We’ve discussed Arnold’s biceps peak and his full-range workout—standing curls, incline curls, concentration curls—a few times in this newsletter.
While most bodybuilders did concentration curls seated with their arm braced against the inside of their thigh, Arnold preferred a standing version…
This was one of his “secrets” to eye-popping bi’s. That “free, dangling-arm” version emphasized the outer head of his biceps, which contributes most to peak, but it also trained his brachialis muscles hard.
Those lengthy muscles snake under the biceps and connect down on the forearm. When the brachialis are beefed up underneath, they push the biceps to higher peaks.
Another great exercise to beef up the brachialis muscles that we talk about in our X-traordinary Arms e-book is incline hammer curls…
MRI studies show that the incline hammer curl totally lights up the brachialis better than any other move.
There’s more on that, as well as which biceps and triceps exercises focus on which heads in our X-Arms e-book, along with complete routines and how to preform each exercise to turn your arms into sleeve-stretching pythons.
By the way, that’s Jonathan’s drug-free 19-inch arm on the cover below, and he used the tactics in this e-book…
