    Why not Bi's and Tri's


    I have heard it is bad to train your triceps and biceps on the same day... why is that? or is it bull****?

    There is nothing wrong with training them together. Most like to train them since they are antagonists and can actually increase your strength during your WO. The same applies for chest and back or any training split that is based on a push/pull method.

    Sometimes I do them together, other times I dont. I think its good to change things up from time to time, and I think most would agree.

    I always train them together but once in a while switch it up. I feel what I am doing now training them on the same days is working out fine for me

    I usually do triceps with chest and biceps with back. Recently I switched to doing bis/tris together on their own day. I was able to push/pull a lot more weight by giving them their own day. I would suggest trying it out if you haven't already.

    Oh yeah,Bi's/Tri's/Forearms......thats "arm" day

    Just be sure you don't have chest next in line as your arms will already be taxed....

    Day 1: Arms
    Day 2: Shoulders/Traps
    Day 3: Back
    Day 4: Chest
    Day 5: Legs
    Rest / Rest

    If you see the pattern your just keeping the "pump" moving right along.arms touch shoulders/shoulders touch back/back touches chest/chest touch legs(abs)/legs...And supersets on arm days are great since your hitting three groups,as someone else mentioned.

    And throw abs in couple times a week,But everybody's right its what works for you,I like one body part ed....hit it & hit it hard,get in/out the gym quick as possible,then let it rest,it shouldn't be taking you 2 hrs to workout,an hour tops or your just not pushing fast/hard enough...you go to long and the cortisol kicks in and defeats your workout....Don't Overtrain..

    Personally 1 body part ED,and I don't see that not working for anybody,its all these 3 days splits and stuff that some don't respond to,1 body part per day should be your bread and butter and then journey from there and see what works for you

    I LOVE Push/pull sets for bi's and tri's. For some reason, when I use push/pull sets I can spend more time in the gym at every session. I don't seems to tire as easily. Of course, when I wake up the next morning, I feel like a bus ran me the f*** over...LOL

    that's the only way I train arms. Both tri's/bi's together! The feeling I get - the pump - is insane!
