All About Biceps

The most common form of exercise, that you see someone doing at the gym in general, are bicep curls. Anything in relation to the biceps, has always stood out. The double bicep pose, that every single individual who gets into bodybuilding loves to set up, wouldn’t be as impressive of a pose without the biceps! The attempts to see who can lift the most weight on a barbell, is another challenge that everyone’s ego can’t afford to not accept. The bicep muscle, is that long and thick muscle that extends from your armpit region to your elbow region. They aren’t big muscles but they are the one muscle that a lot of bodybuilders thrive to get perfect. Making it as big as possible with an insane peak is the epitome of bodybuilding. The side bicep pose, another famous bicep pose, is a look that people expect to happen, with someone in bodybuilding. So it’s no wonder, a lot of emphasis is placed on developing one’s biceps.

Losing Body Fat

One of the biggest challenges to face anyone when they are starting off with fitness training, generally, is losing body fat. They tend to be bombarded with different weight loss products or diet plans and not having any proactive abilities, to actually choose a suited program for themselves. Not only that, but they generally don’t have the knowledge to distinguish between nonsensical articles/products from information that actually does work. The even harder part with losing body fat, is if you’re interested in getting “toned/lean” or as they call it in the bodybuilding world; shredded. Losing body fat and trying to maintain or build muscle, can sometimes be confusing. There’s a lot of conflict in the fitness community, on whether a person can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. In essence, one can’t get big, while trying to get small. When you think about it deeply, it does kind of make sense. You wouldn’t become a bodybuilder via doing this but you can definitely get a physique you can build on and have others admiring.

High reps or low reps?

A  mix of people tend to approach me, asking certain questions based on their individual goals. Some are already on that path to becoming fit, others just want some guidance on how to get on that path. Whatever it may be, it’s always the question of; “How do I gain muscle mass?” or “How do I get toned?” Some people are actually pretty confused that when trying to gain muscle mass, your muscle has to undergo hypertrophy, which requires low reps and heavy weights. For the other way around, if you want to get toned, you do high reps with low weights and sometimes if you’ve bulked to a certain weight and it’s time to cut some of the body fat from your physique, some people actually just maintain doing lifts for 10 reps, with weights they can easily do 10 reps with. Now, I just spoke there that to gain muscle mass, one undergoes muscle hypertrophy, which is basically the increasing of the size of the muscle cells. This in turn, produces larger muscles.  For toning, people generally use high reps with lighter weights.  Although, if you do enough research one would see that toning isn’t even something that’s possible, unless you lose body fat. I would have to greatly agree with that, as the word “tone”, is thrown around a little too much and one thinks if they do 20 reps of a certain exercise, with like 15 lb weights, then they are going to get toned and they[…]
