Want to grow your biceps, make your triceps pop, build your chest muscles, traps or back muscles? Lifting weights is the way to go. One of the best ways to strengthen your upper body is to lift weights. It’s also one of the quickest ways to see results.
Yes, I’m about to say work with a professional. I’ll tell you why. Personal trainers will inform you on how to move your upper body properly. While some of you may think, a curl is just a curl, it isn’t.
If you look up recent workouts for Arnold Schwarzenegger, who happens to be 70+ years old, you’ll see that he’s still going strong curling upwards of 125 lbs outdoors. Impressive for any age, this isn’t an easy achievement. He doesn’t just curl arbitrarily, everything is calculated and every move is paired with precision. He didn’t learn how to do these overnight. Arnold has been lifting weights since he was a teenager. He joined a gym and the older weightlifters were happy to help him learn proper form. It was hands on training, not a YouTube video like today.
Hands on training will guide you on which exercises will grow your arms in a well rounded way. Not only will training grow your portfolio of exercises but with a partner or a professional, you’ll be able to really improve muscle growth.
Just to give you an idea of some of the exercises, read below. Many of these can be done with dumbbell curls and I recommend starting off this way because dumbbells will develop command and control of simple positions as well as complex ones.

Building a Stronger Body
Once physical fitness becomes a part of your life, you can reimagine your physique. Broader shoulders give the appearance of narrow shoulders. Well-defined arms look great in tank tops for both men and women as well as provide a balance.
