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.

How to build strength to do pull ups? I can't even do one pull up an I don't know how to increase strength to do it?

How to build strength to do pull ups? I can't even do one pull up an I don't know how to increase strength to do it?

Start slowly: Pull-ups are a difficult and complex exercise. I would start by doing push-ups - once you can do 20-30 regular pushups (not "girl" push ups) then start working on "diamond" push ups (put your hands close together on the floor so the fingers make a diamond). Build up on how many of those you can do. Then move to supported pull-ups (with a chair underneath your feet). Keep working at it! ...Read more

How to get a perfect size zero figure..I do cycling for 30 min daily what else can I add to my routine?

Engage in any physical activity of your choice since you need to do something for the rest of your life.

Ideally you should not be able to finish the 3'rd set. If you are able to,add weight to the curls, and elevate your legs to make the push-ups harder. As you get stronger, more weight & elevation. ...Read more
