How To Do Pushups To Get Big Arm Muscles

pushups for big arms

Lots of men, and some women too, are looking for bigger and stronger arm muscles - particularly if they are striving for that 'Adonis Golden Ratio' shape. So one of the most effective ways to achieve this is to have a weight lifting routine that includes lots of pushups.

Pushups are a timeless exercise that is known to be extremely effective in building larger arm muscles. It plain old works people.

The 'form' in which your pushups are done is incredibly important in determining how effective it is though. You could do a thousand pushups a day with bad form and won't see any great improvement. So if you're thinking "m'eh, tried that, it didn't work for me" then I'm telling you that you were doing them wrong!

On the other hand, if you do just 100 pushups a day while really concentrating on doing them properly with the right form, the difference this will make to your arm muscles is huge, and will help you get an AGR body much faster.

The key to proper form with pushups is to have arms parallel to each other and to keep the back straight, like a plank. Having an arched back during pushups not only renders them ineffective, but also can lead to long-term back problems. Do them slowly, concentrate on your whole bodies posture and where you feel the muscles working - that way you can spot when you form needs adjusting to focus the effort where it should be happening.

There are many different variations of pushups that can be done for even better overall results. Of course, it is advised that someone looking to improve the size of muscles in their arm stick to regular pushups at first. However, if regular pushups are beginning to become too easy, there are harder and more effective alternatives.

Doing pushups with one hand is a great way to workout an arm for greater muscle mass. Of course, if you're doing single hand pushups don't forget to alternate and work both arms evenly! Working just one arm is a great way to look silly with one arm large and strong, while the other will look smaller in comparison.

Another variation that can be done with pushups is clapping in between each pushup. This works by propelling yourself into the air in between each pushup and quickly clapping (just once) with both hands before repeating the exercise again. This adds a further level of tension in the workout, leading to a more effective and challenging workout.

Of course, there is more to big muscles than just exercise, you have to get the nutrition right too. If you don't have a diet plan to build muscles then your progress will never be what you want it to be. The side benefit of focussing on your diet is not only those muscle gains but also your overall health can greatly improve, particularly if you don't eat well right now.

Anyone, of any age, can improve the size of their arm muscles. Pushups really are an amazing exercise for arm muscle development. Give them another try and see the results for yourself.
