Your Cart is Empty

Is there a time when you visit the gym that you don’t work on your biceps? After all, they are the poster child for everything bodybuilding. From gyms to supplement makers, a bulging bicep is your assurance that they are the place to go and the products to use.

You can’t say the same for your back muscles. First of all, you can’t see them when you’re working out, even in a mirror, so you don’t get nearly the same satisfaction of watching them pump as you workout. And back muscles are rarely used to advertise anything.

The emphasis on biceps and the neglect of back muscles is kind of unfair. Your back muscles are integral to your balance, posture and for working on just about every other muscle group in your body.

Regular bodybuilders understand the importance of developing your muscles equally throughout your body. Not only does it simply look better to have similar muscle size and definition all over, it reduces your chance of strain and injury.

The relationship between your back muscles and your biceps is really quite simple: without a strong back, your biceps will not develop as well.

And working on your back means working on your biceps too. Back exercises and pulling exercises. Because you pull with your arms, your biceps get a workout while you work on your back.

This mutual dependence makes it possible for you to maximize your workouts by working on both backs and biceps simultaneously. But don’t start jumping for joy because you found yet another reason to work your biceps.

Generally speaking, you want t work on larger muscle groups before smaller. If you do it the other way around, the smaller muscles tire before the larger ones have been properly exercised.

If you want to take advantage of the synergies that exist between your back and biceps, you need to shift the workout load to your back. When you do, you ensure it gets the work it needs to build properly. At the same time, your biceps get well worked doing the back exercises.

So why not work both muscle groups together?

When it comes to building muscle, most people think of protein first. But did you know that it's not just the protein itself that's important, but the specific amino acids that make up that protein? These amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and some of them are considered "essential" because our bodies can't produce them on their own.

The 9 essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. These amino acids cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained through the diet - with either whole food or supplementation.
