So I come to you fellas here simply because the kids on Bodybuilding.com are a joke..
And because.. I need some serious advice.
Been bodybuilding for about 2 years, EXTREMELY hardgainer. I weigh in at 165ish, but am extremely cut. Anyways, I have been having some trouble gaining weight, so I decided to start a new program. Focused specifically on arms, link:
Thought it looked decent, and figured I'd give it a try. Well, I'm beginning to notice (and have noticed in the past, but tried to ignore it) that my biceps simply don't recover very well. Sometimes it takes weeks for my biceps to heal from a workout. IDK why this is.. genetics? I just suck in general... IDK. But I do know that I probably shouldn't continue this workout, simply because I don't wanna injure my arms. I also have a short bicep (doesn't go all the way to my elbow), which, additionally makes it seem small. But.. I've asked all this to ask this:
Would it be beneficial to start a 4 day split where I work Back, Chest, Shoulders and Legs. And just don't work arms? Or work arms every other week? Of course, I could work Triceps w/ chest because they don't have this problem... I honestly don't know what to do... I want some growth, and I'm not getting it. I haven't gotten it in a year and a half.... and quite honestly, its frustrating.
Also, I have a decent diet I've just started.
3 packets oatmeal, 1 greek yogurt with oats/fruit, 2 V8 V-Fusion cans, and a Carnation instant breakfast packet.
High protein snack (2 protein bars 2:1 carb to protein ratio)
Tuna or Ham/cheese sandwhich for lunch.
Tuna or Chicken w/ wheat pasta pre-workout
Chicken/Steak w/ pasta postworkout
115gram carb/25gram protein shake before bed.
8 tablets Universal Beef Aminos
and of course,
my before bed shake.
