Bicep Exercises of the Animal Kingdom
When most people think of bicep
think of movements like bicep curls using free weights. However, these
kinds of exercises are completely un-natural and un-animal like. Humans
evolved over thousands of years (just like animals in the wild)
training their entire body using nothing but their own bodyweight. If
you want to develop natural, powerful strength, as opposed to the
phony, puffed up arms of the bodybuilder, you need an exercise that
will not only train your biceps, but your entire body as well.
One of the
best natural arm exercises that you can do are one leg in the air
pushups. These will work you entire arm (not just your biceps) as well
as your shoulders. These kinds of pushups are about as close as you can
get to doing a one-armed pushup without actually doing them. This is
definitely an advanced exercise. However, when you can do them, you
know you are making progress.
Follow These Steps to Perform One Leg In the Air Pushups
- Start with your hands on the floor and your
arms extended. They should be about shoulder-width apart.
- Your feet should be together.
- The starting position is like that of a regular
- Lift your left leg in the air and turn the
right side of your body downward as you lower your right side towards
- Push yourself back up.
- Lift your right leg in the air and repeat with
the left arm.
- Inhale as you lower yourself. Exhale as you
come back to the starting position.
- Do as many repetitions as you can.
