Non-traditional arm workout Last week I put up two posts on how to get better results from your arm workouts and today I want to give you a quick two exercise workout that will work you arms in a non-traditional way.

I say "non-traditional" because most people think of curls and extensions as your normal arm exercises. Typically, the two exercises I'm going to give you today would be considered back and chest/shoulder movements, but what you may not know is that they are also powerful arm exercises.

In the "chin-up" you will be really focusing your pulling motion with your biceps and in the "dips" you’ll be targeting your triceps.

Here’s the non-traditional arm workout in action:

1A. Chin-ups (assisted if needed) x 10 repetitions or AMAP (as many reps as possible)
1B. Dips (assisted if needed) x 10-15 repetitions or AMAP (as many reps as possible)

After you finish both exercises you can rest for 90 seconds and repeat 2-3 more times. This whole arm workout should only take you 10-minutes to complete and you get the added benefit of working your entire upper body at the same time!
