hey guys im looking to build my arm strength so i can lift heavy items and saw through wood better for my new job. everything i google is about building muscle for big arms and id rather focus on building strength as im female and that wouldn't look good. i understand i will get some muscle anyway
so far i have push ups and arm curls with small weights are these any good? anything else i can do or anything else better i should do instead?

ok guys, strength and size are 2 different things so stop saying they are the same. In basic terms, to gain size u train heavy with a low rep count. But for more strength, u do a more intensity with a high rep count. But less than for an endurance workout which has even higher reps or static loads. So for u, i would recommend doing higher reps and static loads. So for arms do full bicep curls, half curls for fast twitch muscles, static bicep hold, grip strength, wrist curls, tricep band overhead stretch, kickbacks, etc. U may also need shoulders cos that works closely your arms also. Hope this helps a little.1
