The girl in the pic above might have bigger biceps that you do right now. But we'll show her, won't we?

The girl in the pic above might have bigger biceps that you do right now. But you’re about to get bigger ones in no time flat.

In my opinion, the best beginner’s workout for skinny guys to gain muscle for the arms are what we call simple isolation exercises.

This is not saying that there is a best beginner’s workout for skinny guys to gain muscle for their arms, but  these are what I recommend as one of the most effective workouts to target your biceps and triceps development.

As I’ve said before, in my opinion, there is no best workout for that works for all.

What this means it, we isolate the workout to target a specific muscle group at a time by doing a motion that utilizes only 1 joint in the body. Hence the term, isolation exercises.

What this does is it makes the workouts very simple for beginners and it works out the particular target muscle group effectively.

A lot of people around the internet are against isolated exercises and workouts mainly because they target very little muscle and some even claim that this does not develop functional strength.  It’s true that compounds exercises are great and are far better than isolated workouts, to serve a particular purpose. But in this case, if you want bigger arms, focus on isolated movement first.

If you start out with compound exercises such as deadlifts, good mornings, bench presses, chin ups you might end up doing the wrong execution the first time. And if you are only targeting your arms, it’s best to isolate the movement only to your arms.

Here is Why:

The chin-up is a great workout that works the back , the core, the forearms, the shoulders, as well as the biceps. However, doing a chin-up heavily focuses on your back rather than your arms.

Also, doing this exercise will greatly exhaust you because it utilizes several stabilizer muscles such as the shoulders, the forearms, the lower back, the core, etc.

You won’t be able to do as many of these chin ups as you would do a bicep curl.

Let’s say the chin-up puts a load of 55 pounds on your biceps, making it as if you are doing a bicep curl with a 27.5 lbs dumbbell.

The problem however that you can only do so many chin-ups. And if your main focus is your arms, you’d need to work your bicep more.

Bottom line:

Compounds exercises work your arms as well, but they cannot target your arms muscles as good as good old arms exercises below.

So, If What are the 5 Best Beginner’s Workout For Skinny Guys To Gain Muscle For Muscular Arms

Cable Curl for the bicep. Do them slowly in reps of 10 per set, with increasing weight per set.

 

Cable Pushdown for the tricep. Do them slowly in proper form for 10 reps per set, with increasing weight per set.

Tricep kickback for the tricep. Do them slowly with shoulders locked behind your back in sets of 10 repetitions each.

Cable or Dumbell Concentration Curls for the Brachialis. Do 10 reps for not less than 3 sets with increasing weight.

For the forearm do slow hammer curls of 10 reps for each set with increasing weight. Remember do it slowly on the way down.

Here is also an intermediate arms workout program you might want to give a shot once you’re done with the basics.
