    I feel as though my arms could use some work. What sort of exercises can one do to get bigger arms?

    I've been working on my biceps by holding the bar you use for bench press and curling it up and down. I've also been doing some triceps exercises: one where you stand up at the lat pull down machine, another one where you sit down with a dumbell behind your head and you move it up and down.

    Sorry if I am not too familiar with the actual name of the exercises.

    check out bodybuilding.com , they have all sorts of articles and demo vids to guide you.

    also a quick search on You Tube will list you tons of videos too.

    i'm not an expert but maybe starting with compound exercises to strengthen your whole body as well as arms would be better than isolated ones .

    consistent pull ups and chin ups will work wonder but you have to be consistent, good luck
