In building the muscles, not many people know that the main requirement for such a goal is to develop all the target muscles without the help of supplements in the form of drugs or steroids. This way, any harmful and toxic substances can be prevented from entering the body and ruining one’s chances of having physically healthy and well-built muscles. Some people may think this can’t be done, but the truth is that many successful bodybuilders have triumphed in bodybuilding competitions without getting any boost from drugs or steroids. The secret is simply performing fitness workouts.
Many fitness gurus out there try to convince the general populace that they can get the body they want – including the muscles they desire to show off – by following an effective workout regimen. These gurus are right. Instead of believing in the marketing campaigns of countless products and services claiming to be the best bodybuilding solutions out there, you should try out to stick to a regular exercise schedule and do tried and tested exercise techniques for building your muscles. Fitness workouts, unlike pills or supplements, do not contain ingredients that may cause adverse effects. What’s more, you can do them without the use of too many pieces of expensive equipment.
One of the most basic exercises for working out when trying to build the muscles is the chest builder. This exercise requires lying on a flat bench, just like what you do when you perform bench presses. With a small bar that has curved hand areas, put your hands toward the very center and keep your index fingers five inches apart to achieve best results. Place the bar between the center of your chest, at the nipple region, and move it an inch above your face, behind your head, and finally as close to the floor as possible. Pull back to the starting position, careful at all times to keep the bar just an inch above your face or chest. If it’s your first time to do this exercise, use only 10 pounds on each side and work from there.
Of course, you don’t just want to have a big chest; you want big forearms, too. This will make you look physically even and well-toned. Fitness workouts for getting big forearms should only be performed twice a week. Any more will bring out funny results, like overly worked out forearms dangling beside a medium-sized chest. You can use a light dumbbell while sitting on a bench. Grab the end – not the middle, as most forearm exercises require – of the dumbbell as you perform slow wrist curls; squeeze at contraction to ensure maximum growth for the muscles. First finish three sets of eight before doing eight sets of reverse wrist curls with a lighter dumbbell. This simple workout can significantly enhance the current size of your forearms, as well as improve your forearms’ muscular definition, allowing bumps to pop out in a really nice way.
