We all want chiseled stronger arms, right? Check out these two arm exercises to get yourself a pair of pythons Popeye would be jealous of.
Side note: to anyone not looking to get bigger... lifting weights doesn't do that. Too many calories does. I am trying to put on muscle mass, so I am eating an excess of calories. Dial in your calories based on your goals... I digress.
For the most part the basic exercises work the best: squats, deadlifts, bench press, etc. However, if you've been training for a long time, sometimes small tweaks or variations can help you to get out of a rut and continue seeing progress.
If you're still relatively new to training both of these variations could be staples in your workouts. As with any exercise, leave your ego at the door, start light, and learn to do the exercise correctly!

Exercise 2: DB/ BB Z Press
This spin on the classic shoulder press completely takes your legs out of the equation and makes you have to brace your core! Try: 3-4 sets of 6-12 reps.
