For those of you out there who want to know how to get bigger arms fast, stop making bicep curls the focal point of your workout routines. Although isolation workouts are important when targeting g a specific muscle group, unless you activate sufficient muscle fibers you will not be training your arms to their full potential. I am going to share with you a strange little trick you can perform in the gym to accelerate the process of building bigger arms.
Note: Before I jump right into it, please take note that your triceps make up about 65% of the mass on your arms. With that being said, I will be sharing a simple trick for both biceps and triceps that will allow you to get noticeable results faster than you thought possible.
How to Get Bigger Arms Fast
The trick I am about to reveal has a very simple but effective science behind it. You see, in comparison to the larger muscle groups, biceps and triceps are fairly small. Because these muscle groups are small, they require only a small amount of muscle fibers when isolating them. The secret I am going to share will allow you to trigger more muscle fibers (which will result in more overall muscle mass) and will trick your body into thinking that it is lifting heavier than it actually is. So here is my take on how to get bigger arms fast without doing more bicep curls.
The chest is a very large muscle group that requires a ton of muscle fibers as well as the assistance of the triceps. The trick is to perform 3-5 sets of one heavy compound movement prior to isolating the given muscle group. Before going into your tricep pull downs and kick backs, perform one heavy compound movement that requires the use of this specific muscle. For example, start off with 3-5 sets of flat bench presses in order to activate the triceps and recruit much more muscle fibers. Once the triceps are activated and the muscle fibers are working, your body has prepared itself for some heavy lifting. This will allow you to breakdown more muscle fibers during your triceps workout.
The same idea works when building bigger biceps. In this case, start off with 3-5 heavy sets of pull ups in order to activate the biceps and recruit more muscle fibers. Once the biceps are activated and the muscle fibers are working, you can move to the isolation routines to put an emphasis on this muscle while your body is prepared for heavy lifting.

Now that you have the secret and are aware of how to get bigger arms, you will notice explosive results pretty quickly. I say secret but in all reality this technique has been performed for years by serious weight lifters that more than likely where not even aware of the science behind it. Have you ever heard someone say “today I’m doing chest and triceps”? Basically they perform their chest routine and then move on to their tricep isolation routine. Unknowingly these people are activating the triceps with their chest workout and recruiting more muscle fibers allowing them to break down more muscle during their isolation session.
