When it comes to building arm muscles, there are several workouts you can try out to increase the size. You can try weight lifting and other exercises, but when you have limited access to gym equipment or prefer to work out at home, there are other options you can try. It’s possible to employ kettlebell workouts for the arms, but it’s crucial to realize that they don’t work the arms the same way as traditional bodybuilding exercises. Instead of targeting specific muscles, kettlebell training should concentrate on movement patterns. 

If you prefer to do your workouts at home and are looking for the best solutions for your home gym, you might need to consider getting kettlebells. The kettlebells are an alternative instrument that can be used in place of heavyweights. Leanness and strength go hand in hand in building great arms. In other words, your workouts should be geared toward burning body fat, not just in your arms, through intense conditioning and developing real strength with the right exercises. 

Some kettlebell exercises focus on the arm more than other body parts. Here are some of the best ones you should try.

  • stand with the kettlebell held at 90°, 
  • Press the kettlebell overhead in a fluid motion, making sure your palm is not facing you
  • Repeat this exercise over again.
