WhatsApp: What does the flexed biceps emoji mean?

A strong arm showing the biceps muscle, when should you send it on WhatsApp?

It is increasingly common to use emojis to replace phrases in WhatsApp conversations and other platforms, but on many occasions these are sent without knowing the real meaning, as in the case of the flexed bicep, have you used it?

The flexed biceps emoji shows a strong arm with the biceps muscle tight and ripped. It is regularly used in its direct or indirect sense, since it can be sent to complement conversations related to exercise, sports, bodybuilding, fitness and physical strength.

In the indirect sense it refers to the strength, either mental or sentimental, on characteristics such as perseverance, ambitions and the potential of people. In addition, many users send it to show their support or trust in someone.

You have to be very careful with the emoji, since it can look somewhat rude or smug when, for example, a person does not have very good results in the gym. If the person is angry, it is also not recommended to send the biceps, as it can be interpreted as an invitation to fight.

The push-up is the universal symbol of strength, so it’s no surprise that it’s the icon of the official Snapchat account of famous actor and bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The flexed bicep was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and a few years later it was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
