A Bit of Arm Anatomy

    The biceps is actually a smaller muscle then the triceps. It is on the front of the upper arms. There are two heads of the biceps muscle (hence the bi in biceps). Beneath the arms biceps is the brachialis, a flat muscle group that runs about half way up the upper arm bone from the elbow joint. From the rear you can see the brachialis as a well-defined band of muscle between the triceps and biceps when a muscular bodybuilder flexes his/her arm.

   The triceps is a three-headed muscle that is on the back of the upper arm (hence the name tri in triceps).

   There are three primary muscle groups in the forearms. The forearm flexors lie along the inner sides of the forearms. The forearm extensors run along the outer sides of the forearms. And the supinators that lie on the upper and outer sections of the forearms.

   It is essential that when you do any exercise that you perform the movements correctly, if you donít you will receive less then optimum benefit from the exercise and/or you may injure your arm. It is very difficult to unlearn bad exercise habits, so it is best to learn the correct arm exercise technique from the very start.

    The key to developing good looking arms is to avoid overtraining these small muscle groups. The arms are used as secondary muscles in almost all chest, back, and shoulder exercises. For example, the arms biceps are used when doing any type of rowing movement for the back. The arms triceps are used when doing any type of pressing movement for the chest and/or shoulders. And the forearms are used whenever you have to grip the weights.
