Is your gym always packed? You can still squeeze in a fast, intensive biceps and triceps workout on the fly. Triceps dips. Biceps curls. You’d be forgiven if you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to flexing these two muscles in any arms workout. But actually, getting bigger arms, and stronger, more defined biceps and triceps is all in the details. Don’t get us wrong: The results of back and bicep workouts and chest and tricep workouts comes from consistent lifting. But that chiseled, sculpted upper body? That comes from working each muscle group from multiple angles.That’s what this triceps and bicep workout provides. It involves barbells, dumbbells, and bodyweight to push each muscle to the max. To figure out how much weight to use, choose a set that allows you to perform 8-10 reps before exhaustion.
The beauty of joining biceps and triceps together is that one muscle’s flex is the other’s extension. This means that neither group totally rests for the duration of this workout. Switching back and forth between biceps and triceps moves also allows you to keep your heart rate up while also providing active rest, for a more complete weights session.

Physique Disclaimer: Throughout my fitness journey. I did not achieve this physique by doing these exercises alone. This video is just a demo, specially made for those who can’t go to the gym or do not have any gym equipment at home. Are these exercises still useful? In general, absolutely yes (and I’m doing them now for almost a month). Facts, Speaking about Muscle Hypertrophy, imo it is still better to train with Dumbbells and Barbells. Bodyweight at home might not be the best for growth but hey, done is better than none. Get it done first! My coaching program: https://ironmastery.com

#TrainWithJordan #JYtraining #IronMastery – Hey guys, what’s up? Today I wanna teach you
how to maximize your gains for your biceps. And this workout is so effective it’s as good as training in the gym. A bucket, a pail, right? And you have to load it up and do a curl. Now this looks very simple,
everybody can do it, however, today I got a few tips that can actually maximize your technique using this to improve your growth. So first of all, as usual, you’re gonna load up with water. I recommend you to load up like 20% first because you wanna start light. And if you still remember
this from my previous video, I actually still kept the water, and yeah. So load it up only like 15%-20%, because biceps are smaller muscles. It’s different from back, you can’t go too heavy. And you always wanna warm up. So using a lighter intensity is great. So here are the steps you
can improve your curl, rather than just curling like that. All right, number one, a lot
of people curl like this, whether on a pail of
water, a gallon of water, or even baggage. However, I find that doing
this is not sufficient enough, all right, because number
one, range of motion, right? What happens if I keep my arm straight? Nothing wrong in a gym, but
if I keep my arm straight, you see, this bucket, the
pail, will block my forearms, and then I will have a
restricted range of motion. Instead of curling like this, I’m gonna keep my arms backward instead. Now when I keep my arms
backward there’s a problem. Not enough tension at the top, right? So the solution for this is you have to hinge
your body a little bit. Keep your body hinged a little bit, and using your opposite
arm, clinch your fist, put on your stomach,
and you place your elbow above your palms, right? So right here, you wanna
support your elbow, it’s like doing a preacher curl, and curl. So giving this hinge actually helped me to have a little bit more range of motion without too early like this,
to block my range of motion. Right, the bucket and my forearm. Number two is when you recover, probably the bucket
will just hit your legs. So instead of doing like this, I would like to just take a step back. It’s like a strong, athletic stance. And step backward, hinge forward, and this allows me to go all the way down, with more range of motion, all right? And then curl, okay, so this is how it works. The normal, common
mistakes is stabilization. So when you do, try not to
move your elbow back and forth. So this is why you need
to use your opposite fist, as a supporter, right? The second common mistake
is actually your forearms. Like this, I see a lot of
people when they do their curl, it’s like this. Doing this, you use a lot of forearms and overtime because of
shortening in your forearm extending and shortening, 10 reps is okay, but what if you do this for
months over months and years? You will get elbow injuries. So always keep your forearm straight. Keeping your forearm straight will use a lot of wrist power also, but this is how we develop a strong wrist. Another part is extreme, too much of this. Well, this way actually
helps you to use more biceps. Because you’re taking away
the forearm’s pressure but putting in more pressure
for your biceps to do the lift. Like this. However, I still don’t
recommend people to do this, because there is a load,
there is a load here, overtime you will get
uncomfortable wrists. Because you have to remember that you also will be
doing other exercises, such as a burpee, push-up. A lot of this movement,
overtime will cause injuries. So my recommendation is
keep your wrists tight in a straight line. So one thing about
curling a pail of water, is you don’t wanna grip too tight. Because this is different from dumbbell. Dumbbells they have rollers,
some dumbbells have it. All right, but this if you grip too tight, it just makes things uncomfortable. So you want to just let
it loose a little bit, go with the flow, not too
tight, just about 60% effort. Use your mind to think about the muscles. Let your muscles do the lift. And that way you’ll get a nice flow and it feels more comfortable. Okay, you can feel free to get
a hand towel to wrap around for a more comfortable
grip, it’s up to you. So to build biceps, there’s always two different angles. The outer angle, and the inner angle. So the outer angle trains
the inner short head. And that is here. And the inner angle
creates the outer head. So it’s always the opposite. In, out, out, in. All right, so the outer head
is what they call a long head. From this angle, when
you’re relaxed your bicep, if you have outer head
your bicep will look bigger while relaxed, it’s like
no intentional flexing. All right, so both,
this is very important, so it’s about the angle. So what you can do with this training is you can do it with different angles. Number one, if you are in a rush in time, you can just stick to one
angle, and that is this. All right, this is the neutral angle. However, if you have trouble
gaining your arm size I strongly recommend you
to do this variation. Variations number one is curling outside. Instead of curling neutral,
you wanna curl outside. This will hit the short head. Once again, not like that, you wanna just hinge a little
bit for more range of motion. See the bucket is straight. So outward, and do this one
outward for about eight reps. And then switch to inward, because now you wanna train the long head. Inward, however, position
has to be changed, because your body curls inward, this doesn’t work, this
stance doesn’t work, because you are limiting range of motion. You have to change to a
wide, athletic stance. Because here you can still maintain the same range of motion at the bottom but curl inward this time. You see? You can do this. Once your done, the other side. All right, outward, eight reps, okay. And then inward. So an alternative way
to replace the bucket is just get your baggage, all right? It can be small or large, but small, more range of motion. So just load up your baggage
with bottles of water, or whatever works for you. And grab the handle. This same setup, opposite
arm, clinch your fist, big step back, hinge forward a little bit, and do a curl. Once again, same applies to the forearms. Make sure that you are
loose enough yet solid. You don’t want to just hold too tight, because you wanna curl with
a nice and smooth motion. So here is another
variation I wanna show you that works your biceps. And this is actually a time saver. So instead of curling one by one, you can actually use both arms. But both arms doesn’t
really work like this. Well, it works, for close grip, but sometimes you want to
go out wide with both arms. So what you can do for here is you wanna get a long towel. Then from your long
towel, you wanna make sure that everything nice, like this. You can just do a few turns,
make sure they are solid. And now, you need to place your bucket, make sure the handle is
straight, in a straight line, and wrap around them like this. Before I start, since you
are curling with both arms, you should add up the intensity. And it is so easy, just
add the water at 50%. And yeah, this is actually
a little bit more than 50%. For a long towel like this,
curling on pail of water, the range of motion is bad. Now the reason why you
wanna use a longer towel is because you want to
do this, and that is, fold inward, inward, inward, and do this. Because this, we use less
forearms but more biceps. And one thing, when you curl
make sure that they are equal. It’s not like this, right? Make sure they are balanced. A good way is to take it
around, you can do another fold, like this, to balance things out. And this method will
also help if your towel is a little bit too long. To improve the range of motion. So here, inward, there we go, curl. So sometimes, when you’re curling halfway, you notice that this happens. It’s okay, just put the pail
on the floor and readjust. Calibrate, and repeat. So the same rules, just keep
your elbow close to you. But this time, you’re not
able to support your elbow so you have to really tuck in your elbow to your ribcage, slight hinge, and curl. But for this, you have to do
it in a controlled movement because if you curl too fast, you will just move out of control and you lose balancing. We don’t want this to happen with you. So you wanna make sure that
you are nice and controlled. I recommend you to pause at the top for like half a second, all the way down, feel the stretch, half
a second, and repeat. Squeeze. So if you have trouble doing this, because of the range of motion, you can get a block or bricks. So stand on top, this will
improve your range of motion. Okay, now I’ve got more range of motion, so the bucket just won’t touch the floor. So the additional tip to
improve this exercise is, when you do this exercise,
don’t just curl like this, make sure you curl outward. Make sure to straighten the
towel at the top, like this. Try to straighten the towel, which helps you to use more biceps. All right, just try to
straighten, and it’s not easy. Because this will force
you to use supination. Because when you try
to straighten a towel, this happens, supination
will fire up the short head, especially the short head even more. So the same thing if you
wanna train your long head, also known as the hammer curl. You can use a neutral grip instead. A long towel will also work. So you wanna fold inward again, like this, keeping it straight. So from here, just curl inward
instead of curling outward. This will train the
long head of the biceps. And in addition, if you wanna train and work more of your grip and forearms, you can choose to use a
shorter towel, just like this. And instead of wrapping
around, just hold like this. And do a curl. Shorter range of motion,
for shorter towel. But this will work a lot of your grip. I think it’s a very good training also for your forearms at the
same time, your biceps. Okay, so it’s up to you to choose, whether you want to go
for pure bicep isolation, or you wanna go for overall
biceps and grip training. Okay, so there you have it. This is how I train my biceps at home. By just doing this demo, my
arms are already pumped up. I felt like a real workout. So to recap back, you can
do a single arm neutral grip curling out, or curling inward. I strongly recommend you to
do almost a super set version. Curling outward for five to eight reps, no rest, then curl inward
five to eight reps. That’s one working set. Also depends on your goal. If you have a stubborn
outer arms, the long head, you can curl inward first this is where you are the strongest, and then curl outward. Or just curl neutral, in a
neutral position, it’s all good. You can always use baggage if you do not have a bucket of water. Load up with weight, and
use both arms on a bucket. On a pail, both arms
version also works well, the feeling is like curling a barbell. And you save a lot of time. Feel free to implement every single grip. Wide grip, close grip, and
even the forearms variation. Worst comes to worst, if
you have nothing at home, you can always feel free
to just curl with a towel. Just like this. Using your body weight,
stepping, and just curl. This is in my previous video. Please check it out. So last of all, how many
reps and how many sets you should do for these exercises. I recommend that you start with
at least three working sets. For left and right, three sets. Three sets outward,
three sets neutral grip, three sets, you should do it like this, because you wanna save your forearms, or you wanna train your
forearms, three sets, or even if you’re doing a body
weight version, three sets. And repetitions, I would
say try to do 15 reps. If you can do more than 15
reps, add the intensity. Add up the water. Make sure you hit about
80%-90% of your max. And make sure to feel your biceps. And I’m pretty sure you will feel biceps. Thank you for watching, and
I’ll see you in the next video. Peace.
Biceps Tendonitis (a.k.a. bicipital tendonitis) is an inflammation or irritation of the long head of the biceps tendon. When it gets irritated, it can be very painful and limit movement in the shoulder. See Doctor Jo’s blog post about this at: http://www.askdoctorjo.com/biceps-tendonitis
The biceps tendon is a strong, cord-like structure that connects the biceps muscle to the bones in the shoulder.
To stretch the biceps muscles and tendons, you can stand in a doorway or use a sturdy chair to hold onto. With your palm open facing in front of you, place it on the sturdy chair or doorway and lean forward bringing your shoulder forward and across your body. Hold that for 30 seconds and do it three times.
Another way to stretch them is to use the seat of the chair, and place your palm down on it with your fingers facing away from you. Turn around so your arm is behind you, and again lean forward and push your shoulder in front of you and slightly across your body. Hold for 30 seconds and do three of them.
Now you are going to sit in a chair and use a resistive band. Anchor the band onto something sturdy or have someone hold onto it for you. This exercise will be for internal rotation. Anchor it to a table leg, in a door, or have someone hold it for you. If you want to roll up a small towel and place it between your side and your elbow, this will keep your arm close to your side through out the exercise. Keep your elbow at about a 90 degree angle and your thumb up towards the ceiling. Slowly pull your arm and the band in towards your stomach, and then slowly come back out. You don’t need to come back out far, just to where your forearm is straight out in front of you. Start off with 10 of these, and then work your way up to 20-25. If that becomes easy, then move up with resistive bands.
Now you will do a shoulder external rotation. The band will be on the outside of your body. Start off with your arm at your stomach. Try to keep your elbow by your side through out the exercise. If you want to roll up a small towel and place it between your elbow and your side, this will keep your arm close to your side through out the exercise. Keep your elbow at about a 90 degree angle and your thumbs up towards the ceiling. Also try to keep your wrist in a neutral position. You don’t want to over stress your wrist, and then have a wrist injury. Slowly pull arm out away from your body, and then slowly come back in. Start off with 10 of these, and then work your way up to 20-25. If that becomes easy, then move up with resistive bands.
The last exercise is bicep curls. You can step on the band, and keep your elbow by your side. Pull all the way up and all the way down. Make sure you are doing the full motion to maximize working the muscle. Make sure you are controlling the band; don’t let the band control you!

gonna show you some stretches and exercises for bicipital tendonitis. Let’s get started. So some people call it biceps tendonitis, you might hear that more, but bicipital tendonitis
or biceps tendonitis is when the tendon that goes through the grove there gets irritated.
So you really want to stretch out that bicep muscle, that tendon. You can kind of feel
it. It feels like a little cord right in there, sometimes it’s a little uncomfortable when
you push on it. But you want to stretch out that area, get that movement to get that inflammation
out. So the first one you can do against a doorway as well. I’m just gonna show you kind
of holding on to a chair, but you want to have your palm facing forward, put it either
on the doorway or something solid like the chair and straighten out your arm. And then
take your shoulder and just bring it forward and then a little bit to an angle. And what
that does is stretches out that bicep area right there. So holding that for about 30
seconds, nice big push, pushing forward helps a little bit more. And then come back. It
might be a little tender in that area so don’t push too hard. Just push to where you feel
a good stretch and then 30 seconds, do that 3 times. If that one’s not super comfortable,
or you want a different way to do it, you can get a chair or a counter top, put your
palm down on the chair. And then same thing, kind of push your shoulder forward or lean
forward and you’re gonna get that stretch through that biceps muscle and the bicep tendon
up there. So again, hold that for about 30 seconds, come back up, and do that 3 times.
So now I’m gonna show you some exercises in the chair. So for the next exercises, you’re
gonna use a resistive band. This is gonna be internal and external rotation of the shoulder.
So you want to anchor your band into something like a doorway, have some mysterious person
hold it off to the side. You can tie it up onto something, anything nice and sturdy.
But make sure it’s tight so it doesn’t come back and pop off and pop you in the head or
anything. Now keep your elbow by your side. Some people have a hard time with this, so
if you roll up a towel and put it right underneath, then squeeze it in there, if it falls down
then you know your elbow’s coming away from the side. So the first one, keep the thumb
up, keep your wrist in a neutral position, elbow at about a 90 degree angle, and just
nice and slow and controlled come in towards your stomach and then control it coming back
out. You don’t have to go all the way back out, just come to about that parallel to your
other arm kind of area. So just in nice and slow, out nice and slow. Just starting off
with 10 to 15 of these. If they become easy, you get to 20 – 25, then you can go to a more
resistive band. Now I’m gonna switch sides, just so I don’t have to move the band, but
you would still be doing the same side, and now go the other way. So this time, your hand
is gonna be in towards your stomach, elbow’s still by your side, still at about that 90
degree angle, still thumb up, still wrist in neutral position, and now you’re gonna
pull it open this way. And then slowly come back in. So again, you don’t have to go all
the way out, you don’t have to feel like you have to pull it out this far, just come til
it’s right in front of your body, almost perpendicular to your chest area. And then slowly come back
in. So again, same thing, starting off with 10 – 15, work up to 20 – 25. If that becomes
easy, get a more resistive band. Alright, wow, look at that, that just came off so nice.
And the last one is gonna be a bicep curl. So again, you’re working that bicep muscles
and tendon. Step on the band. Make sure you’re stepping on it hard so it doesn’t come back
and pop you. Keep your elbow again by your side. And then just slowly pull all the way
up towards your arm. So get a full motion and come all the way back down. So if you
want to stand up doing it, you can, cause you want that full motion all the way through.
And just nice and controlled squeeze it there, a little hold, and then slowly come back down.
So again, starting off 10 – 15 and working your way up from there. So there you have
it. Those were your stretches and exercises for the bicipital tendonitis, or biceps tendonitis.

Today I am going to show you a fantastic biceps workout that you can do at home, with nothing but resistance bands. The great thing is you can take these resistance bands when you are traveling and do this workout anywhere. Now onto the exercises for this biceps workout with resistance bands.
Exercise #1… Bicep Curls. Stand in the middle of the resistance to make sure that the resistance is equal for both arms. Have your palms facing upward and the do curls. Keep your elbows stationary and use good form. The great thing about resistance bands as opposed to dumbbells is you can’t cheat. You aren’t going to be using your back, or using the weights as momentum. The resistance bands help you to utilize good form in this bicep workout.
Exercise #2… Concentration Curls. Most of the time I am going to have you work both arms at the same time. For this exercise, I want you to focus on working one arm at a time. Sit down and wrap the resistance band around your foot. We are going to work the opposite arm as the foot with the resistance band. Do the reps slowly to get a good time under tension. TIME UNDER TENSION puts more stress on the muscle, and it will help grow your muscles when they recover. That will help you get bigger biceps.
Exercise #3… Hammer-Grip Curl. Same as the first exercise…only difference being that your palms will be facing inward for the entire range of motion. Use slow controlled movements and use your mind muscle connection to keep your elbows in one place. That will the focus of the resistance will be on the biceps.
Exercise #4… Superman Curls. For this exercise you will use the anchor for the resistance band. We are going to anchor it in a door jam. You can do this exercise one arm at a time, and pull the band out so you already have tension on the cable. Keep your elbow still and slowly bring your hand to your ear in a controlled movement. You want to focus on just contracting the bicep muscle.
The goal is to hit the muscle from different angles to hit as many different muscle fibers as we can.
