OK, so you’ve nailed the bicep curl but you’re still not seeing those guns. What gives? Get ready to add killer arm combos to your routine…
Think of this plateau as your body’s way of saying ‘you need to take this to the next level, girl’. Now, biceps curls and tricep dips are great and all, but if you’re repeating the same moves every second day, you’re muscles will stop being challenged. The best way to shake up your arm workout is to combine lifts to target more muscles and torch more kilojoules.
Here are three power arm combos that’ll up that workout
1. For killer biceps, triceps and shoulders
Biceps curl + overhead press
2. For a better bust and tighter core
Biceps curl + forward punch
3. For a full body move
Squat + bicep curl + overhead press
Eek! But what if you can’t make it to the gym? Don’t worry, you don’t have to skip your arm workout. You can try Kayla’s ‘no weights required’ arm workout (warning: your arms will be begging for mercy at the end).
