Everyone craves to build those well toned dream arms, wish to wear sleeveless and flaunt those magnificent shoulders of yours, but aren’t really aware of how to make this happen. Getting magnanimous arms is the every fitness freak’s dream but without the proper knowledge one can be trapped and can develop appalling disproportions in their arms. So, before you get going with the task, you need to understand your body, your muscles and gain proper knowledge before you even you start your workout.

So we put some light on the various arm muscles as their knowledge is central to the art of muscle building. Here are the 5 Arm Muscles You Ought To Know:

arm muscles anatomy

deltoid, biceps, triceps, flexors, extensors



Biceps are located on the front part of the upper arm between the elbow and the shoulder. It helps in elbow flexing and the curling motion. With the help of barbell curls and dumbbell curls, you can improve your biceps into larger ones.

biceps brachii, brachialis, brachioradialis

biceps brachii, brachialis, brachioradialis


Brachialis is a small muscle located over the lower segment of the upper arm that joins the bottom half of the bicep to the forearm. It assists in elbow flexing and one can make it stronger with hammer curls and reverse grip barbell curl exercises.

Forearm Muscle:

Forearm muscle is situated under the belly of the forearm. It helps in turning the hand down. Forearm muscle can be made strong using palm up barbell wrist curls.


It is located on the top and outer segment of the forearm. The function of brachioradialis is to flex the arm at the elbow. Exercising “palm down barbell wrist curls” over the bench shows positive results for well toned brachioradialis.


Triceps muscles are located on the back sector of the upper arm stuck between the elbow and the shoulder. Extension of the elbow is the main function of the triceps. Exercises like lying triceps press and close grip bench press can reinforce your triceps.

All types of rep ranges, high (15-52), moderate (8-12) and low (4-6) must be used for training your upper arms. As each rep range has its own significance, it is imperative to exercise all ranges to quench the thirst of bigger arms. Very strong sets of high rep muscles are suggested to get the expansion of your forearms.

We recommend that you should perform all exercises with proper guidance. Absence of adequate supervision can lead to zilch outcome and there is also risk of injury.

Gaining bigger arms is not a day’s task. Hard work, patience and proper diet are the key elements to achieve the results. While workout, always put on a cut sleeves t-shirt so that you can observe your muscles working and getting pumped. You might find this suggestion bizarre but believe us it always works to encourage you.
