    Fucking huge arms. How do you train that part of the arms that i circled?


    I try to do lawn mowers but they won't work for me.. my biceps are awesome but the back of the arm over the triceps sucks.. is it still considered triceps?
    by lawn mowers do you mean bent over rows? If so that works lats and bicep more than delts. good posterior delt exercises include standing front rows, cable reverse flies, etc.

    The lawn mower i'm talking about is the one where you lie on your belly and you lift a single weight in the middle

    I found a picture my ex took of me when I was just a couple of months into working out. It'd be better if I could take another picture in the same location/pose but this one is the closest recent one I have.





    It was certainly a boost to see how much I've changed, but unfortunately I've been sick as of late and have missed gym for almost a week now ahhhhhhhgsdg.
    OH SHIT BRUCE LEE WATCH OUT.

    Fucking huge arms. How do you train that part of the arms that i circled?

    The amount you lift isn't important, it's the amount you improve.

    yeah, my appendix burst and i walked around with it like that for almost 2 weeks. I lost about 40lbs and had some pretty major surgery. I don't know my stats for sure but thats just what im guessing. I might be stronger but I doubt it. Everything went down about a plate im assuming.

    Ye so like

    I'm 6'1''
    Weight: 72-74 kg (I can't remember now jesus christ)

    but here's the thing

    I struggle with benching 40 kilos (that's like uhm 88 pounds?)

    I'm thinking of doing strength training rather than trying to get BEEGER first

    WHaT sAy the gurus of the forum (first time I've actually participated in gym activities in mein life, been working out for 4 weeks)

    Duh nonikai.

    Strength for about a year or a year and a half, then use volume training.

    Kind of pointless to get volume without a base.

    Well guys,

    Repped my old bench max 5 times today for the last set of my 3x5.

    Squats are slowly going up (just finally fixed form problems and began going past parallel)

    Oh and ive gained around 14 pounds in 2 months, and my arms are looking swole as fuck compared to before
