Rows, presses and push ups… all help build the muscle in the biceps and triceps but we all love an arm specific workout! An ab & core segment to make this a challenging yet very enjoyable muscle building session!
Try to think about each exercise as time to practice! Lifting with intent, the very best you can, will help ensure to maximise those gains!
2 sets per exercise for biceps then onto those triceps! We will be switching between the biceps and triceps for a majority of this workout as these muscles can tire quickly and we want to maximise the quality of each rep!
Please ensure you warm up your entire body prior to beginning, including the shoulders!
The dumbbells Content Creator is using for your reference are 2 x 12.5 kg for the triceps and 2 x 8 kg (mainly for the bicep curls).
The timer will be on for 60 seconds per exercise with 30 seconds rest in between!

This was in place of a weekly HIIT workout that We share however We will be still completing a HIIT or moderate intensity cardio workout at least once per week. There are many benefits to elevating the heart rate such as in a HIIT workout however performing such a workout only once a week allows to mentally give it 100% , but also it does cause stress on body therefore We personally prefer once per week typically.
This week We completed the 500 rep cardio challenge that We will ‘suggest’ as an add on. This is exactly that… a suggestion.
As with most of the add-ons We share post workout uploaded, We complete these when We feel like a burn out, or some bodyweight practise post a dumbbell workout. However We don’t always complete the suggested add ons either due to time restraints or energy levels but still are selected as an add-on relative to the initial workout!
I hope you all enjoy this arm and abs workout as much as We did! The biceps are still feeling the pump!
