for size you want to lift heavy keep reps under 10.and adding weight each set. you can do decending sets for example preacher curls==125x6,105x6,85x6,65xfailure. the weight you use will be different but u get the idea.dont do decending sets all the time about once a month,same concept followed by dumbell curls..good bicep excercise are preacher curl,incline dumbell curl,hammer curls,concentration curls,reverse grip cable curls. i dont understand what black rain wants to know but hope this helps.

How old are you and how tall are you first.


200 is a big boy.


Simply put about arms for any good core exercise make sure you are doing straight bar curls, they are the meat and potatoes of building bigger arms. Make sure you are squeezing the movement at the top of the rep and not going past the sqeeze. Going to far takes all of the movement out. I think I saw " The Loaf" Explain it best I will try and find it.


here it is.

try right now to just stand up. Now, while keeping your elbow at your side, flex your arm. Notice where your hand is when you fully flex your biceps. Like Mac said, alot of people go past this point. Flex both arms and imagine that your holding a bar. As you can see, with your elbows remaining at your sides, when you fully flex your arm the bar can't exactly touch your chest.


Now start over with your hands at your sides again. Keep your palm facing your hip. Now, flex your biceps. That's a hammer curl. The difference between this and your regular dumbbell curl is the rotation of your hand.


An alternate way of doing these are from an incline bench. But like Mac suggested, keep it simple and basic. If possible, lift in front of a mirror so that you can check your form.

You need to gain or lose weight according to your goals. No one can tell you that for you. I've seen guys that weigh 200 pounds that look like your average Joe, and then I've seen dave henry (IFBB pro, Olympia competitor).

thanks for the kudos, Mac.




Nothing great was ever achieved by being realistic. Most people get scared when setting goals, and ask only for what they think they can get, not what they really WANT. This is a mistake because puny, "realistic" goals are NOT motivating, WANTS are motivating.

If you want big arms, you have to work your triceps. I suggest close-grip benches, over-head tricep ext, and push-downs.

You don't Just work your triceps, of course that is a part of it also. Both muscle groups have to be worked.


Stick with the basics at first like I stated straight bar curls, alternating DB curls, hammer curls and even some seated preacher Curls.


Sticking with the fundemetals is essential if you want to grow and that is for all exercises.

No problem, A good balanced program is what you need to stick too. It will come. Big arms are sometimes limited to genetic too,but you can always change that factor to a certain degree by having them proportional to the rest of your body.

That depends on what you mean by "big" arms. I have good sized arms, friends have noticed the diff since I started training. Shirts that were once loose are now way too small on the arms.


But . . . I do notice that when working out I can curl and tricep press the same as others with arms that are bigger. I just think that if you have muscular arms you will be noticed, maybe not HUGE but muscular and defined. I will never be HUGE, but people say I look good.

I've noticed a similar thing. My friend lifts about the same as I do, but his biceps look larger. I have a long bicep tendon so I tend to have a two finger gap. His bicep is much longer and it makes his arm look bigger. There are some genetics involved in how big they'll look.
