensions. Eat right. And keep changing up your workout routine. Your muscles get 'used to' the same work out, so it is best to keep changing the exercises that you do. Use heavier weights with less reps. From personal experience, triceps are very tough muscles to bulk up. And they are even tougher to maintain. So keep at it. Good luck. ...Read more

How do you get biceps and triceps to 'fill out' instead of being just 'bulges'?

Keep at it: The best thing to do is concentrate on curls and extension exercises of different types. Use heavier weights and less reps to get bulk... Rather than lighter weights with more reps -which is better for trimming down on flabby arms. Be sure to eat right.
From personal experience... Triceps are difficult to 'fill out.' they are tough to get bulky, and tough to maintain the bulkiness. Good luck. ...Read more

If I do bicep, back, triceps exercises then skip a day and repeat. Should I just target two muscles a day?

If I do bicep, back, triceps exercises then skip a day and repeat. Should I just target two muscles a day?

Depends: If you are just starting out, exercise wise, you'll likely be able to get away working out this frequently. But the more serious your lifting habits and longer you are doing this, the more likely you will start to suffer from over-training. Smaller muscles groups like bi's and tri's can often be trained more regularly yet still recover - this may not so much be the case when training your back. ...Read more

Are the muscles used for kegels and reverse kegels the same muscle? Or is it different like bicep and triceps?

Are the muscles used for kegels and reverse kegels the same muscle? Or is it different like bicep and triceps?

My take for you. ..: To hold something together in balance to function always requires healthy extensor and flexor muscles to alternatingly contract and relax in concert. So, Kegel exercise uses the same sets of extensor and flexor muscles to artificially exercise them like what we do in exercising the arms or legs. ...Read more
