    Building strong, muscular arms takes more than hard work and dedication. It also takes a plan—one rooted in science, based on the latest research, and proven to deliver results. Massive, Muscular Arms Ebook With CE Exam brings you a plan and so much more.

    Massive, Muscular Arms takes an in-depth look at the underlying principles of biomechanics and anatomy to provide you with a better understanding of why your clients plateau and how small adjustments to the most common arm exercises can make them more effective. You will learn about the importance of training for strength and why low-rep strength work is a necessary component to building more aesthetically impressive arms.

    Packed with over 65 exercises designed to work deep into the muscles, you will be able to build programs for your clients or use one of the six featured training programs (for novices and experienced lifters alike) that are designed to blast through plateaus and take arm development to the next level. Safety considerations for more advanced exercises and advice on how to perform exercises correctly and reduce risk of injury are also included.

    Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
