A host of celebrities have been working very hard to achieve their fitness goals and also sharing glimpses of their journeys while at it. Among the many stars to do so is Telugu actor Mahesh Babu who recently shared a picture of himself after an arm day workout.
He captioned the post, “Arm day”. Take a look.
The actor’s post was soon flooded with fire emojis from friends and fans, considering he seldom gives fitness updates. One wrote, “Baby is on fire”, while Hrithik Roshan’s trainer Kris Gethin commented, “Looking good, bro”!
The actor’s personal trainer, Dr Minash Gabriel, also took to Instagram to share that the Sarkaru Vaari Paata actor is putting in the requisite efforts in the gym. “@urstrulymahesh putting in the work! Stay-tuned to a see him like never before,” Dr Gabriel wrote.
Why is arm day an important part of the fitness routine?
Arm training involves exercises that target the muscles in the arms, including biceps, triceps, and forearms. Training these muscles can help you build strength and also tone the arms, said Varun Rattan, co-founder, The Body Science Academy, Noida.
“Your biceps are the muscles that run along the front of the upper arms. They are responsible for flexing elbows — the movement you use when you do a bicep curl. Triceps are the muscles that run along the back of your upper arms. They are responsible for extending the elbow — the movement you use when doing a tricep kickback. Forearms are the muscles that run along the lower part of your arms. They are responsible for wrist flexion and extension, the movements you use when you do a wrist curl or wrist extension,” explained Rattan.
Why is it necessary to train the arms?
There’s no denying that performing exercises like pullups, shoulder presses, and bench presses provide more strength benefits compared to curls and triceps extensions. However, some individuals might not see a significant improvement in their biceps or triceps by only performing these compound exercises. “Such individuals require focused arm training. Strengthening weak links is crucial to enhance performance in larger lifts. At times, isolated training is essential to fortify specific body parts,” noted Rattan.
Arm training for different fitness levels
Arm training is suitable for all fitness levels. Beginners should start with free weights or machines and progress to bodyweight as they become more comfortable.
Advanced practitioners can incorporate advanced exercises such as plyometrics into their arm workouts. “They should also focus on increasing the intensity of their workouts, such as increasing the weight or reps,” Rattan suggested.
How often should you train your arms?
The frequency of your arm workouts will depend on your fitness level and goals. “If your arms are too sore to perform bench press, pull-ups, or rows, then you’re probably not giving your arms enough time to recover,” Rattan mentioned.
