    well you can buy dumbbells and do some slow curls.and the pain you are getting is normal,means you are doing it right.it will go away as you continue to do it.keep on it and youll have results,just dont quit when you think its not working,cause it is!

    hopes this helps.pce

    The pain you are feeling is from your pecs being sore. Pushups are primarily a chest exercise which workout your pectoral muscles.

    The best way to get big arms is to plenty of bicep and tricep exercises. All kinds of curls, barbell, dumbell, hammer, etc, are great for your biceps. Tricep extentions, kickbacks, skull crushers, etc are excellent exercises to work on your triceps. If you want to work on them without any weights, you can do pullups(they are the ones with your palm facing you) for biceps and dips for triceps. Look at the following sites for more exercises for biceps and triceps.

    Would weights count as machines?

    Participate in a sport that works your arms, like basketball or swimming.

    Pulls ups work a lot better.

    and you'll have pain

    until your muscles are strong enough to handle it.

    "No pain, No gain."

    yeah . . serious quote haha

    I'm working out a lot before I have to go to Basic..

    and Push ups are a lot more tiring than Pull ups

    Less pain, more gain lol

    try pullups as well. Also just hanging from a bar for a bit after you are done with pullups also helps.
