    Biceps and Forearms?


    Do biceps and forearms go together like chest and triceps. Is it better to work them both out the same day or does it matter if i work them out on a leg day?

    My Workout
    Day1 Chest Shoulders Triceps
    Day2 Back biceps
    Day3 Legs Forearms
    day 4 rest
    Day 5 repeat

    my dad gave me this workout though

    Day1 Chest Shoulders Triceps
    Day2 legs Back biceps forearms
    Day3 rest
    day 4 rest
    Day 5 repeat


    what workout do u think is better cuz i like doing legs on a separate day

    If you work them on the same day as biceps make sure it is down after your bicep routine. If you forearms are tired it may interfere with your bicep routine. I personally throw forarms in on leg or shoulder days. Some reverse curls or wrist curls.

    I recently started doing a new forearm exercise. Go to the High or Low pulley and remove the clip. Put on about as much as you do on wrist curls. Grab the small ball that is on the end of the pulley. Grasp it best you can and do about 10-15 wrist curls holding for a second at the peak of the contraction. It's great for forearms and grip strength.

    your routine is better. I would recc:

    1- Shoulders/Abs
    2-Back/Bis
    3-Chest/ Tris
    4-Rest
    5- Legs/Abs

    I like using the low pulley with the small straight bar. I place a bench next to it, sit at the end, elbows in between knees and perform wrist curls. The resistance is great. If this makes any sense, lol. I prefer the overhand grip over the under hand grip.

    X2 on the overhand grip. I can't use the straight bar for wrist curls because of my wrists. Preacher curls pwned me.
