Let's Build those Guns!

Simple bicep curls and easy tricep kickbacks will build strong and beautiful arms if done correctly 2-3 times a week. Biceps, also known as the biceps brachii (the front of the arm) are responsible for arm flexion. Triceps, also known as the triceps brachii (the back of the arm) are responsible for arm extension. 

Before starting a new workout, always consult your doctor first and seek a fitness professional demonstrate how to do each exercise correctly before hitting the gym on your own. 

Today, I will demonstrate how to do a bicep curl followed by a tricep kickback. Working both the front and back of the arm simultaneously will build strong arms evenly preventing any future injuries when participating in day-to-day activities or your favorite sport.
