May 23, When I used to trainat Gibsons Gym in Manchester, Connecticut, one of the slogans on the back of the Six Weeks to Sick Arms. Another critical element to growing big arms is targeting all the heads of the biceps and triceps, so you need to understand the anatomy of the arms. Big Biceps Anatomy: The biceps are composed of two heads.
There's the long head, which is the outer head of the biceps. It is considered the long head because it originates higher on the shoulder the back side of the scapula, or shoulder blade than the short head.
This is the biceps head that makes up the biceps peak when you flex it. The short head, or inner head of the biceps, originates on the front side of the scapula. Both biceps heads converge onto the same tendon, which attaches to the ulna and radius forearm bones to cause flexion of the elbow, such as occurs during barbell curls, as well as supination of the forearm turning the forearm out , such as occurs during supinating dumbbell curls.
There are several ways to perform curls that focus on the long head. The first trick is to do curls with your arms behind your body, such as incline dumbbell curl and behind-the-back cable curls. Another trick involves doing curls with the upper arm turned in toward your body, such as concentration curls and close-grip barbell curls. A third trick is to use more of a neutral grip on curls, such as hammer curls, rope hammer curls and EZ-bar curls.
There are two main ways to focus more on the inner head of the biceps when you curl. First, do curling exercises with the arms in front of the body, such as preacher curls and machine curls. The second way is to do curls with the upper arms turned out, such as high cable curls, wide-grip barbell curls, or dumbbell curls bringing them out toward your sides.
In addition to the biceps, there is also a deeper muscle located on the front and outside of the arm, beneath the biceps, known as the brachialis. It attaches to the lower part of the humerus upper arm bone and crosses the elbow joint to attach to the ulna forearm bone.
The brachialis flexes the arm, such as during hammer curls and standard curls, but gets the most focus when you curl your arm with a neutral grip, such as hammer curls, or rope hammer curls, and when you curl with an overhand grip, such as reverse-grip curls. Big Triceps Anatomy: As the name implies, the triceps are composed of three heads: The three triceps heads all start on different locations.
Unlike the lateral head and medial head, which start on the humerus bone upper arm bone , the long head actually starts on the scapula shoulder blade. All three heads converge onto one tendon, which crosses the elbow joint so that the three heads can cause extension at the elbow when they contract.
The attachment of the triceps long head to the scapula is the reason that you focus on the long head when you do triceps extensions with your arms overhead, such as with dumbbell overhead triceps extensions or cable overhead triceps extensions. Bringing the arms overhead stretches the long head. When you stretch a muscle it contracts with more force, which allows the long head to take the brunt of the load during overhead extensions.
The lateral head gets the most focus when you do exercises with the arms at the side or in front of the body, such as triceps pressdowns, triceps kickbacks and lying triceps extensions.
The medial head gets hit better when you do triceps exercises with an underhand grip, such as reverse-grip triceps extensions. To properly hit your arms during these six weeks, you'll need to alternate your training split.
Each week, you will follow a four-day training split.
However, based on the week and number of times you are training arms, you will be training on four different days of the week and pairing up different muscle groups each week. Use the following training splits for each week of the "Six Weeks to Sick Arms" program.
Use this training split during week one:. Use this training split during week two:. Use this split during weeks three, four and five:. Week 6. Get the complete program.
Week 1. Monday Chest, Triceps, Biceps. You should be able to slowly lower the negative rep for seconds. Perform two rest-pauses on the last set by resting for 15 seconds after reaching muscle failure and continuing the set, then resting another 15 seconds after reaching muscle failure again, then continuing.

Arm Training Frequency. Once per week. Requires a full 7 days to recover. Twice per week. Three times per week. To cause overreaching. Stops the overreaching from becoming overtraining and the arms grow dramatically during the recovery. Yes, this is a 6-week program, but I suggest that you also take it easy the week after to allow your arms to recover and grow even bigger.
