Monday, September 25th, 2017

Big Arm Training Super Set

Today, I’ve got a Killer Biceps Circuit from August of Arms you can try in your training when you want to absolutely destroy your biceps and forearms.

This is a 3-piece circuit, and you’ll go through it 3 times, with as little rest as possible between movements. I’ll list the exercises and reps below.

    A1) Reverse Curls (10 Reps)
    A2) Rope Curls (10 Reps)
    A3) Tube Curls – Full Range (10 Reps)
    A4) Tube Curls – Tip Range (10 Reps)

Build Big Biceps with This 3-Piece Circuit

Prepare to have not only your biceps blow up big enough to stretch out your sleeves, but your forearms might just pop as well.

Also, if you want to pack on more Monster Muscle during the month of October, then get ready…

August of Arms 2015 – The Tale of the Tape

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

August of Arms 2015

August of Arms, the month where we train arms in some form or fashion all 31 days during the month of August, is complete.

I first got the idea of training arms for a month straight from Dave Depew, an arm-wrestler friend of mine out in California. With the results he saw last year, I just HAD to try it and went for it wholeheartedly in August of 2014, and encouraged others around the world to join in via Facebook and other Social Media.

August of Arms 2014 was such a success, having added very nearly 1 full inch on my arms during August last year, I decided I was going to do it again in 2015. Only this time, since so many people asked me to provide workouts for them, I put together an entire month of workouts for August of Arms 2015.

I am getting reports in from others, slowly but surely, and will be posting them here on the site soon, but before I get to that, I wanted to show you my personal results first.

August of Arms – The Beginning

To begin, I started out the month, just a shade under 19 inches for each arm, which is extremely close to where I ended last year. A lot of people were of the thinking the gains wouldn’t stay, but it is apparent that they did from August 31, 2014 to August 1, 2015.

Unfortunately, I can’t find the pictures I took of my arms at the beginning of the month…

August of Arms – Re-Measure Days

I did 2 re-measure days on August 10th and August 20th. On the 10th, I noted an increase of roughly 1/4″ on each arm, and by the 20th, I saw another 1/4″ added for 1/2″ total, two-thirds of the way through the month.

Here are the posts where I showed my re-measure pics:

Re-Measure Day 1 – August 10th

Re-Measure Day 2 – August 20th

With August coming a close, I did my 3rd re-measure day on August 31st, and the final measure is in the video below.

August of Arms – Performance Emphasis

In addition to sheer size increases, I also set the program up to increase overall strength, using high-resistance, low-rep strength endurance as well as low-resistance, high-rep strength endurance, in order to put an emphasis on increasing performance, on top of the overall size.

For these tests, I chose 4 exercises:

  • Biceps High Weight Strength Endurance: 135-lb Barbell Curl for Max Reps
  • Biceps Low Weight Strength Endurance: Poundstone 100-rep Barbell Curls AFAP
  • Triceps High Weight Strength Endurance: Close Grip Bench with Bodyweight for Max Reps
  • Triceps Low Weight Strength Endurance: 30lb 1 Arm French Press – 100 Reps AFAP

August of Arms – Before and After

In the below section, you’ll see the initial baseline test for each lift, followed by the re-test performance.

Part 1: Triceps High Weight Strength Endurance: Close Grip Bench with Bodyweight for Max Reps

Part 2: Biceps High Weight Strength Endurance: 135-lb Barbell Curl for Max Reps

Part 3: Triceps Low Weight Strength Endurance: 30lb 1 Arm French Press – 100 Reps AFAP

Part 4: Biceps High Weight Strength Endurance: 135-lb Barbell Curl for Max Reps (Again)

Part 5: Biceps Low Weight Strength Endurance: Poundstone 100-rep Barbell Curls AFAP

Part 6: The Measurements

As you can see, August of Arms 2015 was a success for me, in the way of size and strength (with the exception of the Barbell Curls). You’ll also see that August of Arms 2015 was also a success for many other individuals.

Just because August is over, don’t think you still can’t keep doing “August of Arms.” Some people got into it late and are yet to finish, so I expect to hear from more people about their gains and improvements.

Also, lifters are still picking up their copies of August of Arms in order to put together their month-long trek of Arm Training Specialization.

If you haven’t picked up August of Arms yet, it’s still available, and you can pick it up by clicking here: August of Arms – Arm Specialization Training.

Be sure to send in YOUR results from August of Arms when you’ve finished the program as well.

All the best in your training.

August of Arms – Re-Measure Day 2

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

August of Arms Update

Today is August 20th, so I did a Re-Measure Day.

To give you a re-cap, I started off the month, just under 19″ by a little bit. On the 10th, I was right around 19.25″, and now, it’s looking like I’m up to about 19.5″.

20150820_145302 20150820_145839

I gotta say, I think the biggest growth has happened in my triceps, especially my left one. Every so often, I’ll see my tris out of the corner of my eye, and think, “WOAH, they definitely seem bigger.”

Now I wish I would have taken a before and after measurement of my triceps flexed…oh well.

Hey, as small as the growth is, it’s still progress. And I’m beyond PUMPED to see it. This little experiment has worked so far, two years in a row.

I’d love to hear how your progress is going. Please leave a comment below.

If you’d still like to get your copy of the August of Arms Program, the low price of $27 is good through the entire month. Get it today => August of Arms.

You have the right to build BIG ARMS, and you can start doing it today!

All the best in your training.

August of Arms 2015 – First 10-Day Re-Measure

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

August of Arms 2015: Update #1

With yesterday being August 10th, it was my first Re-Measure Day for August of Arms.

I was PSYCHED to report about a 1/4 inch improvement on each arm, especially since the first 7 days of the month I was on family vacation.

As a review, I started out at roughly 19 inches per arm and now I am at 19.25 inches. The still shots are in the video below.

On Saturday, I was driving back from the beach, so I was only able to get some high-rep band work in and missed the planned workout, so on Sunday I combined both Saturday’s and Sunday’s workouts and got a great session in.

Here’s a video of one of the exercises I did, called Arm Wrestler Dumbbell Curls. It was part of the Fame of Arms workout in the August of Arms program.

Arm Wrestler Dumbbell Curls

As you can see, Arm Wrestler Dumbbell Curls is all about strength. The dumbbell used was pretty heavy and the isometric hold at the half-way point was very demanding and produced a different kind of pump in the arms.

The way I see it, it’s still early in the month. Plenty more time to produce add size to the guns.

Being home, I will be able to get better quality workouts than when I was on vacation, so I’m really looking forward to the next 2/3 of the month!

It’s not too late to pick up your copy of August of Arms. So what if you’re late to the ball game.

Your month of August of Arms starts RIGHT NOW!

Pick up your copy of August of Arms TODAY.

All the best in your training.

How to Be Able to Play More Angry Birds

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

As my obsession with Angry Birds gets stronger and my ability to manage time gets weaker, I find myself with less and less time to train.

However, limited time to train has not hurt my training progress, as it has forced me to quit screwing around while I am in the gym and pack a ton of quality, hard, and serious work into my training sessions.
