There are “no sweat” secrets to getting ripped. But if you’re willing to do it, there are easy ways to pump up that bulging biceps and pecs. A twist on the biceps curl will also work the muscles that give shoulders a chiselled look. While holding a dumbbell, rest the back of your arm on a support pad, palm face up then slowly raise the dumbbell and lower to the starting point. This preacher curl exercise is a good workout tip for men who want to build their muscles in less time. It’s a good idea to check with a doctor first before starting any fitness program.
