How can I increase my biceps with simple exercise?

How can I increase my biceps with simple exercise?

Biceps curl.: A dumbbell curl would be a great biceps exercise. Start with the dumbbell at your side by your hip, with your palm facing the hip. As you lift the dumbbell, keep the elbow tucked in to your body and turn your wrist so at the top of the curl your palm is straight up (this is called supination). Shoot to achieve muscle exhaustion within 8-22 reps. 3-4 sets. Don't need much. ...Read more

Please help! What is the best exercise to define the split between the long and short head of the biceps?

Please help! What is the best exercise to define the split between the long and short head of the biceps?

Loss of body fat: In general the best way to enhance muscle definition is reducing body fat percentage. Seeing definition between the heads of the biceps probably is not possible without a body fat percentage under 12%, and probably closer to 10%. I hasten to add that for health purposes one does not have to have body fat percentages this low, but I understand the drive to aesthetics. ...Read more

Hi I really need to build really big natural muscle (abs, biceps, back...)with home exercising not in the gym. What should I do and how should I exercise?

Home gym exercise: There are lots of great programs out there to build muscle outside of a gym. Believe it or not yoga is great at doing just that. Outside of that one of the best programs I have found that does what you ask is p90x. It works but you have to follow the program and depending how well you follow the diet you will be remarkably surprised in 90 days. ...Read more

Can I do hip and groin exercise daily? Because I'm thinking since hip and groin are less to be tired after workout then biceps and etc.

Yes: Your muscles and joints all work differently and can handle different levels of activity. As you don't walk on your arms, lifting weights may cause soreness more quickly than lower extremity strengthening. They are designed for daily use--so use them! Walk / run / stretch / exercise / strengthen! ...Read more

Greeting! I have big vein on my biceps on one hand, I exercise in the gym often and I afraid that this vein will become huge. Can compression sleeves?

Greeting! I have big vein on my biceps on one hand, I exercise in the gym often and I afraid that this vein will become huge. Can compression sleeves?

Sleeve not helpful: I would not expect a compression sleeve to do anything but compress the soft tissue & veins to a mild degree only while wearing the sleeve. I understand your concern but am not aware of any technique/device that would prevent your veins from becoming more prominent. This however is only a cosmetic issue. If can help, then join my care team & virtual practice at www. Healthtap. Com/dr-ClarkeHolmes ...Read more

Torn biceps tendon 7 weeks ago playing softball. Had ultrasound, awaiting MRI sept 15. Should I exercise to strengthen or wait for MRI & specialist.

Torn biceps tendon 7 weeks ago playing softball. Had ultrasound, awaiting MRI sept 15. Should I exercise to strengthen or wait for MRI & specialist.

See ortho now: If the tendon is completely torn there is a limited time in which in can be reattached. I am not an orthopedist but I recommend you consult one sooner rather than later because this may be a time sensitive issue. In the meantime range of motion exercise is all I would recommend because you don't want to convert a partial tear to a complete tear. ...Read more

2 Main ones: Free weight curls, either with dumbells or bar. Bar can be curling bar or straight. You may use a preacher's bench for isolation. Pull-ups (fingertips facing you).

Left shoulder and bicep intermittent pain. Echo and EKG 4 months ago, normal just enlarged mitral valve. Does not hurt with exercise. I run 5x wk.?

Advil (ibuprofen) that you use is anti-inflammatory. Does it help at all? ...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
