BIG ARMS are cool...How did you get them?
- 07-26-2008, 10:23 AM
I rarely seem to do biceps. I do tris on my chest days. When i do a day of biceps and hit them hard they just seem to explode in size for the next day or so. Where as when i don't do them my gf tells me they look a lot smaller
i seem to be getting a few stretch marks on my left bicep. So i don't think i'll be hitting my bis hard till i get my Java lather soap
Also, when i do my biceps i'd do them once a week and no more.“We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.”

I think the biggest thing that helped me was supersetting for 4 weeks then cutting back to single and compound exerices. Basically doing just a bicep (supersetting) and tricep day then switching 4 weeks in to doin back and biceps basically compound and single movements.

Yeah get Bio Oil, its like $14 at shoppers and its working a little for me so far. I read some article on it and it is suppose to be a "break through" for reducing scars. My buddy works at shoppers and many pregnant women say great things about it and it is constantly out of stock which is a good thing. The java soap bars... the big one may last 2 weeks max... they dissolve quickly and are expensive.

I have tried a pretty intense arms program, and it felt like my arms were going to explode...here it is.
all exercises: 4 sets of 8 - 12
Straight Bar Curls supersetted w/ Laying Triceps extension
Dumbbell Hammers w/ Cable Tri Pushdowns
Seated Incline DB curls w/ Kneeling Cable Extension
Concentration Curls w/ 1 Hand DB Overhead Tri Extension
I got really good results with it, and i'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking to change up their routine for 3 - 4 weeks and wants bigger arms
when i did this, i was taking NO Explode, so that may account for some of the size gains, but regardless, with or without supps, this is a solid workoout

preexhaustion of the left bi before a back workout. Extra reps and sets on left for bis/tris and trying extra hard to focus on form and not giving all the weight to the right on any compound exercise through the week....
conversly my left pectoral is also larger then my right for the same reason.. the larger right arm has been taking away from the pecs taking all the weight and now have to do extra exercises (namely close fly since it eleminates the arm mostly) for my right pec... its not so noticable though like the arms.

seated incline db partial curls.... sets of 20, 15, 15, 10, (cut weight in half) to failure
just tried these sets the other night, and i was really impressed at the work you can get done with lighter weights...so if you re one of the guys who lifts heavy and cant get the results you want, try giving this a shot

that all day arms shiz looks retarded... if pple actually add size to there arms with that routine it's nothing more than glycogen/water/fat
best routine i'v found for arms is having a seperate arm's day, and rotating sets with bi's and tri's... strength should be pretty equal between two, and if one is lagging then that can stall growth
so it would be...
set 1 - DB Curls
Set 2- Skull Crushers
Set 3 - DB Curls
Set 4 - Skull crushers
after 3-4 heavy sets of each your arms are so swollen it's rediculous
but no matter what your routine is your gonna have to be bulking to add size to your arms... 5lbs of bodyweight should give you a half inch on your arms if you training them correctly

2x a week heavy heavy barbell cheat curls, 5x5, same thing with close grips. Then I do a minimum of 12 sets of other exercises for both bis and tris in the 8-10 rep range with strict form. But heavy barbell curls and close grips are the "meat and potatoes" of building big arms.

another note, i didn't start at twice a week. I used to do this 1x a week b/c of how sore I was and worked my way up to a higher frequency.
