If you have worked out at a gym, you have surely seen others focusing on their biceps or at least heard a ‘look at those biceps!’ or a ‘flex your biceps!’ They are a muscle group that is traditionally very focused on in the fitness world.
Do you want toned and strong arms yourself? If so, your bicep muscles are a necessary part of your upper body to work out. Now, you just may have wondered ‘what is the best exercise with dumbbells for biceps?’
Luckily, you don’t have to be at a gym to work out your bicep muscles. You can work them out perfectly well by doing bicep exercises with dumbbells at home. A simple set of dumbbells is both inexpensive and convenient to keep in your home, and they offer a simple and efficient way to get a good workout in. You can increase the weight of your dumbbells if you are trying to build muscle and are ready for the next challenge, or stick at a comfortable weight where you can do more repetitions. More repetitions with less weight leads to toning, whereas more weight and fewer repetitions leads to building.
Let’s first start out with what your biceps are.
Your bicep muscles are located on the front part of your upper arm. Visually, they are one of the most viewed on the body and in terms of function they serve to flex your elbow.
Before completing any bicep exercises with dumbbells, begin by warming up your body and activating your biceps. This will prepare your muscle groups for strenuous activity and avoid overly-stressing your body or injuring it.
Select your dumbbell by considering whether you want to focus on toning or building. You can tone your arms by using less weight and completing more repetitions, and build your arms by using more weight and completing fewer repetitions.
Here are 7 of the most effective bicep exercises with dumbbells!
As you perform any of these exercises, be sure to keep your abdominals lightly engaged and back straight so that you carry the weight and movement actually in your biceps. You should feel your biceps fully engaged in each movement.
And remember, after completing bicep exercises, or any exercises, stretch out your muscles to give them the best position to repair.
Before starting any new exercise regime, consult with your doctor first.
