BicepsThe biceps brachii commonly known as the biceps, is a two-headed muscle that lies on the upper arm between the shoulder and the elbow. Both heads arise on the scapula and join to form a single muscle belly which is attached to the upper forearm. While the biceps crosses both the shoulder and elbow joints, its main function is at the latter where it flexes the forearm at the elbow and supinates the forearm. Both these movements are used when opening a bottle with a corkscrew: first biceps unscrews the cork (supination), then it pulls the cork out (flexion). from wiki

Triceps The triceps brachii muscle (Latin for “three-headed muscle of the arm”) is the large muscle on the back of the upper limb of many vertebrates. It is the muscle principally responsible for extension of the elbow joint (straightening of the arm).

Now I’m focusing on biceps & triceps exercises that can be done without the need of costly exercise machines, all you need are dumbbells & a good chair to do tricep dips on.

Triceps Extension or also called Triceps Kickbacks
I like to start my workout with this exercise because it’s a good warm up for my arms also is great triceps exercise.

Start with the elbow bent at 45 degree angle or more & fully straighten the elbow when extension.
Hold the arm in straighten position for a second.
Use the breathing I talk about in this video.

Triceps Overhead Extension or also called 2-arms Triceps Extensions.
This exercise will allow you to use more weight than the Triceps Kickback would let you.
