We've compiled Jose Raymond’s five favorite arm exercises (two for triceps, three for biceps) plus a sample workout for bigger pipes, straight out of his physique-building playbook. Hit these moves along with those for chest and you’ll be on your way to having a knockout upper body of your own.


START | Stand holding a dumbbell in one hand at your side with your wrist in a neutral position (palms facing in).

ACTION | Flex your elbow to curl one dumbbell without turning your palm up—keep it in the neutral position. Squeeze your biceps and forearms at the top, then lower the weight to the start position. Perform 12 to 15 reps, then repeat with the opposite arm.

RAYMOND SAYS | “I use different angles on hammer curls. On the first five reps I may come across my body, then on the next five reps I’ll curl the dumbbell straight up, and then after that I’ll just pump out as many as I can to finish.”
