One of the muscle groups you see getting worked most often in the gym are the biceps. This muscle, along with the chest, abs and thighs are found on the front of the body. Many have a tendency to put more time in training these areas because it’s the first thing someone notices.
For stronger biceps, think about changing up your exercises more often than larger muscle groups. The following list of arm exercises are the most popular bicep and forearm exercises, based on usage from the Jefit community.
Anatomy of the Arm
The anterior upper arm is made up of the bicep muscle, which has two heads. The deep muscles of the arm include the coracobrachialis and brachialis. The posterior aspect includes one muscle, triceps brachii.
- Biceps Brachii (short head)
- Biceps Brachii (long head)
- Triceps Brachii (three heads)
- Forearm (consists of 20 muscles)
There are 30 bones that make up the area of the upper arm, forearm and hand. The majority of the bones, twenty-seven of them, are found in the wrist and hand.
