How to Get Very Strong Arms

There are several advantages to having strong arms. A strong pair of hands are useful in everyday life and men with overly strong arms give the impression that their body is much stronger than it actually is. In a pushing contest between two men, the one with a weaker body (weaker legs, back and core) can manage to push back the stronger one if he has stronger arms. By using his superior arm strength to push the opponent’s arms back he would ruin his balance and render his superior body strength futile, because one simply can’t push with all of his might if his arms are being held back.
