    Introduction: Maintaining muscle mass and muscle strength is very important in the upper extremities. The building strength and muscle mass in the arms are very important for the activities of everyday life. This research is to estimate the effect of short-term heavy strengthening training on the size of the muscles of upper limbs for different volunteers. This research is to find out whether short-term training has a good result in the development of biceps. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 normal healthy volunteers were selected. Their bicep circumferences were noted. Then, the same volunteers were subjected to heavy strengthening training for the development of their biceps for 1 month. The volunteers and their biceps sizes were monitored regularly. After the period of 1 month, again the bicep circumference of these same 30 volunteers was measured and noted. The pre- and post-training data were compared and statistically analyzed. Results: The mean bicep circumference of the pre-strengthening training was 30.5 cm. The mean bicep circumference of the post-strengthening training was 33 cm. At the end of this comparative study of the pre- and post-training reports, there was an increase in the bicep circumference of the volunteers. The value of t = 8.233476. The value of P < 0.00001. The result is statistically significant at P ≤ 0.05. Conclusion: At the end of this study period, it is concluded that the short-term heavy strengthening training is having a good result in the development of muscle size.
