Many lifters who want to increase bulk frequently list bigger biceps and triceps as a goal. While having large arms may not necessarily increase your lifting capacity, they can certainly help you when pressing and pulling heavy objects.

So what exercises are the greatest for bulking up the arms? It is advised to incorporate a variety of motions, including pull-ups, dips, barbell curls, and dumbbell curls, which cover the entire rep range, when trying to develop bigger biceps and triceps during a bulking process (6-20 reps). For optimum growth, exercises should be spread out over a couple of days.
