Thickness is something which usually comes with time as your muscles mature however there are certain things you can do to help develop overall muscle thickness! There are also some mistakes you need to avoid which will potentially slow down the process of building thick and dense muscle!

So what is thickness? It is developing a physique which looks more 3 dimensional, where your muscles look full from all angles. For example, a lot of the time you will see people from the side and their arms may look big, but front on their arms are paper thin! That is a lack of muscle thickness. Here are my top 4 tips to getting a thicker set of arms in the shortest time possible!

Tip 1 –

Don’t get too carried away with isolation movements! These are great for building muscle, yet compound movements are the best way to pack on thick muscle mass! To develop thick biceps, try using heavy hammer curls instead of dumbbell curls every other week! Doing this will certainly add overall thickness to your arms and it will also help you develop some juicy forearms!

Tip 2 –

Hit barbell curls every week without fail! Barbell curls are a fantastic mass builder for your arms and they really promote thickness in the area as well! Opt for a close grip so that you are hitting the outer portion of your biceps. The outer heads of the biceps are often neglected; stimulating this area will ensure that front on your arms look THICK!

Tip 3 –

Triceps are a huge proportion of the arm, and if you have weak triceps you won’t have a nice thick look at all! People go over board with isolation movements for triceps! Again you need to use them, but don’t neglect compounds. Hit the close grip bench press and straight bar pushdowns every week! When you do pushdowns, put your hands close together, this will hit the inner portion of your triceps, giving a very thick and 3 dimensional look to your arms!

Tip 4 –

Your body weight is often more challenging than any weights resistance on a ‘like for like’ machine. Therefore make sure you perform close grip dips on your triceps day, this exercise is fantastic for developing thick triceps! If you can lift your own body weight easy, just add weight plates to your lap and this will soon make it harder!

Following these tips will help you add real thickness to your arms very quickly. It isn’t just the size of your arms; it is the density and thickness which looks really impressive! Now you know what to do, get to it!!!

Dreaming about a toned and curvy sexy butt?  No worries believe me, you can make it!  With training and nutrition you can finally achieve what you have always wanted.

I am a Scandinavian girl who naturally has quite a straight skinny body. Personally, I always had a small and flat butt… I was the girl thinking can I ever get nice shaped curvy bikini body…And finally, thanks to all my hard work I can now see the results!!! It is like designing…Thinking what exercises you should do more of and how to improve the weak parts of your body.

I have the type of body which loses muscle easily and just gets skinny so I try to avoid long duration cardio. Instead I concentrate training hard with weights, sprinting and plyometric training. So basically I am trying to shock my muscles by using different methods, using my legs and buttocks different ways to maximise the muscle stimulation!

Exercises I find the best and have provided the best results for me are deep Squats, walking lunges, one leg lunge or incline lunge, sumo squat, jump squat, step up, Romanian dead lift, Bulgarian split squats or one leg press.  I train lower body twice a week and vary the exercises every few weeks.  My target every time is to get that little bit of soreness so I know I have really used my muscles and that it is working.

And do not forget stretching!  That helps with circulation and good circulation helps with cellulite. Long stretches for problem areas will improve the flexibility and circulation and at help eliminate cellulite.  Stretching also helps to improve your muscle size. If the tissues around the muscles are really tight they might limit the amount of space your muscles have to grow.  So it really is an important part of training. That also helps to avoid injuries and soreness after a hard training session.

The most challenging thing is to keep the curves even when the fat percentage is low. To do this you have to make sure when dieting that nutrition is varied and you will get enough protein to avoid muscle loss.  Always when dieting, your nutrition should be well planned to make sure you will get everything you need and keep your body healthy.

So now all you have to do is get in the the gym and train your ‘butt’ off!!!
