Flattery in the gym

Yesterday in the gym a couple of young, new members asked me how they could build biceps like these 62-year-old arms! 


First, I told them I'd been consistently training for decades. After I asked how often they work their biceps, and they answered "three or four times weekly," I delivered the news they didn't want to hear.

My advice (to anyone who wants to build bigger arms) is to train biceps specifically only once every week or two! All workouts should be based around lifting heavy weights, all the time:  deadlifts, squats, presses, cleans, rows, etc. Every truly strong person I've known works out their entire body, and they always have big arms!

I didn't even touch on nutrition with these two relatively skinny guys, or I'd probably still be talking...
