Summer Tank Top Biceps & Triceps Workout
Currently, my workout routine consists of 3 run days and 3 arm lifting sessions and one rest day. I do this bi/tri workout about once a week, in addition to shoulders and pec workouts. It's great for building strength and sculpting your arms. Reps and sets in parentheses. (sets x reps per set). I have built my weight up to be around 10-15 lbs. for free weights, depending on the exercise, and about 40 lbs. on the machine for pulldowns. When I started I was in the 5-8 lbs. range. It really just depends on your body, but I recommend writing your weights down every time so you can see your progress and how strong you're getting!
An important note for this workout is to always alternate between a bicep and tricep exercise. It helps rest the muscles so you can make it through the whole workout!
