The exercises that you can use to increase the size of your arm muscles are dumbbell curls, standing barbell curls, incline curls, preacher curls and concentration curls. For beginners to these exercises it is important that you get some help with the technique that you will use. Doing the exercises with the wrong technique will not get you the results that you are after. You should also use care so that you do not injure yourself while you are doing these exercises.

Many people use push ups to get an increase in the size of their arm muscles, but there is a different exercise that is similar. A push down starts off in a plank position and lower yourself to the floor. Hold the position for a few seconds and then raise yourself back up to the beginning position.

Another exercise that you can do is triceps dips. These are done on the edge of a chair. Raise yourself up using your arms and hold the position. Lower yourself back down onto the chair. Free weights are another good way to increase the size of your biceps muscles. To do this you stand straight and hold the weight in one of your hands. Lift the weight to your chest and then back down. The weight that you should use for these exercises is a five, ten or fifteen pound weight.

Using closed grip bench presses can work on your biceps and triceps all in one exercise. Lay down on the bench and keep your hands close together more than you would for a typical bench press. Keep the elbows tucked in and your wrists straight. Lower the bar to your chest and then straight up. You should also use hand gripping exercises to work on the strength of your hands and forearms.

Proper nutrition is important for your arm building workout. Keep your intake of fatty foods limited and don't consume too much alcohol. The usual food pyramid is a good thing to keep in mind when you are working on your nutrition plan.

The balanced diet that you will follow will use protein, dairy, grains, fruits and vegetables and fat. Body builders don't usually have to worry about overeating. The muscles that you are working on will be burning up the calories most of the time.

Most experts agree that you should eat more protein while you are working on your muscles. If you are not able to get enough protein in your diet, you will break down your muscle tissues until it gets what it requires. Get some good information about nutrition when you are bodybuilding.
