bicep workout

arrgghhh i am in my lazy mode for gym... and i am feeling bad to worse each day... :( i think that is why i am feeling tired.. :o dammnnn it... i must... continue my workout..!! let's motivate ourselves ;) this is one of the workout that i do at the gym for bicep :) but i prefer to have my hubby around coz my left arm has a problem :P


Many guys like to work out their biceps since biceps are exposed when we are wearing sleeveless shirt or when we are shirtless. So, many have spent much time in training biceps, especially with barbell biceps curl. However, most people do not get as much as they can out of barbell curls because of the terrible form. Yes, with the proper form, barbell curl can actually be the most important biceps workout. In fact, I do it as the first workout for my biceps.

Biceps curl is an isolation exercise which only biceps are involved. We have many variations to this superb biceps exercise, but let’s stick to the basic one in this post.

Steps:
  1. Stand holding a barbell with both hands shoulder width apart(underhand grip).
  2. Palms should be face up in the grip.
  3. Keep the chest out and back straight
  4. The bar is at arms length almost touching your upper thighs.
  5. Lift the bar in a slow, steady arc until forearms almost touching biceps.
  6. Keep the elbows close to your sides at all times.
  7. Lower the bar in a slow arc back in a controlled manner causing the biceps to resist the weight as much as possible to the starting position (until your arms are nearly straight).
  8. Inhale up, exhale down.
Tips:
This exercise is likely the most common to be done with terrible form.

  • Do not lean back or swinging the weight when you curl the bar up.
  • Your back should remain straight and upright at all times.
  • For the most part, the only part of the body that should be moving during this exercise is the lower half of your arms.

today was the first time that i did my groceries shopping online. i am a happy mom, wife.. etc.. hahaha :D then lisa said she was hungry and she feels like eating at Pops. we asked joey if he wants to come along.. and as usual, his first choice would be his anime. :p anyway, it was supposed to be my early dinner but i failed miserably... i had half portion of chinese fried rice. okay, here's my review about the restaurant. lisa has been promoting this place to me for a long time. date of visit: 24 Jan 2015location: PoP's Eatery, Lot 28055, Jalan Wangsa Delima, Pusat Bandar Wangsa Maju, Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju. Tel: 03-4144 3162place & decor: simple and nice looks cosy for lepakking. cleanliness: 9 out of 10. restaurant service: efficient, quite fast. maybe because we were the only customer at that time. we noticed that they have too many workers. they could cut down into half to cut cost :p #justsayingfood: food was yummy... it exceeds my expectation... price: we are okay w…

i have been thinking about it for many many years.. when i was much younger.. when i told my mom to have it on, my mom would say, "tak payah cantik2, nanti lupa diri" ... and i remembered that until now.. and i am already a mom. i guess the situation is different now.. i would just say that, "it's expensive sayang.. " which is much easier to swallow :) well anyway... today, i became the iron lady!! hahaha :D LOL... errmm i am also know as 'rimau' in the office so.. what the heck lah.. :P
