Toss aside those weights and get back to basics with a bodyweight-only workout. Without all those heavy weights, you’ll give your body and joints a much-needed break. By altering your body angle and position and getting creative with the right tools at your gym, you can still get the necessary stimulus for real growth in your biceps, triceps, shoulders, and forearms. Substitute your normal arm exercises with these 9 bodyweight moves for the next few weeks and watch your arms grow like weeds.
Dips are a phenomenal exercise that not only build your pecs and shoulders, but also blast your triceps and forearms. Get on a dip bar, keep your chest out, and lower yourself until your elbows make a 90-degree angle. At the bottom, drive back up. To keep pressure off your neck, look at a spot on the ground a few feet in front of you.
