Who says biceps curls are for dudes only? Here’s why every lady should be training her biceps and triceps for stronger, better-looking arms!
Well-defined arms with lovely shape are the perfect accessory to your dream body. Plus, they make any sleeveless dress or tank top look even better.
Don’t shy away from curling hard and heavy. Trust me: Your arms are not going to rip out of your sleeves. Women don’t produce nearly enough testosterone to make huge gains quickly. Even the biggest guys know that building a lot of muscle takes time.
Shapely biceps and triceps are an important part of a symmetrical physique. They’re also an important part of being a strong lifter!
Here’s a quick guide to training your arms. I’ve even included a workout. Let’s get those guns pumping girls!

A great thing about training your biceps and triceps is that you don’t have to spend a million hours working them. Whenever you do any pushing movements like push-ups or presses to work your chest, you also work your triceps. Whenever you do pulls like lat pull-downs or rows to train your back, you indirectly work your biceps.
If you lift hard on your chest and back days, then you don’t need to spend too much time doing arm workouts. Moreover, the biceps and triceps are smaller muscles, so you don’t get many metabolic benefits from training them.

I prefer to work my arms directly one day per week for 30-45 minutes. That workout, coupled with the indirect work my biceps and triceps get during my other workouts, is more than enough to keep my arms strong and looking great.
