Will this be to MUCH! Bigger arms?

  1. Will this be to MUCH! Bigger arms?


    Hey guys, question about somthing I just started. I workout 5-6 days a week with 5 days of lifting( for about 3 years, lifting about 11 years total), one muscle a day and I hit it HARD! I wanted to get some more arm work... who dosnt want bigger arms! So this what I am trying, what do you guys think. To much or no?

    Monday: Chest aprox 8-10 working sets, 8-10 reps/ 3 sets of tri's to end it!!!!

    Tuesday: Back aprox 8-10 working sets 6-10 reps/ 3 sets of Bieceps to end!!!

    Wend: Legs and abbs

    Thurs: Off

    Fri: I hit arms hard!!!!

    Sat: Shoulders

    Sun: Off


  2. Looks like a good routine. Do it for as long as you are making gains. Once you start hitting plateaus consistently then change it up.

  3. or this

    monday chest
    tuesday back
    wends off
    thurs shoulders
    fri arms
    sat off
    sun legs

  5. I think it will vary from person to person but if you see progress with that routine, I see no need to change it.

  6. If you hit your arms hard, your shoulder press on the following day may suffer due to exhausted triceps.... Id do shoulders before arms if thats the plan your going for...

  7. you will not know it's too much until you try it for a while. listen to your body, it will tell you if it's too much. what might be too much for me might not be for you.

    I would change ARMS / SHOULDERS, don't do them in a row since you're using your arms for both. Mix it with legs.

    Something like

    Legs / Abs
    ARMS
    Off
    Shoulders

    For me LEGS / ABS is like an off day because I don't use my upperbody. Just my 2 cents!

  9. That makes sence! Gonna have to rethink it, going to try for a few weeks at fist and then change it up. That might be good, and keep the body guessing.

    Bit iffy about this one
    You have the 3 heaviest workouts in a row.

    I would split it something more like this
    monday-off
    tuesday- shoulders/abs
    wednesday- arms
    thursday legs
    friday - off
    sat- chest ( do some volume pumping tri work at the end maybe)
    sun- back (do some volume pumping bi work at the end maybe)

  11. If you absolutely KILL it on your chest day and back day then your arms should grow no problem. Maybe a few ancillary exercise toward the end like you proposed to help take em to complete exhaustion.

    There are several guys at my gym who don't lift their arms at all (hit compound lifts hard with some ancillary exercises) and have the most ridiculous arms i've ever seen.

    Every once in a great while I'll throw in an arm day, but I do enough volume on my M/W/F workouts that it's usually not needed.

    Volume x Heavy Weight = growth!!!
