You’ll see it over and over on our site and across the interwebs, but the arms are one of the first muscles to show progress after you start training them. We’re talking just weeks before you start to see results with your biceps. One great way to track your results is to measure your biceps before you start training. That way, after you’ve spent a few weeks doing Daily Spot’s bicep workouts for men, you can see concrete evidence of the progress that you’re making. Keep in mind, if you’re doing this, it’s best to measure before you eat or lift, as that could impact the results. We recommend in the morning before breakfast.
Key Bicep Exercises
When creating bicep workouts for men, trainers consistently rely on a few key ‘clusters’ of exercises. For example, curls and chin-ups. These are two tried and true workouts that get the job done – they can be used to build strength, or they can be used to tone. It’s careful to note the subtle differences in the bicep exercises used in a routine. Small things like how you grip a dumbbell, position your hands on a barbell, or use overhand/underhand grip on a pull-up bar will greatly vary the target muscles of the workout. Pay close attention to the routines because a ‘reverse grip barbell curl’ works muscles differently than a ‘barbell curl’.
