4 Arm Workout Tips To Build Thor-Like Biceps & Triceps

Sign in to follow this  


Thor, the Son of Odin and a Norse God according to mythology, has got to be one of the top three Avengers for me and Chris Hemsworth brilliantly plays his character in all the Marvel movies.  

Hemsworth is generally a very fit guy but to play Thor, he took his physique to the next level. The thing that stood out the most were his guns. They looked God-like, especially when he held the Mjolnir, his hammer.

Do you want to build God-like arms just like Thor? Start doing these things:

1. Do Unconventional Exercises Like The Rows, Pull-Ups & Farmers Carry

Your biceps are engaged and activated when you do upper body pull movements. Make rows, pull-ups, chin-ups, etc. a staple of your upper body work.  Along with that, add some unconventional exercises as farmers carry, medicine ball throws, etc.

You can see Chris Hemsworth doing it in this video:

2. Use A Full Range Of Motion

If you are struggling to grow your arms despite training them regularly, your gym partner is your ego. There is no other possible conclusion. Countless times I have seen people load plates on the barbell and not even complete one full rep on a set of 21s.

Stop doing this bullcrap!

Want to grow your arms? Use a full range of motion. You will lift a lighter load but that's okay. It will be effective.

3. Establish A Mind-Muscle Connection

Arnold talks a lot about the importance of this when discussing training. I do agree, partially. 

Mind-muscle connection is fundamentally feeling the muscle when lifting weights. You lift the weight in a controlled way.  It is beneficial when you do isolation work like bis and tris.

4. Work On Both The Heads Of Your Biceps

You have a short head and a long head in your biceps.  If your goal is to build roundness and size, it is important to work them both.

Exercises for the short head:

1. Spider curls

2. Preacher curls

3. Chin-ups

Exercises for the long head:

1. Incline dumbbell curls

2. Cable curls with your shoulders pulled back

3. Drag curls

Here is a sample back and biceps workout you can add to your routine:

Barbell Rows - 3 sets of 6 to 8

Chin-ups - 3 sets of 6 to 8

Seated Rows or Chest supported rows - 3 sets of 8 to 12

Lat pulldowns - 3 sets of 8 to 12

Preacher curls - 3 sets of 12 to 15

Cable curls with shoulders pulled back - 3 sets of 12 to 15

Hammer curls - 3 sets of 12 to 15

Incorporate this in your workout to build godly arms like Thor.
