Hail to the Dinosaurs!
Many years ago a young guy at a gym where
I trained asked me about arm blasting.
He wanted big guns, and he was doing
everything he could to get them --
or, at least, everything he read
about in the muscle mags.
He did about a dozen different kinds
of curls, and almost as many triceps
He did 10 x 10 and 8 x 8 and 12 x 12,
and wanted to know if he should try
20 x 20.
He trained his arms 5 days a week, and
wondered if he should do 6 days a week --
or perhaps do double arm workouts on
He didn't do any squats, deadlifts or
other leg or back work. I asked him why,
and he said he needed to save his energy
for arm blasting.
He asked me if he should add anything.
I told him to add Himalyan curls.
"What are those?" he asked. "I never heard
That was an opportunity, so I sold it hard in
language he would understand.
"They're the number one kind of curl," I told
him. "But you have to work up to them. You
have to follow a special routine to lay the
foundation. You know -- enervate the
ions and prime the galactoids."
"That sounds great!" he said.
So I knew he was ready for some serious
training. The galactoids line always works.
Whatever galactoids are.
And then I laid it on him.
The weekly workouts.
How to progress from one program to another.
How to build big arms by training for strength and
power instead of a bunny pump.
I even took him through his first workout. We did
squats. Presses. Rowing. The good stuff. 5 x 5.
It flattened him.
Amazingly, he stuck with it. And he ended up with
some pretty good arm development -- and about
40 pounds of muscle all over his body.
The best part is, he never asked me about those
Which is darn good, because the truth is -- I have
no idea what they are!
As always, thanks for reading and have a great day.
If you train today, make it a good one!
Yours in strength,
P.S. It doesn't have any Himalyan curls, but Dinosaur
Arm Training has everything else you need to do some
serious arm building:
