I have a bump on my bicep and  it only hurts when it is touched. Is it a knot because I did push ups a couple a days ago. If so how can I get rid of i?

Not an easy: thing to guess at from your description. May have no relationship to pushups and could be an early abscess in addition to a number of other possibilities. I would have a physician take a look at it soon. ...Read more

What can I do to build definition on my biceps?

What can I do to build definition on my 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

Better than pull ups: would B 2 do biceps curls. Find a weight that let's U complete 2sets of 20 curls but won't let U finish the 3rd set, once U can finish the 3rd set add weight so U can't. Another way 4 curls is back up against a door frame so U can't cheat, lift 2 a count of 4 on the way up and 2 down it will make a lighter weight very hard 2 complete 3 sets. Rest doing another muscle groups between set. ...Read more

I need a good workout for bigger biceps help plz.

Exercise: Why focus on just your biceps? Why not upper body? Why not whole body? Why just size rather than functional strength? Anyway, start here http://www.mensfitness.com/training/workout-routines & http://www.menshealth.com/fitness. Don't forget that you should aim for consuming approximately 1g protein for every pound you weigh. And let's not forget sleeping enough. Good luck! ...Read more
