The arm specialization workout from Dan Trink for biceps and triceps called 2 Tickets to the Gun Show. An arm workout.
It seems that everybody these days is jumping on the latest magical fitness phenomenom. I can’t go outside without hearing words like functional training, CrossFit, Metabolic training, or P90X.
Before you get sucked into a trend — think back and try to remember why you got into strength training to begin with. Didn’t you dream of packing on slabs of muscle? Or a ton of strength? Or maybe you were like me and really wanted to get big, veiny, sleeve tearing, girl seducing arms.

Everywhere I go it seems to be a show. I catch girls looking up from their phones (probably texting their boyfriends) to check out my sleeve popping, vein bursting, should-be-illegal gun show.
