Evolve your bicep and tricep growth with David Kingsbury - the man who turned Hugh Jackman into the t-shirt tearing Wolverine
Most men want bigger arms. But few understand the most effective formula when it comes to eliciting serious growth in the quickest time possible. That's where I come in: the moment Hollywood studios want results fast.

You will have probably heard that to build bigger arms you need to focus on your compound lifts. This is true. But truer still is the fact that mixing compound moves such as the chin-up with some targeted, smart isolation moves will double-time that development. The magic comes in the design behind your sets and reps. I'm going to give you part of my winning potion here.
It's important to remember that your arms don't want to be big. Bulk in excess is unnecessary to your body - it wants to stay economical and therefore as lean as possible to function. But by combining these two movement patterns you'll be tricking your body into thinking you throw boulders for a living. Your biceps and triceps will have no choice but to grow.
Factoring in slow eccentric lifts will yield greater muscle gain. Protein synthesis after eccentric focused lifting is improved and it preferentially recruits fast twitch fibres which have more potential to grow during your big lifts. These combined will help create a positive environment in the muscles for added mass.
By performing the slow eccentric sets followed by the higher rep sets you will stimulate all of your muscle fibres to grow. Leaving no stone unturned on the road to massive guns.
Narrow Chin 5x 30sec negative phase (1-2 reps)
Cable curls 5x 15 reps
Floor press 5 x 8 reps (4second negative)
Med ball push ups 5x 12 reps
And that's all you need. Of course, fuel is essential to allow them to grow. I recommend using a quality carbohydrate like highly branched cyclic dextrin paired with BCAA during training to maximise results. I'll see you on set.
